What do we need Toupee Tapes for?
Toupee tape is used to attach hairpieces and wigs. There are different double backed tapes for different uses. They are colored so we can recognize which tape is for which application but when applied they are all clear. They are sold in rolls or strips which is a personal preference to which one you prefer.
A couple things to note:
1.It is important to always clean your scalp and prepare the surface for applying your wig, hairpiece or toupee.
2.It mean seem after the shower that the tape is weakening from the steam of the shower.As your skin dries up the bond will harden.
3. Everyone is different and the tape may last longer on some more than others depending on the skin’s oil and environment issues.
4. It’s always a good idea to test a small piece of tape on your skin before applying for an extended time in case of allergies.
