Lace Wig Adhesives, Tapes & Supplies

 

There are many different kinds of bonding tapes and glues on the market that are made especially for the use with lace wigs & other hair extensions. The adhesive that is best for you will depend on your personal preference, lifestyle and your body's chemistry (people have different results using the same products as people vary, for example, with respect to whether they have oily or sensitive skin).  Adhesive used for adhering hairpieces, and other light weight attachments and prostheses to the skin with a typical holding time from several days to over 30-days. Please keep in mind that hold times will vary depending on application method used, skin-type, and environmental conditions. 

 

 

 Adhesives

 

Invisi-Bond Adhesive

 

  

Invisi-Bond Adhesive

Invisi-Bond provides a long-term hold, comfortably and safely. Invisi-Bond" is waterproof (once dry), latex-free, virtually odorless, shine-free and very aggressive. It is the perfect skin-safe liquid adhesive for adhering attachments to the skin. It will provide a long-lasting hold and remain completely flexible. Apply by brush. (hold varies from person to person)

For extended wear, apply Invisi-Bond to both the skin and the attachment. Let the Invisi-Bond dry to a clear, matte finish. Press the attachment firmly into place over the Invisi-Bond that has already been brushed onto the skin.

For daily wear, apply Invisi-Bond to either the skin or the attachment, (e.g. hairpiece base). Allow Invisi-Bond to dry completely at which time it will be clear with a slight matte finish. Press the attachment into place with even, but firm pressure.

                                       

Latex free and provides a long-lasting 4 - 6 week bonding periods, skin-safe bonding (hold time varies from person to person)

 

 

 Secure Silicone 

 

Secure Silicone  

 

Secure Silicone Soft Bond Adhesive  

Extended wear 2-4 week hold. A clear, silicon bonding adhesive with a convenient brush-cap application. We recommend our skin protector to be used in conjunction with this product, for and even better and long lasting hold. 

Endura-Bond

Endura-Bond

  

Endura-Bond (EB) is specially formulated to be skin-safe and is one of our strongest glues. It is considered a "hard bond"- allowing for extended wear and it is also water resistant. Unlike other adhesives, which may break down when exposed to moisture, Endura-Bond cures when exposed to sweat, water and humidity. Beginners should take caution, as the hold is so strong- this is not the glue to accommodate for multiple mistakes. All users should USE SPARINGLY! Only use a very thin bead around the perimeter of your lace wig. We recommend applying with a point as thin as a toothpick rather than using the bottle's applicator. Because EB dries very hard, it can be difficult to remove from fragile lace caps. We hear very little to no complaint that EB does not "work". If there is a problem, it is usually attributed to the glue being too strong for the client (e.g., clients who like to remove their units more often) or that it is more difficult to clean off lace bases.

During the summer months, Endura-Bond should be kept in freezer to prolong shelf life (it will not freeze solid). Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before use and place back into freezer after use.

Ultra Hold

Ultra Hold

 

This adhesive can easily provide up to 4 weeks of super-strengh attachment. Ultra Hold isn't only the name, BUT also a great description of what you'll get!

Walker Rapid Release is an extremely fast acting adhesive remover. Walker claims it's the fastest adhesive remover out there. Our in-house techs agree and do not recommend letting it soak overnight.

The downside of this remover is that there have been reports of it irritating skin so it should not be used on your scalp. However, if you need to remove the adhesive from the base of your hairpiece when you clean, maintain or before you reapply new adhesive, then you should consider using Rapid Release.
