How to Use Hair Tape And Glue If You Bought A Hair System Already?
How to Apply Hair Tape?
Apply the tape adhesive to the underside of the hair system base. Start by finding a contour that matches the shape of the outer edge. If there is not a contour to match simply cut a strip from an adhesive roll to fit. When applying the toupee tape, place it as close to the outer edge as possible without going past the edge of your hair system. Press the tape down firmly.
For a full hair replacement system attachment, apply the hair tape adhesive from front to back length ways; use the contours around the perimeter of the hair system. Once the tape adhesive has been applied to the base, peel the backing off the strips that will attach to your scalp.
Some customers are used to fixing their hair replacement systems with liquid glue, while some prefer using tape. We often receive questions from customers about how to use tapes because they have never used tapes before.
Hair tape is not only easier to work with than glue, but it may also be preferable because it's more easily removed from your hair than glue residue. Learning how to use hair tape is also easy, another reason you may prefer to use it over glue.
Firstly, lay your replacement on a table with the top of the piece (hair side) face down. Brush any hair away from the edges of the interior skull cap. The skull cap is what your hair system is attached to.
Secondly, cut the hair tape into small pieces and press them along the edge of the skull cap so that the pieces of tape overlap slightly but don't extend it beyond the skull cap material. Make sure you peel the wax-paper strip off of the backside of the tape before pressing it into place. This tape works like any other kind of double-sided tape (one side is covered in a wax-paper strip so it won't stick to itself on the roll).
Thirdly, make sure the hair tape you've purchased is capable of supporting the replacement for the length of time you want to wear the hair. Toupeec has tapes that can support the replacement for a long time. https://www.toupee.com/super-tape-for-hair-extensions.html
Lastly, place the replacement on your head. Be careful not to let any of the hair from the replacement get under the skull cap and between the tape and your scalp. Press firmly along the edge of the replacement to attach it to your scalp.Now, you hair replacement should be well fixed on your head.
How To Apply Hair Glue
Apply a thin layer of adhesive on your scalp. Apply a thin layer to the underside of the base. Never apply directly to lace. Allow the glue adhesive to dry for 3-5 minutes each application. Position the hairline, then roll the hair system back over the scalp and press firmly. Leave to dry in place for several minutes before styling.
