Anytime I speak to someone struggling with the method or experiencing bond loss, it is typically because they are pressing the bond into the hair or taking too long to line the hair up. Please, DON'T do this!
- Don’t roll the TemBond® as in fusion bonding!
- Never press or roll the wet bond into the hair when applying.
- When applying the TemBond®, you allow the bond to form itself for the majority of the body of the bond. You are not touching any bond whole it dries.
- Make sure you bond is HOT enough to seep through all the hairs you are attaching to. Typically, your pot is on the near highest setting.
Additional tip for application:
Be sure your TemBond® is stirred while applying. If you leave the drying material to settle and use just the wet, runny material on top, your bonds will be too soft. Use your spatula to scrape the bottom of the pot and mix everything thoroughly.
