How to clean the glue out of a skin-based hairpiece

Most of our glue-on hairpieces are not one-off products. After peeling off, the same glue-on hairpiece or wig could be reused if cleaned properly. And their lifespan could double or triple and save the client good fortune.

But when the glue-on hairpiece or wig gets peeled off, solid wig glue is usually seen on the underside of the hairpiece. Be it skin-based or lace based, etc.

In this post, we are listing a few solutions for our valued salon owners, hairstylists, and even barbers on how to help your customers get glue residues out of their hairpiece or wig, so the hair system can be reused as much as possible. Let’s start with Skin-based hairpiece.

What you will need to remove the glue from skin based hairpiece

•Adhesive remover

•Dry towel/paper towel

•Shampoo, conditioner, leave-in

STEP 1: Detach the skin hair system.

If the hair system is still partially stuck on your customer’s head, please consider using C22 solvent glue remover.

•Gently dab the liquid where the hair system remains attached to the head. Leave it soaking for a couple of minutes.

•Then you should be able to see the stuck section start lifting.

•Then be very patient; gently peel the hair system off.

STEP 2: Wash the skin hair system.

Turn on the faucet and adjust the water heater to average temperature, not too hot or too cold. Lukewarm is a good choice for washing a skin-based hairpiece.

•Flip the hairpiece upside down, and flush it from inside out with the lukewarm water from the faucet.

•After properly wetting the hairpiece, apply shampoo to the underside of the base and the hair on it.

•Be very gentle, and always wash the hair by running fingers through the hair in one direction.

STEP 3: Remove remaining glue residue on the skin base.

•After washing, gently squeeze it dry, and lay it flat on a dry towel.

•Then check if any glue residues remain on the base’s underside and wipe them off with a dry towel or adhesive solvent. Gentleness is the key.

STEP 4: Shampoo and condition the skin hair system.

•After the base is wiped clean, rinse it again, rewash it, apply a bit more shampoo, wash it the same way as before, and then rinse it clean and squeeze it dry again. 

•Use some hair conditioner or leave-in on the hair(avoid use on the base) if necessary. They can moisture the dry hair, and keep the hair smooth and free of tangles.

STEP 5: Leave the hair system to air dry.

•After everything is done, hang the semi-dry hair system on the dry towel or wig stand to air dry, which will keep your hairpiece in a good shape and condition.

•Avoid using a blow dryer on the hairpiece, which will make the hair prone to dry or break. If must, cold air only.
