RE: Gym/Fitness/Active Lifestyle - Advice Needed
You won`t have to wait 5 minutes for the lace-release to work..... I find the system lifts off pretty quickly after application...remember, it`s an alcohol and will evaporate off fairly fast, so you can find the adhesive material under the lace can begin to grip again [albeit weakly] if you don`t remove the system.
Glue melter is another alcohol ...tends to make the glue `gooey`...you may well need 2 or 3 applications to get all residue off [the scalp especially] The citrus -based glue Solvents are the ultimate clean-up product..... put a sweat-band around the head once the system is removed, spray it on, and wait around 10 minutes.....you can then simply wipe it all off with kitchen-towel...... shampoo your head as normal then..... it can be a bit `oily`, so if you apply it to residue on lace, it will need to be shampooed out/off or it can interfere with your new bond. I`m lazy with my bonds and don`t do an all-around perimeter bond as I detach nightly, and I find with a Fullcap , I can just apply the strips of tape to the scalp first, peel back a corner of the backing paper , then sit /position the system on, and peel off the various strips one -by-one as I go and press the lace onto them..... I appreciate it can be tricky as a newbie , to position your system correctly, until you get the `hang`of it.... I guess the best thing is to apply strips of tape to you system first, peel back a `start-point` of the backing papers, then sit it onto your head, and once happy it`s in the correct position, just attach it [ on each temple-point is good] ....that`ll hold it at those `anchor-points` ...take your time going around the rest of the perimeter, don`t stretch it too much if you can avoid it, or you`ll end up with it feeling `tight`on one side, and bunched-up/rippled on the other side. Once you have your tapes area done, just mark your front hairline with an eyebrow pencil, fold your system back from the front and apply your glue in thin coats, making sure each coat is almost dry before applying the next.......you can `clip`the hair[ front edge] back out of your way onto the hair behind it with something like a clothes-peg or even a large elastic band anchored under the chin and up onto the folded-back part of the system.That`ll keep it out of your way while you apply your glue...... when you fold it down onto the glued area, if any `stray`hairs get stuck onto any `excess`glue, just dip the end of a Q-tip into lace-release, and dab at the hairs----that`ll free them....... moisten a cotton pad with glue-melter and carefully go around your front perimeter removing any `stray`glue which might be outside your pencil-line and indeed , clean off your pencil -line too.....do it carefully as you don`t want to squeeze glue-melter in behind the line or you`ll affect the bond you need to keep `good`..... this will get a lot easier as you go along...... the early days are always a bit fraught or nerve-wracking.....cheers for now.
p.s. Have a look at the `Michigan Baldie` clip on this link..... it`s the 7th one down the page there....
