If it is necessary and it is something that you must do- I would say be very careful. 
 
1. Never ever take down your glue-in without first saturating each and every weft with oil. 
 
2.  Don't yank the weft from the hair.  The wefts should be seperated with no effort at all.  If you have any resistance- STOP and add more oil, massage and wait.
 
3.  Do not wash your hair with glued wefts.  (this will cause you problems depending on the shampoo you use.)

I wouldn't recomment it... the track may be able to be removed with oil but the glue may be hard to get out of your hair without ripping it out.

funny, my hair grows with glue in's as opposed to sew ins.  I only left my glue in's in for about a week and a half and I let them kinda slip out on its own.  And I never pulled them out, I always condition like crazy and use moisturizing shampoo during the first wash with the tracks still in. I scrub and scrub until the tracks loosen. I wash my hair with the tracks still in until the tracks literally slide out.  The glue slides out too with minimal shedding. 
 
With sew-ins, my hair seems to shed alot more after i remove my sew-ins.  But I will do nothingn but a sew-in if I'm wearing quality hair. HTH.

Do a quick weave with a stocking cap if you must use glue.  I have had many glue in weaves and I have never experienced hair loss.  The key is removal. Make sure you hair is super slick with baby oil, conditioner, weave removal and take  your time.  Never yank, tug  or pull out the tracks.  They should just slide out.

I agree with the suggestion to use a cap and do a quick weave. This way you avoid putting glue on your hair or scalp.

It's not, it's the removal process, the amount of glue you use and the frequent use.  To reiterate what the last few members said, you have to be careful with the removal process. Sweat breaks down the glue mostly in the temple/hairline area and many ladies just re-glue this part because the install is still fresh.  This causes excess glue build up in the most fragile/thinnest part of your head and when you comb the glue out, your hair will come out with it.

I have seen some ugly damage with glue in weaves but at the same time, I have seen hair thrive with the install.  I would suggest the cap weave if at all possible and use some type of protectant with it (neck strips, end wraps, shower cap) because the cap alone will not protect your hair from the glue.  This will usually turn into a removable stocking cap weave (wig) but it's better health wise for your hair.

Don't use the glue on your hair.  If you need a quick alternative weave for cheap, why don't you just get a quick weave/half wig or something?  They work great and look nice too.  They also protect your tresses from stress.  I rock half wigs all the time when I am pressed for cash and need my hair done.  Try it.  They work.Sleepy

Glue rips your hair out.  It dries your hair out and the your install will last about 2 weeks, three weeks top, if you don't work out.  If you do work out, your glue will get really sticky!

DON'T put glue near your hairline.....it reeks havoc on the hairline!!!!  Bald spots and plugs out and a mess!  HTH

Has anyone tried Liquid Gold and has these same problems (loss of hair, sticky, won't last long). I remember few years ago when we first learned of LGold, it was the cats pajamas for glue ins and the ladies said they could wash daily with it in. Any input?
