I had been researching lacefronts, application techniques and products since Nov of 2005. I kept waiting to get approved so that I could get access and that never happened until recently.

Now I'm able to share my research with all the LF newbies. Here are some links and commentaries on various aspects of the LF craze.
 
Topic Link/Note
Lace French lace is stronger than Swiss lace...however Swiss lace is less detectable however it is very delicate and easily torn... I'd stick with French if you're a first time wearer...also French lace has a natural tint to it from my understanding...Swiss does not.
Density Select the medium density hair so that it won't be too thick!

Removing adhesive pure mineral spirits instead of alcohol for removing adhesive. Alcohol DRIES the heck out of everything, especially hair, and dryness is the main enemy of hair system hair.
Rest assured, mineral spirits is perfectly safe to come in contact with. It's really easy on the hair and breaks down the adhesive nicely. Best of all, it's CHEAP !

Remove shine soaked in and combed thru Quantum acid perm to knock out all waves and shine. The result was a more dulled down texture like fresh perm..sheen, not shine. http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=13966&KW=zigmarlee

Tape Euroflex Advent Hair double-sided. Doesn't require glue. When Using EuroFlex, place it ALMOST but not ALL THE WAY at the edge of the wig.  After a day, it EXPANDS. There are complaints about hold (weak)

I also collected reviews for the various lacefront's that have been purchased. You will notice some comments, I hope no one feels defunct if the comment on their LF isn't positive but this is all about objectivity and about helping the other ladies on the board make a good decision about their lacefront vendor(s). Also the comments are a combination of my own opinion and/or the general opinions that I gathered from everyone who commented on the units.
 
Some of the entries have no comments because there were no pictures.

Gee whiz!  Somebody needs to print that out, and make a lacefront bible!  "In the beginning was the lace front wig...." 
"The Laws of the Lacefront wig..."
"The board saw that it was good..."
