Extended Wear Hair System Attachment Tips
If you wear your hair system for more than 1 week at a time before taking it off, use the tips below for a stronger, longer-lasting hair replacement bonding. Or, try our tips for daily wear attachment if you take your system off more than once a week.
- Always clean and prepare your scalp properly before attaching the hair system.
- Regardless of the type of adhesive you use, it’s important to apply red liner tape to the polyurethane surfaces as an undercoat to accommodate easy clean-up.
- After showering or working out, the bond might seem like it is weakening. This is expected, your hair system is still attached securely, but the bond has softened a bit due to extra heat and moisture. Don't touch the hairpiece and as your body cools, the bond will harden again.
- Airborne dust will attach itself to the toupee adhesive in the front edge of lace units and may become visible over time. Immediately after a shower is the easiest time to clean this area because the hairpiece adhesive is pliable. Spray a liberal amount of Adjust A-Bond on the tip of a double folded tissue. Hold your hair system back with one hand and wipe the edge of the lace using the saturated tissue with the other hand. This trick will help keep your lace front edge invisible at all times.
