eta:  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. However, because there are pros and cons to each vendor.  It is best to do a Search ( Search%20The%20ForumSearch) on the vendor to help you make your decision.   It is best to email the vendor for a price list.  Sometimes posts get overlooked because the question has been asked many times and the information can be searched rather easily.  Good Luck with your research and success on finding the perfect lf!

For video clips of Basic Tape Application and How To Cut The Lace please visit:  http://www.invisiwig.com/TapeApplication.asp

Here is a link to a great site with unique products such as Knot bleaching kits.. ColorBlock to block color from getting onto the lace.. lace thread for tears in lace just to name a few!  She's a super lady and extremely knowledgeable of hair products for wig wearers!  Her name is Debbie and I believe she has international shipping too!

Version 3
This version instructs you on how to remove specifically Spirit Gum adhesive
This adhesive is good for applications that you want to last one day
 
Your lace front wig checklist
This list of items are basic necessities  that you probably won’t find at your local Beauty Supply Store (BSS) for applying your lace front wig:
You will need to order these items after you place your wig order so that you have everything you need to start the application process.
 
1.  Adhesive and  Adhesive Removers
You probably want to try a few different types of adhesives, this way you will know what works best for you
Below is a wonderful link that discusses the pros and cons of the various types of adhesives.  Do your homework and
go through this thread carefully.
 
 
Here is a post that explains how to apply Holister Medical Adhesive:
 
Here is a link where a BHM member has offered information and tests on picture of different adhesives applied:
 
Places to order your adhesives from:
 
 
Here is a convenient link to a site where you can buy a sample of a lot of different products and see what you really prefer:
 
Read this helpful thread on removing adhesive:
 
 
There are a lot more places to get adhesives from and the are listed through the post listed above.
 
2.      Knot Sealer
The purpose of  knot sealer  is to apply it to your lace so that your lace won’t shed so badly when you manipulate your unit.
On our discussion board these are popular choices.
 
3M 77 (can be purchased at an office supply store.)
Knot Sealer (can be purchased at  http://www.KeyasKreations.com )
Clear Acrylic Sealer (can be purchased at http://www.elitelace.com/store/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=92)
                                 (Also can be purchased at any Micheal’s Craft store)
 
Don’t forget to view the video mentioned in the video learning section on sealing knots
 
3.  Fray Block
Fray Block is to be put on the lace, not to much though, it prevents the lace shedding and makes your unit last longer.
You can get this product at your local Wal-Mart, or any fabric store.
Online you get this product on ebay  as well as  Hanbig sausages Online at http://www.hanbig sausagefabrics.com/product/37813.html
 
Here are some discussions on Fray Block:
 
 
Here is  a related discussion about dyeing your lace with Ritz Cocoa Brown Dye :
 
4.       A wig head or mannequin
You will need to put your unit on this when you are not wearing it.
 These can be purchased at most beauty supply stores and are sold online as well.
 
5.      Wig cap
This item is a matter of your needs. A light colored wig cap underneath your lakefront will give the illusion of a scalp.  If you prefer to go bald
under your lace front you may not need a wig cap.
 
Here is a good discussion on wig caps:
 
Here is  a related discussion about dyeing your lace with Ritz Cocoa Brown Dye :
 
Here is a related post about creating a realistic looking scalp:
 
6.      Scalp Prep
The purpose of scalp prep is to protect your skin from the adhesives that you will be applying.
You can purchase scalp prep or some people use liquid bandage. It is a personal preference.
 
Here is a discussion on scalp prep:
 
 
Here are some places I have seen that sell the scalp prep:
 (go to the shop accessories link on the left)
 
 
The following are items that you will need that can be purchased from your local Wal-Mart, Wal-Greens, etc….
 
