I have been looking at LordHair to order my first system.
I am thinking of going with the S7 French Lace with #4ASH color.

1. Would this work for me?
2. Would the color I have chosen work?
3. Is it better to use glue or tape?

I have attached photos of my head/hair for reference.

I can't tell what your natural color is via those pics. Just go through Lord Hair's color wheel & pick a suitable-seeming color. They really have every shade available in stock/S7...

Tape is easier to work with, so I'd recommend that.

Tape is always easier, glue is best for the hairline if you're going to expose it. Otherwise tape everything.

Seeing that your hair is so short I would Buzz literally the whole side of your head to get a good amount.... send that sample into whatever dealer you use so that they can match it...

I'm so goddamn disappointed all tapes cause my skin to swell and itch.

Tape is sooo easy to deal w.

I haven't had much time to experiment a got2b. Went out on Fri but wasn't willing to test it at a club

Get that skin MD! Give it a try, worst case you lose $10 best case you can use the tapes you so desire!

Hi Shauno

Just been looking at your pics. I have to say your sides are very far gone. It is going to be difficult for you to get a good look from a hair system with a blended style. The choice for you is to go for either an extreme undercut style where the sides are basically buzzed to zero (example below), or a full wig.

Any of the Walker brand of tapes is good and reliable. For glues, the most popular ones are Ghostbond, Ultrahold and Davlyn.

Basically you can use any styling product on a system that you can use on your natural hair. Sometimes people tell you to avoid ones with alcohol in the ingredients, but unless you are going to be rubbing the product on your hairline that is not really an issue - the alcohol soon boils off at body temperature anyway. The limiting factor is build-up. You won't be washing your system as often as you washed your natural hair, so you don't want a lot of product added each morning which is going to build up and make the hair heavy and dull. With gel, paste, wax, hairspray etc, it is best try recycle the same product each day using a damp comb, rather than adding new product. I like argan oil, because it seems to soak in or evaporate during the day, so it doesn't accumulate.
