To Glue Or Not To Glue?

So, you just got your first lace frontal wig, and sadly, when you install it, it just doesn’t stick to your head like on all the pictures you see on social media. Your solution: glue it down gal!

Although, if you had gotten your lace frontal wig from a good wig supplier, you should have received the training on wig installation and removal and all the other accessories you need.

Glueing your frontal is the best way to install your lace frontal wig. The glue used on frontal lace wigs is not the same glue used for bonding weaves. It is much lighter and is a gel. It’s very easy to apply during installation and also very easy to remove during the removal of the wig. and very safe to use on your scalp.

Wig Glues We Can Recommend

I have recently started using @thesanhair lace frontal glue gel and am so in love with it. It gives you an invisible, all-day lasting and worry-free lace frontal installation. This gel delivers ultimate control with a glue-like hold to keep your hair and lace frontal in place. You get to enjoy all of this without a sticky or flaky mess and no white residue. Easily remove by tapping the area with a warm, damp (water) cloth.

Another lace frontal glue that’s popular in the market, and that I have used and loved, is the @Got2b Glued Gel, as well as the blasting freeze holding spray. These products have a very strong hold that can hold down your lace frontal wig for up to a week. The only thing though is that I got a bit of the white residue after installation, so you need to be careful when installing. This is also quite easy to remove; just tap the area with a warm, damp (water) cloth. Product available at www.got2bgluedgelsouthafrica.co.za
