Prosthetic Installation

Miracles and Mane Custom Cranial Prosthetics are ready to wear. Patients have the option for our staff to cut the lace on closure units, however, frontals and full lace units would require the experience from a licensed stylist with 3-5 years experience in installing wigs.

  1. Braid or mold hair flat to head for a natural look.
  2. Apply your wig cap. Add makeup to the cap to match your complexion.
  3. Adjust the straps and combs of your wig to comfort.
  4. Apply Got2Be gel or spray let it sit until it gets tacky 1/4-1/2 inch on skin away from hairline. Repeat 2-3 times.
  5. Place lace on the area you applied adhesive.
  6. Style to your preference!


Cranial prosthetics are incredibly delicate.  Please avoid scratching, intense scrubbing, combing or using poor quality hair products to avoid balding of your prosthetic.

Brushing/Styling Hair

Softly brush or comb prosthetic using a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb. Brush the hair from the ends and work your way up to the root. Hold the hair at the root while combing to avoid tension.

Avoid using too many gels, lotions, oils or mousse since this can cause tangles and damage. To add moisture and keep it soft, apply a little amount of light moisturizing hair serum to easily form your curls or waves. Extra care should be taken if you use rollers, flat iron, curling or crimping devices.

Washing Hair

Hold your hair closure at the base as you saturate it with lukewarm water. Then apply a sulfate-free shampoo from root to ends. Rinse thoroughly with water and condition it the same way. Let your prosthetic air dry before use.

Avoid applying too much tension on the prosthetic and do not stretch too hard to avoid damage. Wash prosthetic once every 10 – 14 days very gently.  We recommend removing the prosthetic from your head before washing the unit. 


Prosthetics should be stored away from direct sunlight, heat, and dust. It is preferable to store a prosthetic that you plan to use on a regular basis on a wig stand or mannequin. This will help your prosthetic keep its style in place.

If you’re going on vacation and need to travel with your prosthetic, it should be stored in a sturdy container that will prevent it from being accidentally crushed. If you are a frequent traveler, investing in a custom prosthetic box may be the best option for you. 

When storing prosthetic for a long period of time, fold it in half from ear to ear, parted in the center.  If your prosthetic does not have a center part, place a small piece of tissue paper at the crown of the prosthetic to help it keep its shape during storage. Always clean and brush your prosthetic before storage. Storing a prosthetic that is damp or full of product can cause long term damage.
