In addition, a perfect wig removal procedure protects your scalp, hairline, and edges from harm.

However, even if you've removed your wig a few times without causing harm, read this article to ensure your procedure is the right one.
The step by step procedure on how to uninstall your human hair lace wig
Pack your 360 wig into a ponytail if you're using a long human hair lace wig so you can see your edges.
Use bobby pins or clips to keep the wig sides away from your face and fasten it on top of your head with short wigs.
To loosen the glue around the edges of your human hair wig, soak a washcloth in adhesive remover liquid or lace wig remover and gently work it into the lace seams.
Let the glue sink on the lace seam for three minutes or until the lace begins to tear away from the sides.
To remove the lace from the scalp, slowly peel it away from the edges by sliding around the sides. To avoid harming areas with set glue, apply extra adhesive as you remove it.
Gently tug at the wig, removing small sections at a time until the human lace wig is removed from your head.
Once you've successfully removed the wig to reveal your hairline, remove and discard your wig cap.
To prepare the wig for cleaning, wet the wig's edge. Then, with your hands full of human hair wig shampoo, apply it to the lace edges. Rinse thoroughly to get rid of any leftover adhesive.
To remove excess glue from your hairline, spray some more adhesive removal solutions on your margins.
Wash and condition your wig before letting it air dry on a wig stand.
To prepare your human hair wig for your subsequent use, style it as desired.

An in-depth guide to removing your human hair wig
1: Prepare your lace human hair wig for removal
- For long length wigs
Tie the human wig into a ponytail to get a clear view and avoid adhesive removal on the wig fibers.
- For short length wigs
To give you a good view of the lace seam and avoid the glue remover from hurting the wig fibers, use bobby pins to pull hair strands up away from the edges.
2: Apply liquid adhesive remover
Apply adhesive remover on a washcloth, q-tip, or cosmetics brush.
To weaken the adhesive that holds the wig in place, gently dampen the edges of your lace seam with the soaks washcloth. Make sure to cover the front and back hairlines, as well as any tight areas, with more remover.
Allow 1 to 2 minutes for the adhesive remover to seep into the lace until you see the lace seam breaking apart at the edges. Because alcohol-based adhesives dry quickly, you must work faster when applying it to the lace seams. If you use isopropyl alcohol, the same rules apply.
If you have sensitive skin, avoid using an alcohol-based adhesive remover because it can harm the area around your forehead. Instead, use an oil-based adhesive removal solvent.
3: Peel off the lace
Begin to pull the lace seam off gently at the edges until all edges have been removed.
- To avoid hurting your hair and the wig strands, gently remove the lace from your baby hairs without pulling.
- Remove the lace seams from front to back to avoid the hairline from expanding into the lace.
- Spray remover under the lace at intervals to soften challenging adhesive places while removing.
- If the glue appears to have come undone, you may want to remove the wig in one rapid motion. If you don't do this, you'll wind up pulling your hair out if you miss some regions with adhesive.
4: Remove the wig tape from your hairline
Once the edges have been removed, peel the wig tape away from the base by the sides, then take the wig off while spraying solvent under the lace.
Section by part, gently remove the wig. If you encounter any resistance, dab more adhesive remover on it until the wig is completely removed.
5: Remove wig cap
Remove the wig cap and dispose of it.
- Wig caps should never be worn again. For each human hair wig installation procedure, use a new wig cap.
- You may easily purchase wig caps from a hairdresser or a hair product store.
6: Clean the remainder of the glue on your lace
Place the human hair lace wig's edges under running water and carefully rub with your fingertips to remove excess adhesive.
- Use a handheld mirror to rub the inside of your wig to remove sticky glue on the lace easily.
- Removing leftover glue will aid the lace wig in adhering correctly the next time you wish to put it on.
7: Remove glue on your skin or hair
To avoid allergic reactions, perform a skin test before applying adhesive remover to your skin (Suggested)
How to carry out a skin test
Apply a small amount of adhesive remover on the back of your palm and wait 24 to 48 hours to see whether you have any allergic reactions. If you notice unusual skin change, you should see a dermatologist. If not, go ahead and remove the adhesive from your hairline with the adhesive remover.
To remove any glue residue from your hair and scalp, use more adhesive remover on your hairline. Wig adhesive removers like C22 citrus solvent, lace-off wig remover, and African American lace wig removers frequently remove stubborn glues from lace wigs and skin. Olive oil can also be used to remove excess adhesive from your hair or skin.
