How To Wear A Wig
You must follow some steps to wear a wig otherwise it won’t fulfill your expectations. So, let’s know about wearing a wig step by step.
💠 Step-1: Choose A Wig Type
The first step is to choose a wig type. There are four major types: the lace front type, full lace type, U-part lace type, and 360 lace frontal type. Choose any one according to your taste and needs.
💠 Step-2: Prepare Your Hair
If you have natural hair, you must pull them back from your frontal hairline and ensure that it won’t be visible under the wig. Use a stretchy headband or similar item to push your hair back from the hairline. Twist or pin up your hair back so that it can’t make bumps or uneven places.
💠 Step-3: Prepare Your Skin
Before putting on your wig, prepare your skin by wiping your skin around the hairline. Dip a cotton pad into an alcohol solution and use it for wiping. This will help the glue or adhesive tape stick better to your skin by removing excess oil and dirt. Then, apply a scalp protector gel, cream, or spray to avoid irritation and damage from the glue or tape.
💠 Step-4: Put On A Wig Cap
If you have whether long or short hair, you must wear a net or skin-toned nylon wig cap to prevent wig slippage. Make sure that all of your hair is underneath it. But, if you don’t have any hair, you can skip this step.
💠 Step-5: Apply The Glue Or Adhesive Tape
Apply a thin layer of wig glue through a makeup brush around your hairline or use some double strip adhesive tape to secure your wig. You can also use both of them. You don’t need to apply them to the entire scalp, apply just around the frontal hairline.
💠 Step-6: Put On The Wig And Fix
Now, put on your wig gently over your hairline and fix it with your fingers. Make sure that the glue and tape are not visible. If you are using a lace front wig, fix the lace properly. After fixing the wig, do any style with your wig hair and you are all set.
How To Remove A Wig
If you have used glue in your wig, pulling it down directly can be painful and harmful for your skin. Wet a towel into hot water and wipe constantly the glue area till the wig get loose and then pull down the wig gently.

Now, spray it around the hair edge and cover it with a shower cap for 5-10 minutes. The wig will get loose and then pull it down gently. You can also use a wig glue remover but it’s expensive and made of harmful chemicals.
