TWO-SIDED WIG TAPE
TWO-SIDED WIG TAPE
SECURING A WIG WITH WIG TAPE
As discussed here is your swim tape to try. Aside from using it for swimming, this specialized tape can be used for all exercise as well as daily wear if you’re looking for added security especially when dealing with perspiration.
Note: Do not try to peel off both sides and place on your finger first or it will curl up and be unusable. It’s two sided so just peel off one side of the tape and place directly onto the cap.
Best places are at the temples, right and left side of nape and frontal hair line. This tape needs a clean scalp to adhere to. It does not adhere to hair very well and you’ll end up tearing your hair out. Not recommended.
If you have hair loss but good side burns and can afford to shave a teeny weeny bit in the front of the side burn, frontal hairline, and/or nape, then cut tape in very thin strips 1/8” and use there as well.
For those of you with some hair or those of you who are not gong to use your own bangs with the p.c. , the frontal hair line is terrific to utilize with the tape. There is also an area where the hair line is naturally curved which is commonly referred to as the recession area. Just pull the wig forward slightly and adhere to this area.
Before placing the wig directly onto your head make sure you have lined it up correctly. Once you are sure of it’s positioning, press wig down onto your scalp and hold for 3 seconds. If you have to move it to a different position do it quickly and immediately press down again. You should be able to get 2 wears out of the normal wear. One day with ‘wet’ wear. You can also reactivate it with a small amount of alcohol.
When removing tape make sure to brush away hair that may have stuck to tape then quickly remove tape. If you don’t remove the tape and keep adding more tape on top of it, your own body will cause tape to melt and it will be difficult to remove later on. If this happens you can go into any beautiful supply and ask for wig glue remover.
Dab a little remover onto a q-tip and rub the remainder of the tape off the wig. Tab with a clean dry cloth towel or paper towel and then reapply tape. Glue remover can be purchased from CreatedHair.com and salons for $12 +S&H.
The tape is available for purchase in 2 sizes: Sm. bag of strips $10 Lg. box 50 strips 1 X 12 $102 plus S&H. This should take you through the year.
Shampoo and conditioner for both human hair, the Water Wig™ & Active Wig is also available for purchase. Call to inquire.
