We all love trying new hairstyles now and then, and a wig can help you change your look. But for many beauty lovers, one of the biggest concerns when wearing a wig is how to wear it correctly. If you think wig glue or tape is dirty, you'll want to find other easy solutions to hold and wear your wig. So, what can you use instead of wig glue? You have more options than you think! In this article, we'll cover several methods you can use to wear a wig without glue.
Many wig wearers ditch the hair glue and use a setting spray instead. Why? Like glue, the holding spray provides a long-lasting hold to keep your wig cap or hair shade firmly in place.
Plus, the spray has the great advantage that it's easier to spray on your hairline and can be layered without becoming bulky, making the wig look heavy or bulky. It keeps your wig safe for up to a week.
There are a few different ways to apply the spray using a handheld spray. We introduce one of the most popular methods today.
