How to remove wig glue?

Items you need to prepare in advance: 

Wig glue remover

Cotton balls

A mild shampoo

Hair conditioner

A wide-tooth comb

A wig stand

A soft towel

Step 1: Pull all the wig hair back and make a ponytail to expose the edges of the wig.

Step 2: Douse some cotton balls with glue remover and rub gently into your lace sheer along the edges of the human hair wig to soften the wig glue.

Step 3: Let the wig remover sit for about 3-5 minutes. And then gently peel off the lace sheer. If you feel hard to peel it off, apply more wig glue remover into the lace. 

Step 4: Tug gently to remove the wig from your head bit by bit.

Step 5: Remove the wig cap.

Step 6: Spray some glue remover along your hairline to remove glue residue from your natural hair. Shampoo your natural hair and blow it dry at the lowest heat setting. 

Step 7: Turn your lace wig inside out. Put it into a sink and rinse out the residue glue on the lace sheer with rinse water. Apply a little quantity of shampoo and rub the wig gently. Rinse out the residue glue under the tap water.

Step 8: Apply a few pumps of shampoo to the wig and rug the wig gently with your finger. Rinse out the shampoo. Wrap the wig with a soft towel to absorb the excess water. Take out the wig again and apply some hair conditioner to the wig to moisturize the wig, let the hair conditioner sit for about 3-5 minutes. And then rinse out the hair conditioner thoroughly under running water. Absorb the excess water off the wig with the soft towel again.

Step 9: Store your wig in a wig stand and let it air dry or blow it dry at the lowest heat setting. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the wig.

Alternatives of wig glue remover:

If you didn't have any wig glue remover at home, the following items can also be available to work as alternatives. 

  • DIY lace glue remover: warm water mixture

Mix a small amount of salt and soda (olive oil) in warm water and blend them evenly. Spray the mixture along the edges of the wig and put on a wig cap for about 5-10 minutes. After successfully removing the wig, rinse out the residue thoroughly from your natural hair and the wig.

  • Vaseline 

Vaseline is not only a skincare product but also an effective glue remover. Simply apply some Vaseline into your lace sheer and keep it sitting for several minutes. The Vaseline can also dissolve the glue.

  • Hair oils/ skincare oil

Some emollient oil, such as hair oil and skincare oil can also dissolve the wig glue and are gentle options to remove a lace wig. Similar to the Vaseline, you just need to apply the emollient oil onto the glued-down lace sheer and keep it for a few minutes, Then use a soaked towel to remove the oil and repeat this step several times until you can easily peel off the lace sheer and remove the wig.

We're sure that following the above tutorial can help to remove your wig glue safely and effectively with no damage to the lace wig or your natural hair. If you still feel confused about how to remove lace glue, feel free to reach our consultants.
