in much detail. Today I’ll discuss removing your lace wig which is quite simple. Let’s begin…
What You will Need
First, pull all of the hair up into a ponytail, so you will not get any adhesive on the hair.
Apply the lace adhesive remover to the adhesive around the edge of the hairline. I recommend the C-22 solvent with which is a citrus based solvent that you can just spray around the hairline and it just easily releases the glue with little effort.
It’s famous for acting quickly and being gentle on skin, this stuff works on tapes and liquid soft bonds and also has a fresh citrus scent, so your bathroom wont be filled with nasty fumes.
Wait at least 5 minutes before moving to the next step.
Slowly remove the lace. Be sure not to pull at the lace. Remove slowly.
After you have removed the lace, there may be some residue left on the unit which you can easily remove it by doing the “mirror-slide” trick. Get a small mirror and take your wig and slide the wig over the mirror where the adhesive is at. The adhesive will come off the unit and onto the mirror. Keep doing this until you have all the glue removed from the unit.
Tip: To easily help you clean all the glue off your mirror you can use a soft scour pad that you use on dishes to get all the glue off.
Now you can wash the unit and your hair and style before reapplying. You should shampoo the unit and with a towel, gently scrub away any left over residue if any. Finally, you can let the unit air dry or you can style it as you would your own hair.
