So I really want to shave my hair again but I have no idea how I'm going to secure my heavy wigs if I go through with it. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips? Or am I just going to have to forgo the heavy wigs?

Sturdy toupee tape such as Duo-Tac. Make sure to properly prep and clean your skin first. To remove it you'll need something like spirit gum remover, a citrus-based adhesive remover, or 99% alcohol.

If you have a lace-front, you may need to use the tape further up your forehead, and spirit gum or other adhesive to stick down the front edge of the lace. For my wig, I could clearly see the Duo-Tac through the lace.

I thought tape wouldn't be strong enough but I haven't tried it so I'd be willing to give it a go! Although, I'm not planning on going totally bald so I'm worried about it sticking to the little hair I'd have left!!

Oh and if it helps (probably should have put this earlier lmao) but this is one of the wigs I was worried about slipping. It's got three huge ponytails on it so it's pretty heavy

Oh that looks like it could be awesome! Going to look for a UK seller of something similar though because the shipping is more than the actual band. But thanks for showing me this! Definitely gonna find myself one!
