How to Install a Lace Wig Without Glue?
Installing a lace wig is a great way to achieve natural-looking hair without damaging your own hair. However, if you're not comfortable using glue to secure your wig, there are other ways to do it. In this blog post, we'll show you how to install a lace wig without glue using tape or thread. Read on for tips and tricks!
Things You Will Need
To install a lace wig without glue, you will need the following:
Preparing Your Natural Hair
Before you begin, it's important to prep your natural hair. This will help the wig stay in place and look more natural.
Start by washing your hair with a mild shampoo and conditioner. Then, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your locks. Next, apply a moisturizing leave-in conditioner and allow your hair to air dry.
Once your hair is completely dry, use a boar bristle brush to smooth it into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. If you have any flyaways, you can tame them with hairspray or gel. Finally, put on a wig cap and secure it with bobby pins.
Applying The Tape
Now that your natural hair is prepped and your wig cap is in place, it's time to apply the wig tape. Cut strips of wig tape that are about 2 inches wide. For that, start from the front hairline, and apply the strips of tape along your hairline. Be sure to smooth down the tape, so it lies flat against your skin. Continue applying the tape until you reach the nape of your neck. Then, cut another strip of tape and secure it around the base of your ponytail.
Attaching The Wig
Now that your wig base is prepared, it's time to attach the wig. Start by holding the wig at the crown of your head. Then, gently lower it down over your head, aligning the hairline with your natural hairline.
Once the wig is in place, use your fingers to secure it to the tape gently. You can also use wig combs to help keep the wig in place.
Now that your lace wig is installed, it's time to style it! Start by brushing through the wig with a wide-tooth comb to detangle it. Then, use your fingers or a brush to style your wig into your desired look. If you want to wear your hair up, we recommend using bobby pins or clip-in extensions to secure it. And if you're planning on wearing your wig for an extended period of time, be sure to use a wig stand or mannequin head to keep it from getting damaged.
Installing a lace wig without glue is a great way to achieve a natural-looking hairline without damaging your own hair. Be sure to prep your natural hair and use wig tape or thread to secure the wig in place. With a little practice, you'll be a pro in no time!
