Lace Wig Application  
 
The lace wig cap is applied with a special adhesive that is safe for human skin, or tape. The adhesive product secures the Lace Wig product along the hairline. The adhesive disappears into the lace front and creates the illusion of hair growing directly out of the scalp. The adhesive is not used directly on the hair. You may also purchase heavy duty adhesives or tape tabs to secure your wigs. These accessories are offered as options.
The wigs are fairly easy to attach. Your wig will come with FREE instructions on how to apply and care for the unit. Lace Wigs are PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS used mainly by trained professionals. We accept no responsibility for the manner in which this product is applied, used or misused.
Full Lace Wigs offer complete seamless blending around the entire perimeter of the wig allowing the wig to be worn in a ponytail or other pull-up style.

WIG APPLICATION

 

 

Step 1: Prep Your Hairline

Firstly, Place the wig on your head. You may corn row hair to the back, or pin hair up into a flat French roll, then place a stocking cap on.

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.

 
Step 2: Clean
After cleaning, dab or spray your Scalp Protector around the perimeter of your head right below your hairline. The scalp protector protects your skin as it creates a barrier between your skin and the adhesive. Allow the Scalp Protector to dry completely before applying the adhesive.
 
Step 3: Adhesive Application
Liquid Adhesive   Application

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. 

 
Tiding Up
  Once the unit is secure and dry, you may use a Cotton bud/Q-tip along with solvent remover to clean up any residue on skin. Be careful not to get it on the edge where you've attached it, as this will cause the lace front to begin lifting
The adjust a bond spray is also an excellent product to clean edges and allow time to adjust your placement for a clean flawless finish.

 
 
                                                                     
Removing Your Lace Front Wig

Accessories Needed:

Lace Release, C-22 Citrus Remover, 99% Alcohol/ Distilled Witch Hazel (much gentler)
C-22 adhesive remover, Lace Release, and 99% Alcohol will assist in removing your unit. Start out by putting the hair into a high ponytail. Take the Lace Release solvent remover or C-22 (works best when in a spray bottle), put along the edge of the lace front. Gently massage until glue is moistened. . Alternate between using C-22, Lace Release, and the 99% Alcohol to remove your lace. Begin slowly and gently lifting with fingers. If there is a spot that's not lifting it just means you need to apply a little more solvent. Do not pull or tug the lace, it will damage your lace and your hair. Repeat this all the way around the circumference of the lace front until completely removed. Once removed, use the solvent and a soft towel to gently remove any residue left on the unit.

 
 
Shampooing: Use Shampoo and conditioner produst ideal and compatible with lace wig and hair texture.
 

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.
