The Benefits of Using Products Seasonally


With the changing of the seasons comes new holidays, new opportunities, and different kinds of activities. But with each new season also comes challenges for your tapes and adhesives and how they will perform with the changing weather and temperatures.

You may be wondering what products you should use during certain seasons, such as when summer is on the horizon, or when winter is coming up. We’re here to share our knowledge with you. All the products listed can be used in all conditions, but they have key benefits when used in certain seasons.

Let’s dive in with:


Warm Weather Products


Summer can be brutal on adhesives. Between sweat, sun, and swimming, there are so many factors that can weaken the adhesive’s hold over time. That means you’re going to need products that can help strengthen and protect that hold.

Products like:


Max Hold Sport


One of the best ways to help protect adhesives from the forces of summer is with Max Hold Sport, our strongest scalp protector. It’s made to create a barrier between the adhesive and anything that could loosen the hold, like sweat or chlorinated water.

It’s also:


  • Perfect for immediate exposure to water after install.
  • Made to create longer lasting hold times for bonds.
  • Helpful for protecting the adhesive from humidity, sweat, and more.


Walker Signature Tape


Warm weather means that many of your clients will be looking to switch to lace systems, which are lighter and more breathable. These systems can be delicate, so you will need a tape that’s gentle, while not shining through the mesh system construction.

We recommend Walker Signature Tape. It’s the perfect tape for summertime because it has:


  • Longer wear time, which means more time for your clients between installs
  • A flexible liner and construction for comfortable wear.
  • Minimal residue, meaning a very easy clean-up.
  • A great tape for lace units due to its dull finish.


Lace Release


Since summer hair systems are more delicate, they’re going to need a remover that is gentle as well. Lace Release is gentle on delicate hair systems, while also being designed to work quickly.

It is:


  • Made to help lower the risk of damaging fragile systems.
  • Safe on skin, making it less likely to cause irritation.
  • Residue free due to the alcohol base, which evaporates without the need for any cleanup.


Next, we move on to:

Cold Weather Products


Cold weather can be another challenge for tapes. Cool temperatures can cause them to harden, leading to cracks in the tape and weaker holds for the hair system.

With colder conditions, your clients may want to switch to wearing sturdier systems, such as polyurethane bases. These units need stronger adhesives, removers, and products. Here are some products that can help with that challenge:


Extreme Hold Liquid Adhesive


Liquid adhesives can often be the better way to go during winter. When stored on a shelf they may harden in the cold, but their holds won’t be affected. You’ll just need to gradually warm them up using a safe method (putting the bottle in warm water, for example). Then it will be ready to use!

One favorite for wearers is Extreme Hold. It’s skin safe and dries clear, so it won’t show through a system.

It’s also:

  • Maximum Wear, being able to hold for four weeks plus.
  • Made with a silicone base, which keeps its stability no matter the temperature.
  • Safe for use on just about any hair system, ensuring a comfortable wear.


C-22 Solvent


With sturdier adhesives and systems comes the need for a strong adhesive remover. One of our most popular removers happens to be just that. C-22 Solvent is one of our strongest skin safe and fast acting removers.

It has:

  • An oil base for a quick removal of the hair system.
  • A clean citrus scent.
  • The ability to be used on all systems: poly, lace, mesh, etc.


Just-Rite Positioning Spray


Many liquid adhesives are formulated to be tacky when ready for install, meaning they adhere quickly. So it helps to have a safeguard on hand, like Just-Rite Positioning Spray.

This spray is designed to briefly suspend the hold of an adhesive, allowing you time to readjust if needed. Do a few quick sprays on the inside of a system before placing it on your client’s head.

Just-Rite Positioning Spray is used for:


  • Any type of hair system: lace, mesh, poly, etc.
  • Quick to evaporate without affecting hold times.
  • Helps correct slight placement mistakes.


And finally:

All-Weather Products


Lace Front


Lace Front tape is perfect for any situation. It’s one of our best bets for Maximum Wear hold times, and it’s very dull, so it won’t show through even the thinnest of lace units.

It also:


  • Can be used on any type of hair system.
  • Is hypoallergenic, making it comfortable wear for your clients.
  • Leaves little residue, making for an easier and quicker clean-up.


Bond Breaker Shampoo


Designed to strip away any adhesive or build-up that may be left on the bio hair or the unit, Bond Breaker Shampoo is a great way to help achieve a solid bond. It can also help get rid of any oils or dirt that might affect a hold.

Bond Breaker Shampoo is:


  • Skin safe (but not made for daily use).
  • Safe for all systems.
  • An important step in the preparation process.


Top-Loc Knot Sealer


Over time, constant use of a hair system can cause the knots holding the hair in place to come loose. But that can be prevented by using Top-Loc Knot Sealer. Just a few quick sprays before an install can help your client’s system stay looking new and wearable longer.

It is:


  • Safe for just about any skin type.
  • Made for mesh units.
  • Helps reduce hair shedding from the system.
