This is used to paste the hair piece made after brushing white latex.
The usage is generally to brush directly with a small brush, or dip a little at the end of the pointed-tail comb, apply it to the hair piece, and then stick it to the appropriate position of the wig and wait for it to dry.
Some people also use it to mix alcohol, which is also a 1:1 ratio, for special modeling, anti-warping modeling, anti-gravity modeling and so on.
This is the usual glue for making beauty tips. Brush it directly on the cut hair, shape it into the shape you want, stick it on the wig, and wait a few hours for it to dry.
