    Default Repairing a 1 Inch Cut On The Poly Perimeter - What Products To Use For Repair?

    Hi,

    I just had a cut-in done a week ago on a new unit. It has a poly perimeter with the front being french lace and the center inside of the poly being mono.

    There is a one inch cut from a pair of scissors where my stylist made a mistake when cutting my unit to fit. Currently, I'm using a piece the "red lace" tape to keep it secure until I can find a permanent solutions to mend the incision.

    So my question is, what tape and poly repair glue should I use. Any brand names or product links would be greatly appreciated, along with any other tips. Thanks!

    (I'll get a photo uploaded when I'm ready to re-tape my system)

    An old unit of mine (about 8-months old) developed a similar tear. I sowed it and it was good for another 2-months until my replacement arrived.

    I think there is also tape available to close rips.

    Liquid polyurethane seems to be half the solution, along with 3M transpore clear plastic tape.Most of the liquid poly seems to be sold in industrial sized quantities but a few online stores that cater to hair systems have it for sale in small containers.

    I still have more research to do as I want this solution to be permanent as my unit is practically brand new.
