Lace wigs are time, energy and money saving. They are a low maintenance, long lasting hairstyle too. This is one of the many reasons why lace wigs are starting to be in demand.
Not only does a lace wig look like your own hair (if applied correctly), it can be maintained as a wash and go style for an extended period of time. You can also get any style, texture or length you want and the piece can also be custom made and dyed to your liking.
Even though such units cost a bit initially, the money you save in constant salon trips will make the wig pay for itself.
In our last blog post, we taught you how to apply a lace wig on. In this blog post, we will teach you to safely remove it so you will be able to reuse it again.
You will need the following…
• Damp cloth
• Isopropyl alcohol
• Adhesive release spray
• Wig shampoo
• Soft-bristled toothbrush
Step 1: Wipe away any residue from previous wear with a warm, damp cloth. Rub at the glue or tape gently, saturating the bond with the warm cloth. Lift away any glue clumps or tape.
Step 2: Dip a small sponge in 99 percent isopropyl alcohol. Rub the soaked sponge over any wig tape or glue bonds. Do not soak the entire wig in alcohol, because this could dry out or damage your wig. After one or two minutes, lift the tape or glue away with your fingers. If you prefer, use your wig manufacturer’s recommended adhesive release spray instead of the alcohol.
Step 3: Shampoo the entire wig with wig shampoo. This last step should remove any remaining tape or glue left on the wig. Treat any stubborn spots with another dab of alcohol or adhesive release spray. Scrub the residue away using a soft-bristled toothbrush
