Toupee Tape Attaching Tips
People use Toupee Tapes and bonding adhesives in many ways. Here is a list of some of our favorite tips that are proven to be very helpful to help you achieve the strongest bond with complete and utter finesse.
1- Make sure your scalp is properly cleaned, shaved, and prepared for the adhesive.
2- Don’t overdo the toupee tape, use enough to keep it intact.
3- After you shower or workout, the bond may seem to get weaker. Expect it to loosen in presence of the moisture. Avoid touching it then and wait for your body to cool down it will harden again.
4- Always leave a little space between the tape and the edges to allow moisture and water to dry and not get oily if you are wearing your hair replacements for a longer period.
5- By spraying alcohol lightly on the scalp will enable you to have better hold on the tape before it bonds with the scalp or the hairpiece.
Leaving Gaps Between each lining of Tape
People who use this tape and have oily skin and extra oily scalp are advised to leave gaps between every two linings of tape. What is does is create a small breathing barrier which helps with shampooing and sweat.
In case you put extra tape for extra security, make sure to rinse thoroughly and that all the cream has been cleaned and released from the hair replacement system.
How Long Tape bonding can last?
This is purely a preference-based question. Some people wear their Toupee, intact, and strongly bonded for around one and a half months but many people prefer to tape their hair systems daily. If your skin is excessively oily and you sweat the tape will stay strongly intact for 3-7 days easily. In case your scalp is dry, it will stay strongly bonded for a much larger period. Lavivid recommends the customers to do a proper cleaning and regular removal after every 2-3 days. To keep your scalp and Toupee clean is very important for your skin and hygiene.
Some Common Questions with Toupee Hair Tape
Does which side of tape I stick to the skin matters?
We know that both sides of the tape are sticky but yes it matters which side you stick on your skin as the side designed to go on the skin has a stronger hold on your scalp. Usually, this is told in instructions of the tape and the hair systems.
Why is Alcohol Slide Important?
Alcohol slide is used to enhance the control over the tape attachment. When you are prepared to attach the tape onto your scalp, by spraying alcohol lightly on the tape and the base of the toupee- this will allow you to place and set the hair system on its place. The tape will return to being sticky and tacky and will hold the toupee on its place perfectly and securely after alcohol dries.
