What are my options if I don't want to use adhesive to attach my full-lace wig?
Not all customers choose to use an adhesive bond on their full-lace wig, but it is the most popular attachment method because most customers want to put it on once and not have to worry about it for a while. In addition, if you have hair loss or severe thinning around the perimeter, wig clips and other mechanical attachment methods could potentially worsen that condition. It could, over time, pull out your hairs a few at a time and three to six months down the road, you start to notice a pattern of hair loss where the clips are located.
A third option that is becoming increasingly popular is sewing a lace front wig to a cornrowed pattern on the hair. This is a popular option for women who are accustomed to sewn in weaves, the stylist creates a circular braid pattern and creates an "anchor" cornrow that the lace wig is attached to. This keeps the lace wig securely in place, with occasional "tacking" with double sided tape around the hairline.
We work with each client to help them select the attachment method that is best for their lifestyle, hair care regime and desired outcome.
