Using Spirit Gum

 

This is the traditional glue used to attach facial hair and the lace front of wigs if it is required.  

Attaching Facial Hair:


1. Clean the area where the facial hair is to be applied with 99% alcohol.

2. Once the area is free of any excess skin oil or makeup apply a thin layer of spirit gum to this area.   Use very sparingly with a dabbing motion rather than painting it on.

3. Allow the gum to become slightly tacky before placing your facial hair

4. Pat the facial hair piece until it feels secure and let dry.


For a lace front wig:


Clean the area where you want to tack down the lace (usually the temples) and proceed as in the previous steps.

Remember most lace front wigs do not need this extra step, correct placing and pinning should make the piece feel secure enough. Always use the spirit gum sparingly.

Removal:



Always proceed gently when removing pieces.  Using a brush with topsol solvent or 99% alcohol, dab at the area where the spirit gum was placed and gently pull away from the skin. Always clean your pieces before re-applying by pacing on a paper towel and dabbing at the gum to dissolve the glue. Never use anything but approved cleansers or 99%alcohol for this process.
