It All Starts With Your Natural Hair

Properly prepare your natural hair before applying your HD lace wig. This step is essential for ensuring your wig is comfortable and secure.

  • For long hair: Braid your hair into flat cornrows or tie it into a low bun.
  • For short hair: Use a wig cap or wig grip to keep your hair flat against your scalp.

Regardless of length, you must ensure your hair is clean and dry before wearing the wig.

Glueless Application

If, like most people, you prefer to wear your wig without using lace glue because it’s easier and doesn’t hurt your hairline, you’re in luck. Glueless wigs are designed to stay in place with minimal adhesive — you might only need a little lace tape, or Got2Be spray to keep them secure.

This method is incredibly excellent for daily use or for those with sensitive skin.

Here are some other effective glueless techniques you can try with your HD lace wig:

Cutting the Lace

  • Start by putting on your wig cap.
  • Place the wig on your head and ensure it matches your natural hairline.
  • Using small, sharp scissors, carefully trim the extra lace along the hairline.
  • Cut in a zig-zag pattern for a more natural look.

Adding a Glueless Band

If your wig doesn’t come with a glueless band, you can easily add one:

  • Measure around your head where the wig will sit.
  • Cut a strip of elastic band to this length, plus a little extra.
  • Sew this band inside the wig, just behind where your ears go.
  • This band helps keep the wig on without using glue.

Using Wig Combs and Adjustable Straps

Most HD lace wigs come with built-in combs and adjustable straps, which, when used properly, will keep your wig in place throughout the day.

Here’s how you can use them:

  • Push the combs into your hair or wig cap to keep the wig steady.
  • Tighten or loosen the straps at the back to make the wig fit well.

Silicone Headband Method

  • Place a silicone headband over your wig cap.
  • Put your wig on as usual, making sure it covers the headband.
  • This method protects your hairline and stops the wig from slipping, which is great when you’re active.

The Semi-Glueless Method

You can try lace tape if you want your wig to stay on better without using much glue. It’s an excellent middle ground between no glue and full glue. Start by cutting small strips and sticking them along your hairline.

Then, please remove the backing from the tape and carefully press your wig onto it.

This method helps keep your wig in place throughout the day, but it’s still easy to take off when you’re done.

It’s a great option if you want something more secure than just combs and straps but don’t want to avoid dealing with the hassle of a complete glue application.

Using Glue for All-Week Wear

Let’s say you want to wear your wig for five days or even a week straight. Your best bet would be to use an adhesive.

Choosing the Right Lace Adhesive

Choose a wig glue that lasts long, doesn’t dry out your skin, and is waterproof.

How to Put It On:

  • Clean your hairline with alcohol to remove any oils.
  • Apply a thin layer of lace glue along your hairline.
  • Wait about 1-2 minutes for it to get sticky.
  • Carefully put the wig on, lining it up with your natural hairline.
  • Use a rat-tail comb or your fingers to press the lace into the glue.

Styling HD Lace Wigs and Finishing Touches

Now that your wig is firmly in place, you can focus on styling it for a natural look:

Blending the Hairline

Use a soft brush or toothbrush to brush your baby’s hair gently. Then, apply edge control or styling gel to lay it down for a seamless blend.

Flattening Side Flaps

For shorter wigs, you can use mousse or styling foam to flatten any side flaps that might stick out. Apply the product and tie a scarf around the edges until it dries.

Adding Volume

If you want the hair to look fuller, use dry shampoo at the roots and gently tease them for added volume.

To help maintain your wig throughout the day, carry a small bottle of glue spray for touch-ups and quick fixes, and use oil-absorbing sheets to manage scalp sweating.

Also, try not to touch or adjust your wig too much; this could weaken the adhesive or cause the wig to shift.

Removing Your HD Lace Wig Safely

Taking off your wig the right way is essential to keeping your wig and hair healthy.

If you’re not using glue, carefully remove the wig starting from the back.

But if you’ve used glue, you’ll need to use a special Oil-Based Glue Remover to remove the glue gently.

Remember to never pull or tug hard on the wig, no matter your method. Being too rough can damage the delicate lace on the wig and even hurt your hair.

Always be gentle and patient when removing your wig to keep everything in good shape.
