Clients of full service salons are trained to believe that it is okay to leave a hairpiece on for days or weeks, even if they have been perspiring. This is incorrect, unhealthy, stinky and disgusting. Learn to remove, clean and reattach quickly and always be clean, comfortable and never itchy or smelly.
Keep Lace Release, Adhesive Remover etc out of your eyes.
Residue can be removed from lace by pushing it firmly over a mirror or cling wrap.
Release thoroughly before pulling off so you don’t lose hairs
Clean all traces of removers/cleaners out of the base to enable to next adhesion to work.
Tie a bandana (not a banana) around your head or slip on a sports headband to protect the eyes from the alcohol in the lace release or the ingredients of the solvents that you use. It makes you look like Keith Richards for a few minutes.
If its a lace unit, drip or squirt lace release or alcohol through the lace from a very close distance to the head, then wait for it to work and then lift off the unit
If it's a non-porous base, such as polyskin, raise an edge and spray under the unit, progressively peeling back the base until it's off.
Adhesive remover will remove any remaining adhesive and residue, alcohol or lace release will remove adhesive remover, and water will remove alcohol. Then shampoo the unit, roll it in a towel to absorb most of the wetness.
