Products to minimize the scratch factor of lace front wigs

Are you in love with lace fronts but having trouble adjusting to the scratchiness? We recommend checking out these products to help you out!

1. Scalping.
This stuff will slightly numb your scalp and reduce the itch. It is runny, though, so we recommend applying it with a cotton swab and allowing it to dry prior to applying your wig.

2. Monistat Soothing Care Skin Protection Powder Gel.
This is commonly used for "chub rub" by reducing friction when your thighs rub together as you walk. This stuff will likewise form a protective layer between your forehead and your wig! Apply and allow to dry before applying your wig. (Allow the product to dry completely so you can minimize residue deposits on your lace front.)

3. Orajel. We are referring to any of the dye-free varieties of this product.
These are the ones you should try as a nuclear option if all else fails. Orajel will temporarily numb the area where it is applied. Like the other options here, we recommend applying well before applying your wig -- about 10 minutes prior should be sufficient. Unlike the other products, though, we recommend wiping off the excess after this time has passed and then applying your wig to avoid depositing a lot of goo onto your lace front.

So to help cut down on confusion, I created this simple glossary of hair loss terms that you might see in my posts.
