How to Remove Frontal Human Hair Wig?
Apply lace wig solvent remover. We have several glue removal products and highly recommend C-22 citrus solvent remover or Lace Off wig remover.
Let the African American lace wig remover dissolve into the lace and hair for about a minute.
Begin to slowly peel up the lace front of the wig and spray the remover or solvent under the lace.
After a minute or two, the lace will begin to release from the scalp.
Once the wig is removed, we suggest using a gentle wig shampoo and conditioner to wash the excess glue from the wig.
You can bath the lace wig in the sink or bowl of warm water.
The glue is now removed and your lace front wig is ready for the application.
