@yurguardianangel did you stick with it, are you still wearing?

Currently not wearing since may.

Have chronic sinusitis and tension headaches now.

I don't know if I will be able to wear again,until that crap is gone.

The salon has my other 2 custom bespoke hair systems I paid for.

Trying again in october 2018.
If still causes me head pressure/headaches then will sadly wait till the new year after I seen the ENT specialists(could be months until I see them) I just don't know anymore.

It seems like you have issues with proper attachment and removal.

I don't know what glues or tapes you are using, but here are my recommendations:
  • 3-Mil tape. It's the only tape that can be used at the hairline because it's so amazingly thin.
  • Super tape for the back and sides. Really strong hold.
  • Davlyn Green/Davlyn black. These are clear glues. The black is for poly/thin skin systems and the green is for lace systems.
You should wash your hair with a liquid detergent plus a mechanical exfoliator, like exfoliating gloves or something. Shave. Wash again with the detergent to remove the hairs. Clean the scalp with 90+ alcohol. Do not use lower percentages, because they leave an oily film on your head and can interfere with the adhesion. Plop the sucker on your head, use a pen or old eyeliner pencil, and trace the front hairline using dots. Apply the tape at the hairline right behind the dots, apply the smallest bit of clear glue in the very front, where you want it to be secured, let it dry slightly, then put the hairpiece on. Use a small-toothed comb to brush hairs out of the way and the handle to apply pressure. Use a bandana or perhaps a silk scarf to apply slight pressure at the hairline for an hour or two. Or overnight.

Remove. Bang. Wig that is secured and ready for activity for atleast 7 days. I remove my system every 7 days, no longer than 10. At that time, my scalp is itchy and I just want to remove the system and properly wash it.

I bought it from a hair replacement salon, I don't have any training to do it at home.
Nor am I going to throw £2000 down the drain.
Already badly torn the base of one the hair systems that was put on too tightly and had to get it off at home as had a massive headache.
So that leaves me with 2 systems.
As was 3 custom bespoke hair systems for £2000.

Plus the base is mostly thin skin, only the front is lace.

The glue you suggested is nasty solvent sh*t, and had many scalp irritations with solvent based glues.
Will be trying ghost bond platinium and supreme next.

And 7 days is crap, want min 2 weeks.

Will give up, if has to be re-glued once a week.

Sorry to hear about those issues. I hope the next attempt improves.
