Glueless wigs belong to lace wigs, but just as the name implies, they do not need to use adhesives to secure the wig in place.

You just need to put it on and you can go anywhere you want immediately, so it is also called wear and go wig.

When you wearing glueless wig, you do not need to put on glue anymore. This reduces the risk of scalp irritation and protects the health of your scalp. Second, wearing a glueless wig allows better airflow to the scalp, and lessens potential hair damage caused by humidity and sweat. You can take off your wig every night to let it and your scalp rest. It helps in preserving the natural moisture of the hair and scalp, promoting overall hair health.

1. Adjustable Elastic Straps
The biggest contributor to the glueless wig’s stability is the built-in adjustable elastic straps. These straps are typically located at the back of the wig and allow the wearer to adjust the fit and secure level according to their head size, preventing any accidental shifting or slipping during wear. Besides, the elastic straps instead of the combs, reduce the friction which can cause hair tangling and headaches.
