    Posted: Aug 31 2008 at 2:50am
Ok so after almost 3 years of wanting a lace front and marveling at the
skills of you ladies on this board, I finally got my first lacefront wig.
I wanted to get synthetic since it was cute, cheap and if I messed up completely, I wouldn't be out of a whole car note.
So anyways, I did a really good job of trimming the lace up etc. but
I used a glue called "Mighty Tight" and I used a thin layer and a half I guess. Well somehow the very edges of the lace were stuck down but the lace was lifted up near the hairline sort of like a bubble:(
I know that may be hard to understand but I didnt have my camera.
Anyways, I used some isopryl alcohol and got the lace to come up completely. I'm ready to try again but my forehead is tacky and sticky and
when I hugged my fiance' my head got stuck to his tshirt which he thought was hilarious!
I'm gonna go to the BS store and get some solvent but I need a few tips on how to remove the rest of the glue off my head.
Once I get the app right, I'm gonna post pics.
Any tips or advice would be helpful ladies.
Love ya! Thanks!

LOL I'm sorry i had to laugh because it has happened to me also. I have also woke up stuck to the bed linen. LOL What helped me was using the 91% alcohol and goo gone. Wiped down with both of those and it did the trick. Hope this helps!

Use 91 or 99% alcohol to remove the rest of the glue off your head.  If you have goo gone, use a little bit of that too.   When I haven't had either of these, I've used dawn dish detergent and it worked like a charm

Good luck

I had to laugh too girl! That's a good one. Hee hee! (still laughing)
 
I say try the Goo Gone or the C22 and make sure you use a SMALL amount of glue. I little bit goes a long way!

OMG!! Favored1 you are a genius!

I broke out the diswashing liquid that said, "super degreaser" and went to town with a cloth!! Its ALL Gone! even the little boogers!

wow!

Ok so now I think I need to chill for a sec before trying again. Luckily I didnt get any glue stuck in the lace. I'm gonna go watch some youtube vids to get the layer of glue thing right. Thanks babies!

Glad it worked for you.  Give your skin a chance to rest b4 applying again. If you have glue still on the lace, use the same detergent to remove it.  

Use thin layers of adhesives making sure to smooth it around the perimeter if this is a full lace.   What are you applying your adhesive with?

i bought a small brush that is intended for concealer but I think i was a bit too sloppy. What i dont get is how to lay the lace on the glue.
Do I need to use the end of a rattail comb to smooth it down? and if so, how long to I need to wait before doing that?
 This is a lace front by the way..no nape or anything.

Having a brush is good, but what I would do is cut the bristles at an angle so that you can smooth the adhesive better.  I find that an angle brush works better for me than a flat brush.

 I will pm you

I am checking out your magazine and I like it...great job

This is what I do"
 
Do everything slowly ... and precisely like you are performing surgery.
 
Make sure you wear plastic or latex gloves while you apply. This is because the oil in your skin will interact with the glue and make it white.
 
Put your unit on your head and position it so that it's in the right place
and pin the hair  back.
 

'Paint' the glue with a small brush in a thin strip all around the front of your head.
 
Wait about 15 minutes until you test the glue with the rat tail of your comb to see if it's tacky.
 
If so .. carefully and slowly pull the lace down on the glue. Use the comb part of a very thin toothed comb to press it in place.
 
Do this in sections.
 
Make sure you pin back your hair with bobby pins in advance or the hair will get stuck in the glue.
 
Tie the unit down for an hour or so...
 
You have to keep practicing. :))
