Hair System Removal

Removing a hair system can be difficult and painful if you do not do it correctly. The material in hair systems is quite delicate and you could risk tearing or damaging it if you are not careful as well as shortening the lifespan.

For an easy and safe way to remove a hair system, follow the instructions below.

How To Remove a Lace Hair System

Apply a hair glue remover such as Lace Release directly onto the hair system and allow 1-2 minutes for the hair adhesive remover to soak in and break down the adhesive. Gently remove from back to front. It should now just lift off, leaving any hair tape or hair glue adhesive attached to your scalp and not the hair system.

How To Remove a Polyurethane Hair System

Spray a makeup pad with a hair adhesive remover such as C-22 Solvent or Ghost Buster until it is soaked. Using the tips of your fingers, feel around for the very back edge. Once you locate the back edge, gently scrape across the hair replacement system with your fingernail, peeling up enough of the base so you can grab onto it tightly with your fingertips. As you peel it off from back to front, dab the soaked pad between the bottom of the base and your scalp. This will help break down the tape or glue adhesive and make it easier to peel off. Remember to be careful not to pull too hard as you do not want to stretch the base material.

Hair systems should never be removed using hair clippers.

Not only is this painful, but you risk stretching the base material of the hair system, pulling it out of shape and weakening the hair knots, ultimately shortening the life expectancy of your hair system.
