Now that you’ve chosen a Hair System based on your lifestyle, level of activity, and various other factors such as durability and comfort; you’ll need to choose your attachment method. The most popular methods of Hair System Attachment are clips, tape, and glue. Each method has its pros and cons, and knowing these can help you decide which one is the best for you. So without further ado, let’s start:
Clips – These are; literally, clips made of metal that secure your hair system. The “comb” part of the clip is passed through existing hair; after which it’s locked in place. Clips are secure and have a degree of comfort; but they need to be placed carefully, because using them in the wrong place can cause undue stress on the hair and may even promote further hair loss.
Tape – Tape is useful for quick and easy attachment. They are applied in pre-cut strips on the inside edges of the hair system. Tape is great for short-and long-term holds, but the downside is that it may leave a gooey, sticky residue that may result in longer clean-up times.
Glue – These come in solvent-and-water-based varieties. Of the two, solvent-based adhesives are the more popular choice because they provide more tack to be able to secure the hairpiece. Both are easy to apply, and can be used for daily and extended wear. The drawback is that you have to wait for your adhesive to dry before applying your hairpiece.
