1. Make sure that your skin is free of oil and sweaty before installing a lace front wig. That is because oil on your skin will lead to your lace wig lifting and reducing the length of time that your wig remains attached.
Therefore, you can use 91% alcohol to remove any oil from the perimeter of your hairline before installing a lace front wig.
Although 99% alcohol works as well, it may be harsh to your skin. Compared to 91% alcohol，99% alcohol is better suited to remove adhesive from your lace as opposed to your skin.
2. If you work out often, or if you sweat a lot, it is best for you to apply a water-resistant adhesive. After all, the Got2B Glued or any other make-shift lace adhesive is a temporary fix that will only hold your lace down for 2-3 days.
If you sweat too often, It won’t even last that long so that the lace will lift off your head! Thus, please always use a water-resistant adhesive for long-lasting flawless results.
Not only A water-resistant adhesive can make the lace won’t lift no matter how much you sweat, but also will also allow you to slay a frontal in the pool or at the beach.
3. Keep your hairline tied down with an elastic melt band during rest periods, which can reduce daily maintenance to some extent.
4. Do a skin test in advance. Some people are allergic to the chemicals used to keep a humna hair wig in place. So it is very important to do a skin test to determine whether or not you are allergic.
First, dab a small amount of liquid adhesive or double-sided wig tape onto the back of your hand. Next, observe the adhesive for at least twenty-four hours.
If the skin becomes red or irritated, purchase a hypoallergenic wig tape or adhesive instead. If the skin is unaffected, you can safely wear the wig.
