There are two ways to apply your lace wig:
1. You can use tapes or glue to apply the wig. You will need double sided tape, scissor, clips, cosmetic sponge, alcohol, a Q-tip or spatula, a skin protector, the adhesive, adhesive remover, wig cap ( if you prefer to wear one) and a silk or satin scarf.
Use a liquid adhesive that is suitable for human skin - You can use a wig cap which should be a little lighter than your complexion to keep your hair and hairline in one place. Otherwise braid, wrap or pin curl your hair to keep it in place.
Clean your hairline and in front of your hairline all around with a cosmetic sponge containing alcohol. Wait until it dries.
Apply the skin protector in front of your hairline all around your head and wait until it dries.
Clip the baby hair and the hair backwards away from the perimeter of the lace wig, so that the lace is fully shown. Cut off the excess lace from around the perimeter, leaving at least one inch of lace around the perimeter with half inch on either side.
Fit the Lace wig on your head to find the center and a comfortable fit. You can use an eyebrow pencil to lightly trace around your hairline where you wish the wig to be positioned once it is bonded. Mark the center on your forehead. Take the lace wig off then apply the adhesive on your skin, in front of the hairline, right around your head with either the Q-tip, spatula or the adhesive applicator in the bottle. Ensure that the adhesive is not applied to your hairline but in front of your hairline.
When the adhesive dries, or feels just a bit tacky, place the wig on your head with the edges rolled back. Once you have positioned the wig according to your desired fit, release the edges of the lace and press gently all around the hairline. The adhesives cause zero damage to the hairline as long as an adhesive remover is used to remove the adhesive when taking off the wig. The Hair Therapy Adhesive is recommended for those with very sensitive skin.
Use a silk or satin scarf to tie around the edges until the adhesive is cured before styling.
2. Use a double sided tape - This method is more involved than the liquid adhesive. Prepare your head and lace wig as previously mentioned above. After cutting the tape into lengths of three inches, attach the tape firmly around the perimeter of your unit
Position the unit on your head, removing the backing of the tape, in sections, a little at at time.
Starting from the middle of your forehead at the hairline, firmly press the tape into your skin with a tail comb, working on one side and then on the next.
Use a silk or satin scarf to tie around the edges until the adhesive has set (according to the manufacturer set time) before styling.
How to removing your lace wig
Pull your lace wig in a ponytail and apply a solvent around the edges of your lace wig. Let the solvent sit for about 2-5 minutes. Be patient and take your time. Work the solvent in with your fingers and gently pull the lace free. Once you have removed your lace wig; shampoo it and remove any leftover glue/tape gently with a towel. Let the lace wig air dry and style.
