Lace wigs allow you to experiment with a different hairstyle while make sure that your lace wig is being kept in place. A lace front wig can stay attached for up to 6 weeks when properly sealed. Learning how to maintain the seal on a lace front wig and full lace wig can extend the life of your hairstyle and help you avoid embarrassing hair fly away situations sometimes.
Things You'll Need to Prepare:Rubbing alcohol,Cotton balls,Hair glue.
Instructions about this problem:
1.Keep the application area clean and dry. Failure to properly clean the application site before applying a lace front wig can result in a faulty seal that can easily be separated. Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, and use it to wipe away any oil and particles at the application area prior to attaching the lace front wig. Avoid using heavy oil-based sheens on the application area to prevent loosening the adhesive bond result.
2.Apply a tight seal with hair glue. Use short wide strokes to apply an adequate amount of glue from the edge of the application area into your hairline. Use your pointer finger to assess the glue by gently touching the area where you first began gluing. The glue should stretch easily and appear stringy when ready. This process may take up 10 minutes, and it is vital to keeping the lace wig down. Start at the mid-forehead and begin pressing the wig down until the entire application area is covered. When applied correctly, lace wigs can be attached with glue for up to 5 weeks or more.
3.Secure the lace front wig or full lace wig with double-sided tape if you would rather use tape instead of hair glue. Peel away the protective backing of one side of the tape and attach the exposed adhesive along your prepped hairline. Place the lace front wig along the tapeline and ensure it's in the correct fitted position. Begin peeling the backing off the second side of the tape and press the lace front wig in place until the front of the wig is completely applied. Double sided tape can hold lace front wigs and full lace wigs down for up to 6 weeks when properly applied. Bonding tape offers increased protection against scalp sweating problems.
4.Assess the bonding area regularly. Since factors such as physical activity and hairstyling stress affect the adhesive bond of a lace front wig or a full lace wig, it's important to stop minor problems before the lace wig comes completely out of place. Use a mirror to look for weakened points along the adhesive area. Correct weak spots by applying additional glue or tape after cleansing the area. When several weak spots are found, it's time to remove the lace front wig or full lace wig, and you can prepare a new application then.
5.Protect the adhesive bond. Extend the life of your lace front wig and full lace wig application by taking precautions against undue stress along the adhesive site. Wear hats and scarves during windy weather to keep the lace wig down. Wrap your hair up at night to prevent excessive rubbing and sweating at the site. Avoid pulling the lace wig into tight ponytails.