91% Alcohol
Witch Hazel, Sea Breeze (Some sort of Astringent that will remove oil)
Makeup Sponge
Pinking Shears (Too cut lace)
Spray Bottles
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (mix with Alcohol to remove clumps)
100% Acetone (for cleaning lace)
Banana Clips
Nail Brush
Baby Oil (Some say it is as good as lace release)

This is an informational thread only please don't post on this thread..
 
for those that are attempting to grow out your natural hair while wearing a lacefront, here's some important information to take care of your natural hair while you wear your unit:
 
i do have lots of information on hair growth to share with you and the others on the board.. i did intensive research visiting hair boards, research natural products etc..  prior to wearing my lfs' b/c i wanted to get my hair in the best condition i could.. i've had amazing growth since wearing them, and will continue to do so..i wanted to eliminate heat, chemicals and daily manipulation to get my hair in shape but you gotta understand what to do to get it healthy.
 
its always a good place to start with aphogee protein treatment to stop shedding and breaking..i believe this information will help sort out the breakage issues and give some useful background information so that you can get a better sense of the direction on how you should go about with product and technique..

understanding the difference between breakage and shedding is an important part of any healthy hair regimen...many people use these terms interchangeably to refer to any hair that falls from the head. In its true sense, shed hair is hair that has reached the end of its growing cycle and naturally falls from the scalp along with its root attached...the root is a tiny white bulb on the scalp originating end...if a hair does not possess this white bulb, then it is not a naturally shed hair rather, a broken one...shed hair tends to be longer in length than broken hairs, which are generally short pieces of varying lengths...if you are one that have stretched your relaxer for a great number of weeks, your shed hair will have the curly new growth present on the area next to the scalp, and you will be able to see where the relaxed hair begins...some find that garlic shampoos or products with garlic extracts help curb shedding. But remember, shedding is a natural, internal process and may not respond to topical, external treatments...so don't be alarmed if nothing works for you..changes in diet, hormone imbalances, birth control pills, and pregnancy can also affect the rate at which hair is shed...

breakage on the other hand is not natural, and is an indication of an imbalance of important forces within the hair strand..broken hairs do not fall naturally from the head, but are typically a sign of mishandling or abuse...the proper treatments, will help stop breakage in its tracks.. p
rotein is what gives the hair its strength and structure...hair is about 70% keratin protein by nature...protein is found most prevalently in products like instant conditioners (bargain brands like Suave and V05), leave in conditioners, protein conditioner treatments, and even some moisturizers...

moisturizers are products that are water-based and nourish your hair deep within the strand...water is the ultimate moisturizer so water based products are best for really getting the best moisture benefit..products with moisturizing properties tend to be your conditioners and other water-based products...moisturizers may also be protein based, but these protein based moisturizers do not have the moisturizing benefit that moisture based moisturizers have...a good moisturizers will not contain ingredients like petrolatum, mineral oil, or lanolin..these are cheap product fillers... be wary of products that claim moisturizing benefits and contain these ingredients...there is nothing moisturizing about them.. petrolatum and mineral oil are sealants and have the potential to suffocate the hair and scalp and seal out the moisture it needs..the moisture you apply needs to be held in by something, which is oil...its called sealing the moisture in..
 
a light coating of oil on top will help seal the moisture inside...oils are made of large molecules...these molecules are too large to absorb by the hair strand...applying oils to the hair and scalp will coat them and trap moisture that is inside on the inside and moisture that is outside on the outside..the key is to lock in the moisture within the strands with your oil..if you use oils without a moisturizer or before one, the oil will seal the moisture out of the hair strand and lead to eventual dryness...(this is what i do after all my hair treatments and heating cap to deepen the moisturizer, then i use other products to moisturize and then seal the moisture with oil b4 i begin to braid my hair back up to reapply my unit..)

Wet or Dry) Stretches slightly/returns to original length /no breaking= you are balanced just stick with maintaining!
(Wet to Dry) Stretching a little more than normal then breaks= more protein

(Wet or Dry)Stretching, stretching, stretching/no breakage yet= more protein

(Wet)- Weak, gummy, mushy, limp hair= more protein

(Wet or Dry) Very little/no stretching then breakage= more moisture

(Dry) Rough/tough/hard/tangle/brittle hair= more moisture


Unsure= err on the side of moisture

here is the product breakdown...this list is by no means the only products available, but its a good start..it'll help you see which side you've been leaning on product wise and which side you need to incorporate products to achieve your balance..i've included strength indicators for most of the protein products..

THIS thread this is an information thread only, so PLEASE don't post. Thanks
 
Silicon Intense Treatment Mix is restoring old lf units and maybe removing the need for the bleach bath or as a preventive measure to avoid tangling units. I am working on finding a comparable product that will work with the silicon mix or just for lf's so that we can have a long life span with proper care of the hair.
