All things wig installation

While speaking to Briefly News, Benedict Muzembe told the publication that wig installations are tricky because they differ.

"Depending on the lace that the person, some lace is already tinted lace, transparent lace or just a normal lace, not even HD or just a very big lace. The glue also plays a part in how your wig installation will turn out to be," she said.

The beautician and hairstylist recommend Ghost Bond Glue because it is very strong. However, she also stated that different people react differently to it.

"Some people may irritate the skin, and others it does not. So it really depends on the glue; some would use Glamour glue. At times, these glues would last for a few days and, for some, just one day, so it really depends on your skin type and glue."

The factors that affect a wig installation could be due to the place you may find yourself in, says Benedict. The make-up artist said it can sometimes be "moist," glue could have been "bad", and they have not "worked well on the lace."

Muzembe also revealed to the publication that the wig installation should last two days.
