Double side wig tape is not the same as the double sided tape from the craft section. Wig tape is specially formulated to adhere to skin and uses paper backing to protect both sides of the tape. The most important thing to consider when applying double-side tape to a lace front wig is the presence or absence of a bonding area on the hairline of the lace wig.
Without this bonding area or area of coated threads, repeated application and removal of the tape will cause the lace threads to deteriorate and the lace wig hair shedding. add one before application of the lace wig if their is not on the lace wig.
Things to prepare:Nylon wig cap,Razor,Scissors.
1.Wash and dry your own hair. Secure it in cornrow or with a nylon wig cap to do this.
2.Shave or cut any babyhairs around your hair line to protect them from the adhesive stain.
3.Examine the hairline of the lace front wig for a bonding area. When necessary,paint on a wig undercoating to the hairline.
4.Cut the double side tape into 2 or 3 inch strips and remove the paper backing from one side. Smaller strips will be easier to shape to the hairline without wrinkling the tape!
5.Press the tape onto the entire hairline of the lace wig. Cut the tape as necessary to conform it to the shape of the hairline. The more tape you apply, the more secure the lace wig will be.
6.Dog-ear the paper backing on the other side of the tape, but do not remove it. This will make it easier to pull off the backing once the lace wig is on your head!
7.Wipe your hair line with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol to remove any body oils on it.
8.Put on the lace wig and align the hairline that can match your natural hairline.
9.Lift the edge of the lace front wig hairline at front, center of the wig. Remove the backing from the piece or pieces of of tape you have revealed and press the tape into your skin. Continue working around your hairline, alternating between the left and right sides to attach the lace front wig evenly and firmly.
10.Tie a silk or nylon scarf around the lace front wig at the hairline to press the lace front wig tightly to your skin while the adhesive sets. Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer to speed the procedures.
