We explain in this article, how to make a touch-up. An important phase to know how to do it yourself to avoid many surprises.

Rest assured, it is quite normal to notice less fixation at the front edge after several weeks, especially if you are a great athlete or tend to sweat quite easily. Perspiration will then melt the hair glue of your prosthesis. Nothing too bad, don't worry. Knowing how to perform a touch-up can be a considerable advantage, especially if you are on vacation and therefore cannot go to your hair technician or if he simply cannot see you due to a full schedule. .

The touch-up will extend and optimize your fixation until your next interview. To do this, nothing simpler ! We explain everything below.

Step 1

This first step consists of first brushing your hair backwards so that none of them get lodged in the hair resin. Then gently lift the front edge of your prosthesis 3 to 5 centimeters back, then secure the hair from your front edge to the rest of your hair using clips. Thus it will be completely maintained and you will then be able to carry out your editing more easily.

2nd step

Then remove the excess hair glue by gently rubbing your skull with a clean cloth or paper towel. Avoid the use of cotton wool as it may fray and snag in hair glue residue. Be aware that you won't be shampooing for a touch-up, so don't use solvent as this will prevent the new hair resin from adhering sufficiently and you won't get the desired result.

It is important to make sure that your frontal border as well as your skull are completely dry before proceeding to the next step.

If necessary, use a hair dryer to speed up the drying time, but be careful not to burn yourself!

Do not hesitate to use the hair dryer again for faster drying. If you want, you can also add a thin layer to your scalp, being careful not to go too low on your hairline to avoid any shine in the days to come. If you wear a tulle hair topper , apply the hair resin directly to your skull and not to the base because it will penetrate the microperforations and cling to the hair.
