Why and How to Use Men Hair Piece Tape?
The men hair piece tape is often used to attach a toupee. To make you know more about hair tapes, we have made a comparison between liquid adhesives and tapes and introduced how to applied a hair system by using tapes.
A hair toupee cannot be applied to your head without adhesives or tapes. They are common instruments to fix the wig on your head. A good adhesive or tape can last for a pretty long time. Then, liquid adhesives and tapes, which is the better?
The liquid adhesive is stronger. The products have different bonding levels. The strongest one can be much more durable than the toupee tape. However, it may pose more harm to the skin and the hair system. Tapes can usually have a holding time of several weeks.
Both adhesives and tapes can produce a good-looking effect. Quality products can perfectly hide behind hairpieces without being detected. The color of liquid adhesives is white or clear and tapes are white or skin color.
Ease of use
Male hair system tapes are easier to use. It is hard to control the amount of liquid you pour down. Too much or too few glues all lead to bad results. If you use tapes, you can just cut some pieces of the proper size. Tapes are also easy to remove. While you need to use special removals to clean the adhesive residues.
The strong bonding effect of adhesive is the advantage but the disadvantage of it. The chemicals it contains may harm human skin. People with sensitive skin may even have adverse reactions. So when buying the product, you should take a careful look at its components.
Using liquid adhesives or tapes depends on personal preferences. However, if you just start using hair replacement and want to apply it on your own, we recommend the men hair piece tape.
The advantages of toupee tape
One of the advantages we have mentioned above. That is, it is easy to apply and remove. Another good point is that many tapes are waterproof. Many people may worry that tapes do not have the same water-resistant function as glues. But in fact, many tapes can well prevent water or sweat from penetrating the hair unit. Even you exercise fiercely and sweat a lot or walk on a rainy day, the tape will not lose its adhesiveness.
