Wig Glue

Once you really delve into the world of wigs and realize all the variety of pieces out there, there will come a time when you start wearing wigs that need to be firmly attached to your hair.  I’m talking lace front wigs and the like.  To make sure the wig doesn’t stick and stays applied to your hair you need wig glue.

Wig glue is pretty easy to find either at your local wig shop or online from a wig retailer.  Whichever purchaser you choose to get it from it’s important to understand how to apply it.  First never handle wig glue barehanded.  While it’s say to apply on the scalp, I just wouldn’t recommend it so for your own safety I suggest just using an applicator.  Also, please remember to do this in front of a mirror.

Applying wig glue is actually really simple.  First put on the wig.  Once on use pins (I recommend duck pins) to pull back stray hair so that you can clearly see the wig line. Next fold the front of the wig back a little to fully reveal the forehead.  Now use a pencil ( eyeliner pencil will work fine) to mark on your forehead where you want your hairline to start once the wig is firmly applied.  Once that’s done you can apply the glue with the applicator.

Remember you don’t need a lot of glue to do the job right.  Just a nice line along the marks that you placed on your forehead.  Finally you can put the wig in place over the glue to firmly stick it on with your new hairline.  Please note that it takes a little time for the glue to dry so don’t move the wig.  Instead use a bandanna to keep the wig in place at least for an hour.

Wig glue also comes off by itself though the time varies by the producer but it should start peeling after about a week so make sure that this is a look you want to wear.  Once the wig loosens its grip on your head, remember to wash up any that remains.  If you want a full tutorial there are plenty on YouTube to help you along.  That’s where I figured it out.
