1. Clip all hair and baby-hair away from the edge of the closure, preventing hair from getting stuck in the bonding adhesive(s) when applying your lace closure.
2. Carefully trim the lace around the hairline of the lace closure. Cut all the lace off right up to the hairline.
3. Braid hair in small cornrows, or tightly wrap your hair head for a flat look.
4. Use alcohol 99% on a cotton pad and rub around entire hairline, removing any oil that may be on your skin.
5. Apply scalp protector to protect skin from adhesive.
6. Use a flesh tone wig cap to flatten and protect your natural hair. Be sure to line it up with your hairline to completely cover your own hair. The flesh tone wig cap will create a scalp illusion. You can allow the glue and/or tape to overlay onto the stocking cap, or loosely stitch the cap in place, to prevent the wig cap from slipping back.
7. Use hairline or a flat wooden cosmetic stick or a small make-up brush to apply a thin coat of the liquid adhesive (glue) around all the perimeter of yours.
8. Do not bond your lace closure to wet glue because it will not stick well.
9. Bond the closure starting at the center of your front hairline to make sure the lace closure is aligned properly. Press your closure down using after tooth comb from one side to the other.
10. Tie down your hairline with a silk or satin scarf when you have completed the application procedure. This will allow the glue to set and dry properly.
