Wearing your beautiful lace front with was a nice experience and even having it attached was not such a bad process. But what happens when you want to remove your weave?

  • paper towels
6 Steps To Taking The Adhesive Out Of Your Lace Front Wig
This process can take about an hour to finish all sections so take your time. Certain glues and heavier applications can take longer to dissolve. Remember your wig has to be treated gentle to prevent damage.
  1. Comb your wig out first place the hair in one large braid.
  2. Put 100% pure acetone into medium size bowl.
  3. Soak only lace and adhesive  of one section for 8-10 minutes.
  4. Remove any remainder of glue off with your fingertips.
  5. Repeat for next section until done.
  6. After glue removal is done wash lace wig.
If you see any whiteness on your lace wig it is only the dryness from the acetone and will be moved after the lace wig is shampooed. You can remove any lose glue by rubbing outward with paper towels. The adhesive will roll right off.

Some methods seem strange but may be what works when nothing else does. Remember on method does not work for all. There are different types of glues, tapes and lace materials that have to be considered. Look below.
