Esha Absolute Adhesive quick review:

I like to experiment with different tapes and adhesives to see what works best for me. For the adhesive, I started out with Walker Ultra hold, Ghost Bond Classic (I ordered GB Platinum but they sent me Classic) and Got2B black tube. Luckily my body chemistry has been good with all of them. Got2B was very easy to use but only can hold for 2-3 days. The hairline edge starting to lift after shower, sweat from exercise and 3rd day would become lose. Fortunately, it's only take few minutes to clean up and another few mins to re-attach the hairline. About 10 days ago, I switched to a Esha Absolute waterproof adhesive and my experience with Esha has been very good so far. I applied only one thin coat and the result is similar to GB and Ultra hold that I got more than a week of solid bond. The hairline edge were sealed tight with no lift for more than a week. The beauty of Esha , it dry up in less than a minute after applied it on the scalp. Unlike Ghost Bond or Walker Ultra Hold need to wait long time for each coats to dry up and not to mention more time to clean up the mess if I using GB or Ultra hold. Using Esha is way more time-efficient and less mess to clean up too. I current use Esha for the hairline and use Walker non residue 1522 tape for the perimeter.

I bought the Esha on Amazon and it cost $19.99. This is the link.

Hi @Noah, Thank you for re-posting my thread. I consider myself a pretty rough HS user, especially during the first month learning periods. That's okay because messing up is part of the learning process. It turned out the lifespan of a my hair system is much longer than I expected. I think its depends of a combination of factors.
All my systems is a stock unit, base size cut down to 7 X 9 inch and color of 1B# Off black.

1st link below is my newest 0.03 Ultra Thin Skin V-looped

First Full France Lace Base system:
I just took it out from the box couple weeks ago and re-use it again on weekend when I go hiking or any out door activity. These photos were taken at the beach over the weekend in a very strong wind so you can see my hairline in front of the sun. I use Walker 1522 tape only on the perimeter and hairline.

There's an overwhelming assortment of hair system products. I bought a lot of products to experiment when I first started wearing 8 months ago. A lot of them I don't use it anymore. Now I'm only using few products and they can last for months.

Products I use:
USD$
$2 91% Isopropyl alcohol
$6 Got2B gel
$5 1522 Clear Adhesive Tape 36 Pieces
$13 Remy Hair Silk Mist Leave-in Conditioner
$15 Silicon mix hair treatment conditioner and shampoo
$19 Esha Absolute glue (I only use this glue on the hairline for swimming or camping trip)
$12 Awesome Human Wig Shampoo
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Products I don't use anymore:
Walker Lace Front Tape (I will only use this on skydiving or scuba-diving)
Walker Positioning Spray (same as using 91% Isopropyl alcohol)
Ultra Hold Mini Tabs (1522 tape is much better for me)
Walker Lace Release (same as using 91% Isopropyl alcohol)
Walker Scalp Protector (I don't feel any benefit of using this)
C-22 Citrus Solvent (same as using 91% Isopropyl alcohol)
Ultro hold adhesive (I will only use this on skydiving or scuba-diving)
10 miracle leave in conditioner (Remy Conditioner is much cheaper)
Walker Knot sealer (I bought it but never use it)
Walker positioning spray (same as using 91% Isopropyl alcohol)
Caudalie Vinotherapie Divine Oil (good product but I think Remy Hair Silk Mist is good enough)
Ghost Bond adhesive (Esha Absolute works much better for me)
