Removing Your Lace System

Removing your lace system is a very simple process and I find it to be less difficult than the application process. Please know that care needs to be taken when removing the system to avoid damage to the lace as well as your skin. The items that you will need to get started is a ponytail holder, a few hair clips or bobby pins for the baby hairs, solvent remover (I use Lace Release and C-22), 91% or 99% alcohol, cotton balls, and a microfiber cloth.

  1. Pull hair into ponytail to avoid getting adhesive on it.
  2. Apply the adhesive remover to the attached areas around the perimeter of your hairline. Allow the solvent to soak into the lace for a few minutes. Use more solvent if needed.
  3. Gently and slowly remove the lace crown. Be careful not to pull the lace crown.
  4. After the lace crown is removed, be sure to remove any excessive adhesive with an old toothbrush, microfiber (best at removing adhesive), or mirror (slide the lace system on the mirror to remove excessive adhesive), solvent or alcohol gently working in circular motions. Knots can become loose if scrubbing roughly.
  5. Read the instructions HERE on washing your lace crown.
  6. Use a scrub or comb to remove the adhesive from your hairline.
