3M TRANSPORE ONE SIDED TAPE FOR REPAIRING UNITS OR USED AS A BASE

Use this tape on your poly as a base, then you would apply the tape you normally would use to hold the unit. When you want to remove, pull the transpore tape off the base and it come off easily.

Base Tape is not designed to be the only adhesive used on a unit. It’s a single sided tape to be used between the unit and the more aggressive two-sided tape. This makes it possible for you to use stronger tape on a delicate unit. It is semi-flexible, tears easily by hand, and has a dull finish. It can also be used to temporarily repair damaged units.

This new adhesive formula absorbs light, avoids reflection and requires less product to give you a great hold that no one else will notice. Ghost Bond Platinum is free of harmful chemicals and is 100% safe for your skin

The Platinum line of liquid adhesives stands up to oily scalps, heavy perspiration and high humidity with a reinvigorated formula that provides four to five weeks of reliable hold time.

Ghost Bond Platinum is formulated to absorb light, providing an undetectable front hair line in the most vulnerable situations. It has a higher "melting" point than other Ghost Bond liquid adhesives, so it can withstand heat and perspiration longer before the bond is compromised. Ghost Bond Platinum can be used safely on both lace and poly systems, and its water-based formula is safe for your skin!

DO NOT APPLY TO YOUR HAIR LINE!!!!!! Just apply a thin amount and let dry until its tacky then apply a second thin coat and place your lace in place. Use a blow dryer if you can to help secure and dry. Be sure to use it on cool. DO NOT APPLY SUPER THICK COATS .TO REMOVE Use Ghost buster remover.

If bonding a skin/polyurethane unit, apply one thin coat to the base. This should always be completed before you start applying Ghost Bond Platinum to the scalp

Apply 4 thin coats of Ghost Bond Platinum to the client's scalp, keeping the same quantity of adhesive to each coat. Allow roughly 20 seconds in between each coat to dry.

Once the 4th coat is complete, wait 5 minutes for Ghost Bond Platinum to completely cure. The recommended cleaner to remove Ghost Bond Platinum from the scalp is Ultra-Safe, all natural adhesive remover. To remove Ghost Bond Platinum from the hair unit please use Ghost Buster.

Firstly consider how long you will wear your hair system, what sort of climate you live in; humid, dry, hot or cold? What sort of lifestyle you have, do you swim, go to the gym, sit under air conditioning all day? Do you sweat or have a sensitive scalp? Once you have the answers to these questions you will be on your way to working out which adhesive is best for you.

Each hair system adhesive responds to weather and certain climates differently, so bear in mind your lifestyle to best understand the kind of adhesive that you need for optimum results. For example, swimmers and athletes may require a waterproof adhesive, as moisture may compromise the integrity of the hair system hold. Sun and humidity not only do damage to the hair system but also may affect the adhesive. Bacteria can be a major issue for hair system wearers, especially in high humidity and the scalp becomes sweaty. Look for adhesives with an anti-microbial formulation that will ensure you feel cool and comfortable, and consider No Sweat or scalp protector.

One of the most frequently asked questions is “Which hair tape is best for me?”

It depends on many circumstances such as your lifestyle, how long you wear your hair system, climate, scalp condition and a raft of others in-between. However, the main criteria for choosing your hair tape is to decide the length of time you want to wear your hair system and this will determine whether you need a short, medium or extended wear tape.

Oily skin: if you have very oily skin, chances are that any tape will break down much faster. For example, a four-week tape might only last you three days! Some tapes might not necessarily be designed for oily skin, but are known to work well such as Ultra Hold and Supertape

Sensitive skin: if you know yourself to have sensitive scalp skin or are having a reaction to another adhesive, you may want to consider tapes which are manufactured to medical grade or hypoallergenic standards. Good examples of these tapes are 3M Medical Tapes.

Shine free: if you wear a light density hair system or you want to bond to a delicate lace base then choose a tape designed to have no or low shine such as No Shine or Lace Front Support (also known as Blue Liner)

Another consideration is what type of hair system you wear. It is highly recommended that you use Sensi-Tak Red Liner directly on poly edges or traditional skin bases prior to attaching your extended-wear tape to your hair system base.

Sensi-Tak (also known as Red Liner) tape is clear with a disposable red liner. It will securely adhere to the poly, but greatly diminish the amount of time and effort needed to clean the base since it doesn’t break down like an extended-wear tape. Red liner tape will not compromise the length of your bond provided you use a second extended-wear tape on top of it to attach to your scalp.

Hair tapes come in various sizes, widths and strips. Contour tape strips are mostly commonly used at the front hairline or back of the hair system.

Tapes also come in rolls that vary in both length and width. The rolls allow you to customize the area of your hair system that is taped – they also allow you to purchase a hairpiece tape that will fit the exact width of your polyurethane perimeter. Rolls of hairpiece tape normally sell in widths of 3/4″ and 1″ and in lengths of 3 yards or 12 yards so you will have plenty to work with before you run out and need to re-order You're Lookin Good - hairtape.com
