Or maybe you're used to tape but want to try something new. You did some research, looked at the pros and cons, and finally decided to try a liquid adhesive. how did you do it?
Don't worry! We created this beginner's guide for all newbies who are new to wig liquid adhesives. We'll walk you through the process step-by-step.

Before installing your hair system, you need to make sure you have the right liquid adhesive for your needs. Once you've decided which one is best for you, then you're ready to go.

How to Secure the Hair System with Liquid Adhesives
1.Clip your hair out of the way. 
This will give you a clear view of your hairline and keep things from getting messy.

2. Prepare your skin.
Remember that you will be dealing with liquid adhesive, so this is very, very important. We cannot stress this enough, prepping your skin is key. That's it:
Make sure the skin around the hairline is clean
Apply scalp protectant, a liquid adhesive used to coat the hair system. A scalp protector protects your skin from irritation that the glue can cause. They also improve firmness, which is always an advantage.

3. Apply the replacement hairpiece liquid adhesive
Now that your skin is ready, it's time to apply the glue. Apply a thin layer to your hairline and the rest of your scalp, let it dry for a few minutes, then tap your fingers to make sure it's ready. If it feels sticky rather than wet, you're good to go.

4. Glue your hair system in place
Time to put on your hair system. Getting the hair system in place can be a little daunting, and as we said before, we're here to walk you through the process and make it as easy as possible. Keep in mind that it may take a few tries before you master the art of placing your hair system perfectly. Practice and patience are your new best friends.

Needless to say, you should make it look as natural as possible, and the perfect way to do that is to keep your hairline in mind. The trick is to put your wig in the front, on your natural hairline, then roll it back and move it until you feel it fits. You can press down on the liquid wig adhesive with your fingers, or you can use a comb to be more precise.

Once your hair system is in place, run your fingers across the edges to check if you've missed anything. If you do, don't panic, just lift the section as high as you can and apply liquid adhesive to the area.

If you still feel that other areas could use some extra wig adhesive, feel free to apply more; keep in mind that not all hair systems are the same. Keep your wig liquid adhesive handy for touch-ups and to remove any glue residue that may remain.

5. Let your hair system adhesive dry
It's completely normal for your hair system to look a little off when you're done, but don't worry, let the adhesive dry properly for a few minutes, then you can brush it and style your human hair system as desired.

All is well! You are ready to go out and face the world.
