This point can't be stressed enough...LET IT DRY!!!!!!
Ok, I won't yell anymore, but I just have to be heard. The first time I applied glue to my freshly shaven scalp, I glopped it on and then slapped the hairpiece I had made on top of it. Those of you who have worn hair for years are probably gasping in horror. Well, I did too. Especially when the Ultrahold started seeping through the lace and the hair. It took HOURS to clean and I kept trying to make it look presentable. It didn't work.
After finding the HairDirect website, I finally read enough to realize I just wasn't being patient enough. Instead of my usual mantra - More has to be better! - I realized that I had to change the way I was thinking. More wasn't better, it was a disaster. So, less is more...
The next time was much better! I applied a VERY thin coat of ultrahold and then used a hair dryer to make certain it was totally dry. Guess what?! The glue only holds well when it's totally dry before laying the lace on top of it. I actually applied 3 coats of glue and let each coat dry for at least 15 minutes before applying the next. When I say thin coats? I mean really thin coats - almost as thin as paper!
Of course, most of you know that I now use tape for most of my attachment. For me, it's just way easier to attach and to clean up. I still do use a bit of glue, but only for my hairline right in the front. I promise you, if you follow our tips without trying to be original, these methods will work for you!
