Removing Effectively your Hair System Without Damaging it

1Removing effectively your hair system without damaging it

Taking your hair system off is simple, but if you don’t know the right steps to take, it can be tricky. Parts of the hair system are delicate and you could risk tearing or damaging the unit. This is especially true for individuals still in the the stone ages of hair replacement and buy from men's hair clubs or expensive retail salons.

Sadly, stylists don’t always provide clients with enough education to maintain their hair replacement systems with the proper care. Of course, that doesn't mean you can't learn to do it on your own.

If you’re looking for an easy and SAFE way to remove your hairpiece or toupee, we can help. Follow the instructions below to reduce agitation and minimize the potential for damages to your scalp and hair replacement system.

Things you may need

  • Adjust A bond by Pro Touch
  • Towel paper material

2.1Step 1

Applying adhesive remover

Begin by using the spray-on or dab-on adhesive remover and apply it directly to the area of your hair system secured to your scalp.

Before continuing to the next step, allow the solvent enough time to soak in. A few minutes should be sufficient enough to break the bond for easy removal.

2.2 Step 2

Begin peeling hair system from the back

In order to avoid damaging your front hairline, we recommend always removing your hair system from back to front. Start by using the tips of your finger to find the  back edge of the unit.


2.3 Step 3

Lifting the hair system

Once you’ve located the back edge, gently scrape across it with your fingernail. Peel up enough of the base so you can grab it tightly with your fingers.

While peeling your hair system off from the back, use your makeup pad (pre-soaked with Adjust A-Bond), to go between the bottom of the base and your scalp. This will help break down the adhesive and make the unit easier to peel off.

Using a spray remover? Spray a light mist directly between the base and your scalp while continuing to peel up the unit. After it's separated by a few inches, stop and spray more adhesive remover.

Using a dab-on remover? Either use the dab-on applicator or soak a liberal amount of adhesive remover on the tip of a white paper towel. While peeling up the unit, swipe the applicator or paper towel across the bottom where it is attached to your scalp to loosen the hair system.

Whatever method you choose, simply continue peeling a few inches at a time until your hair system is completely off.
