Using Wig Adhesive to Keep your Wig Secure
If you’ve ever worn a wig before, then chances are, you worried about it falling off your head, right? There is actually a way to keep the wig in place and that is by using body adhesive. But before we explore further how it can work wonders for wig wearers, let’s first learn a few things about it.
Uses of a Wig
A wig is used as a head covering and it is made from either human hair, synthetic fiber or animal hair. People use a wig for several reasons and one of which is to conceal hair loss. A wig can also be a less expensive substitute to medical treatment for restoring hair. In the arts, it can also be used as part of a costume by stage characters. A wig is also often used as a fashion accessory.
How the Wig is Made
Wig making is no easy task. It is quite complicated and meticulous. The two methods of attaching hair to wigs are:
• Weaving the root ends of the hair to three silk threads to form a “weft” which are then sewn to a base usually made of net or other material.
• Knotting a few strands of hair to a foundation using a knotting needle.
Before placing the wig over the head, the natural hair should be tied securely. Once covered, any extra wig lace should be trimmed. In order to secure the wig on the head without it getting loose, hairpins can be used to keep the lace intact. For a stronger hold, body adhesive is recommended, but the use of an adhesive is most suitable for those with balding head. Hold Up Body Adhesive is sure to keep the wig from falling off and hides any exposed lace.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, our product is a skin-safe adhesive. In fact, it is not just proven to be gentle on the skin, but it is also hypoallergenic. You will not experience any skin irritation, even for those with sensitive skin. It is safe on kid’s skin, too.
How strong can the adhesive hold the wig?
The glue can last from 8-10 hours with a single application, but it may need to be checked after a few hours of first use especially if you experience excessive sweating on the head. The sweat can reduce the firmness of the glue because it is water soluble, so the strength of the grip can diminish over a period of time.
Will the glue stick to existing hair?
The glue is best used by those with cases of hair loss instead of sticking glue on natural hair to make the wig stick. If you have natural hair, pins can do the trick in keeping the wig in place. For those with almost no hair or no hair at all, you can keep the wig intact through the use of body adhesive.
Will the body adhesive ruin the wig material?
No. Applying the glue will not in any way damage the quality of the wig material. It can be easily removed with water, so it leaves no stain when the wig is washed or cleaned.
Regardless of your reason for wearing a wig, you’d definitely want to avoid letting your wig fall off your head. Use body adhesives just to be on the safe side.
