I don't know how others use gro protect....and I thought I was brainy with my usage of it with my wigs. NOTHING IS REALLY NEW under the sun.
This is what I do.
First, I leave out the section of my hair that I want to show. I wear lace fronts but I leave out at least an inch in the front of my hair to make it look more natural.
I just mold down my hair, with a little spritz, let it dry, then I add the gro protect, let it dry.
THen I just put on my wig when I'm ready with bobby pins.
What the gro protect does it....for ME....is...one I don't wear wig caps because my back was starting to thin from the rubbing. Even the daily use of pinning int he bobby pins can take a toll on your hair if your hair is thin by nature as mine.
At first I used to braid my hair but the "kitchen" area just would not stop thinning slowly. SO I took a break and started wearing tracks with gro protect. Then I Realized this can work with wigs also.
When my hair is molded with the gro protect, the hair is HARD as a rock, so when I attach the wig with hair pins...NONE of my hair comes out with the comes. I think this works so much better and you really don't have to MESS with your hair at all. No hair has come out on my bobby pins at all. IT was not a lot of hair before but I would seem to loose some hair because my hair was not gelled down.
I love it. To me, it makes it easier, no braiding of my hair, my hair seems to be growing more because I'm not touching it at all. I will always use gro protect. I also use it when I decide to put in bonded tracks and it does WORK.
