You seriously did that with just gel? Every time I try to use that gel it comes out really stiff and it looks flaky. Plus it's almost impossible to get the residue out of the lace :/ yours looks really good though
Yes mam, just gel and water. What I typically do is spread some gel onto the lace not my hairline and then position the wig how I would like. I tie it down by wrapping an ace medical bandage around my head and either leave it on over night or for about 20-30 maybe longer depending on what I end up doing while I wait for it to dry, sometimes time slips away and I forget. After I remove the bandage I take a damp towel and go over my edges to get all the hair that has become stiff, hard and stuck a loose and as well remove any and all flakes. But I make sure to be very careful and that the towel isn't too wet because then I might end up removing all the gel and my bond. And I usually get a week of great hold and then another week with touch ups. I always tie my hair up at night. Sometimes before I tie it up before bed I'll rewet the hairline and then tie it up. I try my best not to use too much gel. That's the only time I have issue with residue. I think because I'm using water and reusing gel that's already there I'm not getting build up. That and I never go over 2 weeks leaving it bonded on.
