Cleaning Hair Systems

Learn how to properly clean a hair system. Over time, hair glue and hair tape applied to hair systems will eventually breakdown and get into the hair. To help protect your hair system, it is important to regularly clean it. We recommend every 2-4 weeks. By educating yourself and learning more will only help you make an informed decision before purchasing any products. Contact Hair Replacement Australia if you need any further information or advice.

How To Clean a Hair System

Firstly, apply Hair System Release soaking solution into a bowl of warm water and place the hair system into the bowl facing up and wait 5-10 minutes. Remove the hair system from the solution and lay it on a towel with the hair systems base facing up and the hair facing down. Clean the lace areas of the hair replacement system gently by brushing any remaining hair adhesive residue away with a fingernail brush. To clean the polyurethane areas, use a teaspoon to scrape any excess residue off with gentle strokes. After removing the excess hair adhesive residue, place the hair system back into the container of solution for a further 2-3 minutes.

How To Wash a Hair System

Remove from the hair cleaning solution and rinse the hair system with water. Spray Adhesive Solvent Remover onto the underside of the base. At this point, any remaining hair adhesive residue will have lost any stickiness.

Gently glide a fingernail brush across the edge of the base and out through the hair. Any remaining hair adhesive residue should easily slide off. After a few minutes of brushing, rinse with warm water through the base. Repeat this process a second time if required.

If there is still any hair adhesive residue remaining, it was not soaked in the Hair System Release soaking solution long enough.

How To Shampoo and Condition a Hair System

After rinsing thoroughly, wash the hair system again, this time using a hair system shampoo to balance the acid level and finally, condition. It should now be clean and clear of any hair adhesive residue.
