How To Wear A Lace Wig ?
Step 1: Preparation
Wash your scalp with soap and water to ensure the application area is oil-free. Spray scalp protector directly on your head to act as a barrier between your skin and the adhesive.
Apply adhesive with the brush to areas onto which the wig will attach. Using the cool air setting, blow dry the adhesive for about 30 seconds.
Place the front part of the wig on your forehead and press firmly with both hands for at least 60 seconds. Attach the sides to the matching areas on your scalp and press firmly again for another minute.
Step 2: Trim the lace on the lace wig
Trim the lace on the lace wig. This only needs to be done the first time you use your wig, and it does not need to be done if the lace has already been trimmed by the manufacturer. To trim the lace, put the wig on your head. Use hair clips to fasten the wig hair back away from your scalp line.
Step 3: Protect your skin
Clean the skin by your hairline with a cotton ball dampened with isopropyl alcohol to remove body oils that could prevent the wig adhesive from sticking properly.
Meanwhile, Apply scalp protector to the skin by your hairline. This only is necessary if you have sensitive skin.
Step 4: Apply Adhesive
With your fingers, apply your favorite edge control product or gel to lay down your edges to perfection.
If using adhesive glue, apply a thin layer to the entire hairline using a small makeup brush or cosmetic stick. If using a soft bond adhesive, don't apply the wig immediately. Wait until the glue has become tacky. If using a hard bond adhesive, the wig can be applied immediately, as this type of glue bonds immediately.
Step 5: Attach the Wig
Line the wig part up as desired and use the wig combs to secure it onto your hair. Make sure not to pull too tight!
Those attaching a wig with glue should start by attaching the wig at the hairline in the front middle of the forehead. Gently press the edge of the wig down against the glued skin, working around the hairline until it is attached around the entire hairline.
Step 6: Style your wig
Pull the wig down and adjust as necessary. Flat ironing can help smooth down the top to mimic your hair. Press down on the edges of the wig for five seconds to make the adhesive stick to your skin. Style the wig as desired.
Position the lace frontal wig on your head. The easiest way to find the front-center of the wig is to part the hair on the wig. Parting the hair will reveal the hairline. The middle of the wig hairline should line up with the middle of your forehead at your hairline.
