In addition to installing hair systems on your customers’ heads, mastering how to remove and clean your customers’ scalps properly is also a required skill for salon owners or hairstylists. Proper removal is important for good care and maintenance.

Tools required: Adhesive Remover( C-22 adhesive solvent), finger nail brush, shampoo, and a towel.

How to remove a hair system:




Step 1: Spray the remover on the base. Then, peel the hair system gradually and carefully from the scalp. Be careful not to pull so hard that you tear the base. This step may take some time. Be patient!


Step 2: Soak the hair system in cool water for a while to make it totally wet. NEVER use hot water.




Step 3: Place the hair system on a flat surface and clean off the adhesive residue. Use your hands to remove any excess residue with short, gentle strokes.




Step 4: For stubborn residue on the edges, use C-22 adhesive solvent. Brush it on with a finger nail brush to loosen the residue. Then, break it free.



Step 5: Wash the hair system with shampoo to make sure all of the residue has been removed. Then, towel it dry.
