TAPE BONDING PERIODS

 Bonding periods may differ for each individual based upon their personal body chemistry, activities, environment, or a combination of them.

  • Personal Body Chemistry: when an individual has naturally oily skin or sweats a lot.
  • Activities: normally relate to each individuals personal activities, such as sprots, dancing, etc.

Living in a warm or hot environment or various activities can cause increased sweating and because there's oil in sweat, your bonding period may be less than advertised bonding periods. Using SuperTape is recommended to eliminate the above bonding problem(s). SuperTape provides 40 day bonding periods with no 'meltdown' due to oil penetration.

PLEASE NOTE
Should you choose 'extended wear bonding tape' to secure your wig or hair system, you still have the option to remove your wig or hair system sooner, if desired.

For longer, more secure bonding periods it is recommended you create a secure bonding area on your wig or hair system using EasyTAB 'undercoating' Compound:  details
