A lace front wig is pretty essential to those who love frequently styling their hair, mimicking the scalp making it look like your natural hair without damaging your actual hair. You probably have read a lot of stuff regarding lace front wig, but this time, it's about the 4 easy hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol.

4 Hacks in Removing Lace Front Glue

Unnatural hair or lace front wigs are quite a popular go-to of women in styling because it’s easy to put on. But it becomes pretty complex when it comes to removing lace front glue without alcohol. Who doesn’t want to have a healthy scalp? These are the 4 easy hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol:

1. Salt + Baking Soda + Lukewarm Water

One of the easiest hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol is using a mixture of water with a little bit of salt and baking soda, but you need to understand that this is also the most time-consuming hack in all four.

Before anything else, add and mix water, salt, and baking soda in a container. Make sure to mix properly. Once you think it is thoroughly mixed, transfer the mixture to a spray bottle for easy usage.

Spray it all over the frontal lace, then put on a shower cap for the next 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully remove the lace part of the wig. Then, use warm water to wash your natural hair very well. Do this over and over again if needed.

2. Vaseline

Out of all the hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol, this hack is the easiest, safest, and gentlest, making it the perfect hack. All you have to do is take an ample amount of Vaseline and spread it in your entire hairline where the front lace is.

Wait for a minute or two, check if it is soft enough to be removed without exerting too much force. Use a warm wet towel to remove the residue of the Vaseline, this way, you won't worry about the mess both in your hair system and hairline. Repeat applying Vaseline if needed to have the desired result.

3. Cream/Oil

Both cream and oil are ideal options for permanently getting rid of the marks that have lingered in the hairline and scalp for an extended time. You can use lotion or any cream you desire. You can add some emollient oil for added effectiveness.

Let it sit in your lace front for 5 to 10 minutes or longer if needed. If it's taking longer than the expected waiting time, you can massage your scalp 'til the hair system is easy to remove. Repeat doing this for the desired result in removing lace front glue without alcohol.

4. Conditioner

This hack is the most convenient of all hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol. Why? Because you can find conditioner in the comfort of your home. You can use a conditioner as a softener to remove the glue-tight front lace from your scalp and spread it all over the lace part to remove the glue residue. Not only is this the cheapest option, but you can also keep your natural hair healthy.

You might be tempted to use alcohol or any kind of remover, but keep in mind that these products can make your front lace, hairline, and scalp dry and damaged. You might want to rub the conditioner into your front lace and massage for a little while. This prevents your hair system from drying and losing its volume.

Confused about how to do it right the first time without wasting too much time? Want to use a lace front wig but do not know how to maintain a healthy scalp? Watch this video to know more about the wigs maintenance:

Steps you Need to Pay Attention Every Time

If you frequently use a lace front wig, there are things you should know to prevent your hair system, hairline, and scalp from getting damaged. Follow this step-by-step guide to avoid having severe hair loss or even balding issues.

  • 1. Whenever you put on a lace wig, always tie the unnatural hair into a ponytail or put bobby pins around it so that you can clearly see the lace when putting adhesive, preventing it from going near your eyes, face, or everywhere.
  • 2. Do a quick skin test if using or changing adhesive brands. Apply a tiny bit of adhesive to the side of your wrist, cover with plastic or any clear wraps and wait 24 to 48 hours for any allergic reaction. Once clear of any reactions, go ahead and use it.
  • 3. Most wig users might not know this, but always remove your lace wig from back to front. Removing it from the front may cause undesired pain and hair pulling, resulting in hair and scalp damage.
  • 4. Patience is a virtue. Having done several steps for your unnatural hair care can somehow be a hassle, making it tempting to just pull it right through your scalp. You do not do this. Take some extra mile and have patience with the process. Remember that you have to spend a dime on your hair system, and you do not want another extra dime in treating your damaged hair and scalp due to your impatience.
  • 5. Removing lace front wigs can be exhausting, making most people skip the most essential step - cleaning your skin after removing the unnatural hair. It is a must that once you have gotten rid of your hair system, you must clean your skin for glue or dirt residue left on your skin.

You can always use a warm wet towel, or you can have that well-deserved long hot bath. It's your take.

  • 6. Do not settle with just cleaning your skin. Wash your unnatural hair too. You use it every now and then, meaning there are sweats or specks of dirt trapped in it somewhere in between. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and be generous in using conditioner with your hair system to preserve its beauty.

Not sure how to properly clean your hair system? Here’s another video to show you how to do it without damaging your hair system:

  • 7. Store your hair system properly, or following this guide will be useless. After air-drying, put it in a wig stand. To prevent tangled ends, you can use a wide-tooth comb to bring the wig in good shape. Want extra caution? Cover it with a plastic or a hairnet, whatever works for you.


You can always use hair system remover if all these hacks in removing lace front glue without alcohol feel like too much. After all, it is pretty much convenient and quick to be done. But bear in mind that using those removers can damage both your scalp and hair system, so it is safer to use these hacks in removing lace front wig without alcohol.
