First things first, it’s a wise choice to have Goodyard hair replacement systems for your clients or yourself. We concentrate on working in hair and beauty industry for more than 30 years, that rely on and proud of our serious quality control.

Base on that, multiple options are available for choosing the bonding method and product applying on different bases of your Goodyard hair system.

There are some relatively new hairstylists of hair replacement systems are confused with using tape or glue and most of people think tape can be easier to apply onto the hair system while glue is more strong than tape.


Tape or glue? Actually it depends.

Tape is old school and glue is new school. The best bonding method for attachment is distinct for each person. Factors like your hairstyle, what base type you choose and how long you intend to wear your hair system determine what is the best for you. Keep in mind that your choice of bonding methods can change over time. If you try something and aren’t happy, you can try something different on your next attachment.


Basically, use glue in frontal if you’d like to expose your hairline, which will make it more undetectable. Vice versa, use tape if you’re used to not exposing your hairline. Why? Tape is less maintain and easier to apply but it’s not as invisible as glue, especially with the edge of your hairline.


Generally, for the skin base that is attached with glue or tape both are okay. But it seems glue seeping into the lace is a problem. The solution is to put glue on your scalp only(never on the base), and to leave it till it’s dry and just slightly tacky before applying the hair system or you can speed it up with a hair dryer.

For light density of the base, glue also will be the best choice due to tape may shine on your scalp through the base.

Make sure you do not use tape on ultra thin skin bases. Because the base material is so thin, it can easily get damaged when you remove the tape for cleanup. Additionally, the tape creates a thicker edge on the base, which defeats the purpose of using ultra thin skin.

Lifestyle with hair systems

If you choose to bond your hair system and remove it daily (or every one to three days), you’ll want to choose a low-tack tape that is still secure, but designed for short-term use, so you can safely remove it from your scalp without damaging the base or scalp. And it’s easy to apply with out messy your hand.If you choose to bond your hair system and remove it in two weeks or even longer time, you’ll want to use glue.


Here’s some pros and cons of tape and glue, you may have a general idea what to choose.

Besides, Body chemistry and environmental conditions, like oily skin, humidity and excessive sweat, cause adhesives to work differently with each person’s skin. Due to all the variables involved, which type of adhesive to use is a decision you’ll determine through trial and error.

If you don’t do the glue adhesion currently, you could really make a mess of it and have a nightmare on your hands. All you need to do is just follow the instructions and practice more or just use tape first if you are new to apply hair systems.
