Im sure this has been asked before, but I cannot find it.
I am completely bald, and my wig will not stay “solid” on my head. I have the bands tightened, but maybe the shape of my head? it still slides around.
Besides 2 sided tape, are there any other suggestions?

I’m not bored but I’ve dealt with those who are there are different things out there but with varying results depending on size of your head and skin type some people have very oily scalp which makes it difficul
There is a glue out there that black women use for lace front wigs if you go on some of the sites you may find it or look it up under subject if you go to a beauty supply in a black neighborhood you will find that glue no problem
The silicone man works well for a lot of people but if you have a large head they don’t make them big enough and you can’t slice them together because no kind of adhesive will stick to the silicone making modifying them a problem
The other thing you might want to try is a spray breast adhesive for breast forms I’ve known people who’ve used it to some success but you have to make sure that the glue is dry before you put on your head or it will burn the skin
One thing you might try is using a deodorant on your head so it doesn’t sweat as much sometimes that becomes a problem when using adhesive and there are clothing adhesives that you can use that are harmless
I know one person uses fashion tape to some success but when she sweats the tape let’s go hence the fact for using deodorant that will work to a certain extent I even use it on my face prevent losing the makeup on hot days it works very well
Good luck Donatello

Hi Regine! I wanted to throw in my two cents worth in regard to wearing wigs. I’ve been bald most of my life and still have a fringe of hair on the sides and back, I’ve always had an issue with my wig slipping or not staying put very well. I decided about a month ago to try and find a solution. While looking at wigs on Amazon I ran across this:
Beaugee Wig Grip Headband, Bundle with Free Comb – Adjustable Comfort Head Hair Band for Women – Velvet Material – Velcro Closure – Non Slip, Keeps Wig Secured – Prevents Headaches & Hair Loss (Beige) Sold by: Beaugee
I also found this on Vogue Wigs: GRIPCAP COMFORT BAND AND WIG CAP
I’ve tried them both and was amazed at how well they both work. They are both very comfortable and really hold the wig in place. I think I like the band better than the cap, but only because the cap is just another layer of material on my hot head!
I hope this helps.

Hi Lisa, I actually ordered that band, and received it yesterday, It works superbly, Fixed my problem immediately, and I didn’t get the cap for the same reason, my head is always hot to begin with.
Thanks so much for all the advice, ladies

Thank you, mine had the clips, but they are like little jaws that bite into your head, and I had to remove them, lol

Im bald too, and the website where I bought my most recent purchase( my favourite and most expensive so far ) also sold wig glue. It really does hold the wig properly in place, and is a water based glue. Takes a bit of peeling off, and the residue is a bit of a nuisance to get off, but gives you the confidence to know it will stay put until you decide to remove it.
Hope this helps Regine.
