Say goodbye to the days of struggling with messy and damaging wig and weave removal processes. Introducing SheaMoisture Bond Release Spray, an alcohol-free hairspray infused with tea tree oil, borage seed oil, and aloe vera. This revolutionary product is not only effective in releasing water-based adhesives but also gentle on the skin, particularly on the delicate edges. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the steps of using this game-changing remover for a stress-free and damage-minimizing experience.

The Gentle Approach to Removal

SheaMoisture Bond Release Spray stands out for its ability to minimize damage to your edges during the removal process. Here's how you can make the most of its gentle formula:

  1. Preparation is Key: Begin by preparing a washcloth, baby washcloth, or a section of a T-shirt. Soak it and wring out the excess water.

  2. Application Technique: Hold the saturated section on the hairline for one minute. This helps break down the glue without the mess associated with cotton pads.

  3. Lathering for Success: Gently rub the soaked cloth to lather and further break down the glue. This ensures a smoother removal process.

  4. Direct Application for Stubborn Sections: If a section doesn't lift easily, spray the remover directly onto the lace and hold for additional time. Repeat until it lifts with only a gentle tug, avoiding any pulling.

  5. Dealing with Residue: To remove any remaining chunks of glue on your edges, spray the remover directly on the hairline, rub gently, and watch the glue ball up. You can then gently tug to completely remove it from your hair/edges.

  6. Post-Removal Care: Pat off the hairline completely and follow up with a residue remover shampoo. This step ensures that any leftover residue and product are effectively removed.

Extra Tips for Lace Maintenance

For those wearing wigs, especially lace-front ones, the SheaMoisture Bond Release Spray can be a valuable tool in maintaining your lace. After detaching the wig from your forehead, follow these steps:

  1. Repeat the Process: Repeat the same removal process on the lace, removing the majority of the bonding adhesive.

  2. Precursor to Shampoo: Use this as a precursor to shampoo on the lace instead of on your natural hair. This extra step ensures thorough cleaning without compromising the integrity of your natural hair.


SheaMoisture Bond Release Spray is your ticket to a hassle-free and gentle wig and weave removal experience. By following these simple steps, you can bid farewell to the struggles of excessive tugging and messy cotton pads. Embrace a smoother removal process while keeping your edges and natural hair intact. Make SheaMoisture Bond Release Spray your go-to solution for a stress-free hair routine.
