Lace Front and Monofilament Tops
The lace front is a feature that gives you a virtually natural hairline that is seamless and looks like the hairs along the hairline are growing right out of your head.
Monofilament tops feature the same benefit of lace front in that they also give the illusion of hair growing out of your scalp where the hair is parted. Each hair is sewn in just like natural hair grows.
Make sure you are using the best products for your human hair wig. Amani features a variety of hair care products and essential oils which are great for your natural hair. Human hair wigs should be washed in cool water with a gentle shampoo and never heat dried!
