You have been wearing your lace hair system for a little while now. You decide it is time to take your unit off and clean it; but once you take it off, there is always tape residue in your unit. It’s a pain for most people. What are you going to do?
Well, here are five easy steps to get your lace hair system looking like new again. This process will help to remove glue, adhesive, and other bonding agents from lace hair system bases as well as the hair on a lace hair system. If your unit is made from silicon or has any silicon anywhere on the unit, do NOT follow this procedure!
Remove the Tape
Start to peel the hairpiece tape from the polyurethane areas of your lace hair system. Do not attempt to peel away or remove any tape from lace areas otherwise you could damage the unit. If it’s difficult for you to peel the tape off, try to soak the lace hair system in adhesive remover first.
Soak the Lace Hair system
Soak the lace hair system in liquid solvent. Soaking times may vary depending on the type of lace hair system and adhesive you're using. Some will only need their unit to soak for 20 minutes while others may need to keep it in the solvent for up to 24 hours.
Clean Your Lace Hair system
Take the hair system out from the solvent and lay it in a sink with the hair on the bottom. Gently remove the residue with a finger nail brush. After getting most of the residue off, place your unit back into the solvent for several more minutes.
Rinse Your Lace Hair system
Move your hair system from the solvent back into the sink, squirt a liberal amount of hand dish washing liquid onto the base while it is still dripping wet with solvent. At this point, any remaining tape residue will have lost all tack. Gently glide the fingernail brush across the edge of the base and out through the hair — all the remaining residue should slide off easily. After a few minutes of brushing, rinse your hair system with high pressure lukewarm water down through the base. If there is still adhesive residue in your hair system, you probably didn't soak it in the solvent long enough.
Shampoo And Condition Your Lace Hair system
Finally, after rinsing thoroughly wash the unit again, this time using a mild shampoo to balance the acid level and lastly condition.
Your unit should now be clean and clear of the old tape residue.
