The Role of Hair System Adhesives

Adhesives are the unsung heroes of hair systems, providing the crucial link between the scalp and man hair system. Choosing the right adhesive is pivotal for a natural look and feel, as well as for the comfort and durability of the hair system.

Liquid Adhesives: The Long-Term Bond

Liquid adhesives are applied directly to the scalp or the base of the hair system in a thin layer. The key is to wait for the adhesive to become tacky before positioning the hair system onto the scalp. This method requires a steady hand and patience to ensure a secure, even bond. We offer 2 types of liquid adhesive for men’s hair systems, the Ghost Bond and Walkers Ultra hold glue for sale in our online store or our store in Benalmadena.

For those leading an active lifestyle, particularly in the vibrant towns of Fuengirola and Benalmadena, the durability of liquid adhesives is unmatched. They offer a stronghold that can withstand rigorous activities, swimming, and the general wear and tear of daily life.

The removal process can be more involved, requiring a good quality solvent remover. There's also a learning curve to applying liquid adhesives neatly and efficiently, which may deter first-time users.

Tape Adhesives: Convenience and Comfort

Tape adhesives are simpler to use, often coming in pre-cut strips that you apply to the perimeter of the hair system or directly on the scalp. Once the protective layer is peeled off, the system can be pressed onto the scalp, ensuring an instant bond without the wait time for drying. If you are looking to buy we recommend the Walkers Ultra Hold Tape.

Tape adhesives are perfect for those in the communities of Mijas or Torremolinos looking for a balance between security and ease of use. They allow for quick adjustments and are ideal for those who prefer to remove their hair system regularly for cleaning or sleeping.

While tape offers a stronghold, it may not last as long as liquid adhesives, necessitating more frequent changes, especially during the hot summer months of the Costa del Sol.

Navigating Hair System Removers for Man Hair Systems

The choice of remover is as crucial as the adhesive itself, ensuring that you can safely and comfortably remove your man hair system without damaging your skin or the hairpiece.

Solvent Removers: Efficient and Effective

Applying solvent remover involves gently dabbing the product around the edges of the hair system and allowing it to penetrate the adhesive. After a few minutes, the bond loosens, allowing the system to be carefully lifted from the scalp. It's important to use a soft cloth or brush to gently remove any residual adhesive from both the scalp and the hair system. We recommend the Walker C-22 Remover.

Solvent removers are highly effective at breaking down strong adhesive bonds, making them a go-to choice for those who use liquid adhesives. They ensure a clean removal process, vital for maintaining the integrity of the man hair system.

The strength of solvent removers means they can be harsh on sensitive skin. It's essential to choose a remover formulated for sensitive scalps, especially for individuals in sunny areas like Marbella, where the skin may already be exposed to harsh elements.

Oil-Based Removers: Gentle and Nourishing

Oil-based removers are applied similarly to solvents but may require a bit more time to effectively dissolve the adhesive. Massaging the oil into the adhesive helps facilitate the removal process, and additional applications might be necessary for stronger adhesives. The Sunshine Tape is a good option for this kind of remover.

These removers are particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or concerns about harsh chemicals. They not only assist in adhesive removal but also condition the scalp and any remaining hair, providing a soothing effect after the removal process.

The gentler nature of oil-based removers means they might struggle with the most robust adhesives, potentially leading to a longer removal process. Additionally, they can leave an oily residue that requires thorough cleaning.

The Essentials of Hair System Cleaning

Maintaining a hair system involves regular cleaning to remove buildup and ensure the hair looks natural and vibrant. Specialized cleaning products are designed to gently cleanse without damaging the hair fibers or adhesive areas.

Specialized Shampoos and Conditioners

Cleaning a hair system with specialized shampoos and conditioners involves gently lathering the hairpiece in a basin of lukewarm water, carefully avoiding vigorous rubbing that could tangle or damage the hair. After a thorough rinse, a conditioner can be applied to add softness and manageability. The Bond Braker Shampoo is a very good option.

These products are specifically formulated to clean without stripping away the color or causing the hair to become brittle, which is essential for the longevity of the hair system. They're a must-have for anyone wanting to maintain a natural appearance, from the laid-back lifestyle of Fuengirola to the glamour of Marbella.

The main challenge is ensuring that you're using products suited to your specific type of hair system, as some formulations may be better suited to synthetic fibers. In contrast, others are intended for human hair.

Scalp and Hair Protection: The Final Frontier

Protecting your scalp and the hair system from environmental damage, such as UV exposure, is crucial for long-term comfort and aesthetic appeal.

Scalp Protectors

Scalp protectors are applied to the scalp before the adhesive, forming a protective barrier that can help prevent irritation from adhesives and prolong the bond. This step is particularly important for individuals in the sunny, outdoor-focused regions of Costa del Sol. If you need a professional scalp protector use the Walker Tape.

Besides protecting the scalp, these products can enhance the adhesive's grip, providing a more secure hold that's beneficial for active lifestyles.

Incorporating scalp protectors into your routine adds an additional step, which might be seen as a hassle by some. However, the benefits far outweigh the slight increase in preparation time.

UV Protectors

UV protectors are sprayed or applied to the hair system, shielding it from the sun's harmful rays. This preventative measure helps maintain the color and condition of the hair, ensuring it continues to look natural over time.

In regions like Costa del Sol, where the sun is a constant companion, UV protectors are essential for preventing fade and keeping the hair system looking as natural as the day it was fitted.

Regular application is necessary, especially during the summer months, which can be seen as an inconvenience. However, the effort is minimal compared to the benefit of maintaining a vibrant, natural-looking hair system.

Hair System is a Personal Journey of Transformation

To bring these insights to life, let's share the story of José, a Benalmadena resident who discovered the transformative power of a well-maintained hair system. José was initially skeptical about the idea of a hair system, fearing it would look unnatural or require excessive maintenance. However, after visiting IMH Studio, he was guided through the selection of the perfect hair system and educated on the best products for installation, maintenance, and care. Today, José walks the streets of Benalmadena with newfound confidence, his hair system a testament to the possibilities that await those willing to embrace this life-changing solution.

Embracing a hair system is more than just addressing hair loss; it's about restoring confidence and enjoying life to its fullest. With the right products and care, men across Costa del Sol, from Malaga to Marbella, can experience the transformative impact of a hair system that looks and feels as natural as their original hair.
