I’m desperately in need of some help. I’m working on an kit and the vinyl is pretty hard so i used a rice sock. That worked well I thought, but when I checked the hair I had rooted, most of it wasn’t really in the vinyl. It just fell back out. ️
So, I remembered reading here several times that’s a thin layer of glue in the head would help. I’ve never done that because I was afraid the glue would be pulled through with the needle, but I’m desperate so I gave it a try.
I let the glue dry with a fan blowing in the head for around 24 hours and tried the next day. First, the rice sock got glued inside the head. I thought maybe the warmth of the sock made the glue sticky again so I worked the sock out of the head and let it dry for a couple more days.
Now when I try to root the head the needle pulls out little hard balls of glue that I have to pick out of the hair. I’m just at a loss. This is a custom order that I’m already running behind on because my father was very sick and recently passed away.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
