How Long will My Wig Last?
A lace wig unit can last for many months or even years depending on your usage and upkeep. The types of glues that are used during the application method also applies to the life span of your unit. For example, the lace wig can be compared to the tires on car; of course the more you drive your car, the more worn down the tires become and the need for replacement tires becomes greater. The idea remains that if you plan to wear your wig more often, the natural need for a new unit will become greater as the hair naturally degrades due to extended periods of use.
Can I wear this wig even if I have my own hair?
Yes. You will have to make your own hair as flat as possible, by wrapping or braiding it. Then apply a flesh toned stocking cap over your natural hair to simulate your scalp color.
What If I have Experienced severe hair loss due to an illness or chemical damage? Is this type of wig right for me?
Absolutely! I highly recommend this system for anyone with any kind of hair loss or undergoing Chemotherapy. If you suffer from a medical condition where you have experienced sever hair loss, it's recommended to proceed with full french or full swiss lace. This will ensure the most comfortable "perfect" fit.
Can I swim or go to the gym and sweat with this wig on?
Yes. You can do your usual activities with this wig on daily. Only avoid swimming or sweating for 24 hours after applying adhesives and tapes. If you use the Safe Grip Copolymer bond, you only have to wait until it is dry. Other than that, no one will ever know the hair is not growing from your own scalp! Also make sure you use a waterproof adhesive. Not all adhesives and glues are waterproof. The combination of the Scalp Protector and Safe Grip Copolymer bond will ensure the strongest and best water resistant application available.
What are some recommended Lace Wig Adhesives?
There are three main ways to attach the lace wig system. That is by special glues, tape, or a combination of the two methods.
We carry all the medical grade adhesive glues that will not irritate the skin and provide a long lasting hold. We break our glues into three separate base types; that being silicon, acrylic and copolymer. Each have different lasting properties but all are well tested and have been in used for years for lace.
Using Beginner Glues
The Mity Tite is a medical grade acrylic glue that can be used for an application duration of 1-10 days. The application duration depends mainly on how much glue is applied and if the combination of lace tape is involved. The Mity Tite is the most popular glue that is used by beginners during the application process.
Using Expert Glues
The Safe Grip is a copolymer medical adhesive and is the latest development in applying lace to the scalp. This glue can provide an application duration of 1-6 weeks. The Safe Grip adhesive does not break down by your body oils, sweat, or perspiration. It is very flexible and dries completely transparent, making sure that no one sees the bond or the lace on your scalp. The Safe Grip is the most popular used by experienced users.
Using Tape Adhesives
The type of Lace Wig Tape used for wig application is a special, clear, two-sided lace tape adhesive. The lace tape comes available in a pack of 30 pieces and is applied directly on your scalp or wig cap by simply attaching the lace onto the tape. The double sided tape is clear and holds the lace very well. The duration of lace tape is can last 1-3 days.
Please note: To ensure the best hold possible for your lace wig system; You may use the tape with and beginner glue or expert glue. Although the combination of Mity Tite and Tape is most preferred by new lace wig users.
