Step 1: Prep Your Hairline
Clean the skin around the outer edge of hairline all the way around with rubbing alcohol. Put lace front on from the back then gently pull forward to see where you want hair line to fall, (optional), use an eyeliner to mark where the edge of hairline falls, or make mental note. Once you are satisfied with the matching of the wig and your hairline, trim the lace back to the hairline and match it with your own hairline to ensure a natural appearance.
Flip or fold top half of lace front back, carefully apply a small thin line of adhesive. Remember, (a little goes a long way).
Depending on which adhesive you choose to use, it may come with an application brush. If your adhesive does not come with a brush then use a cotton bud/Q-tip item to apply the adhesive.
Use a cool blow dryer for about 30-45 seconds to dry the glue until it's tacky/sticky. Once the adhesive is tacky, this can take up to 20 minutes depending on which product you use, it is time to apply the wig. (It is very important to make sure that the adhesive is very tacky/sticky before you apply your lace wig because if it is not the wig may start to lift in a couple of days). Starting with the front hairline, press the lace wig unit and glued area together and apply constant pressure until the unit stays by itself. This may take 1 minute or longer, but be patient. Repeat the steps for your nape and sides. Before you style the wig please wait 20 minutes to allow the glue to adhere and completely dry.
These are the basic steps that you will take regardless of what type of liquid adhesive you use. You will develop your own application techniques with practice.
The wig tape is available in strips or as a roll. The tape is sticky on both sides. You will basically peel one side of the tape to expose the adhesive and apply a layer to your skin around the perimeter of your head below the hairline. You will then put the lace wig on your head and position it so that the perimeter edge of the wig lines up with edge of the tape. If you have not done so already you will want to pin the wig hair up so that loose hair does not get in the way during the attachment process. Once the wig hair is pinned up and out of the way, peel the tape backing off to reveal the adhesive. Beginning with the front hairline, proceed to attach the wig by pressing and holding it to the adhesive for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat the steps for your nape and sides.
You may shampoo your lace front while wearing it. You just want to be sure you are very gentle while doing so. Focus on getting the hair strands clean, do not massage as you would your own hair. Once finished, gently towel dry and blow dry on low or just let it air dry by itself. You may then apply a Silicon Mix leave-in conditioner then style roller set or air dry.
Run lukewarm water in a sink in your bathroom add a little shampoo as the water is running. Fill to about half full. Place lace front into water submerging it completely. Hold the unit by the front rim and dip the unit in and out. You can do this about four or five times to be sure the remove all dirt and residue from styling products, rinse with lukewarm water and gently squeeze excess water out. Apply a deep conditioner. Leave on for about 2 to 3 minutes, and then rinse with warm water making sure to rinse all the conditioner out. Let air dry or set on a towel under a dome dryer set on warm until dry or you can easily air dry.
Once Dry , Turn the unit inside our and Spray a Knot Sealer on the inside of the unit Sealing the knots so as to avoid Shedding and loosing hair. Fray block can also be used on the Lace to help avoid the unit from Fraying.
