The best glue for lace-front wigs is Vapon No Tape Liquid Adhesive. Vapon No Tape Liquid Adhesive is a professional-strength, medically safe adhesive that will be able to hold your lace-front wig on all day and all night without budging. Vapon No Tape Liquid Adhesive is heat, water, and sweat and can even be applied to tape tab material instead of directly to the skin if necessary. And the best part of all, Vapon No Tape Liquid Adhesive can hold for anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks if you plan on wearing a wig for a more extended period of time.

Best Sweat-Proof Wig Glue

The best sweat-proof wig glue is Ghost Bond XL Hair Replacement Adhesive. For those sweaty nights at the club or working out with a wig, Ghost Bond XL Hair Replacement Adhesive is your best friend. Ghost Bond XL Hair Replacement Adhesive was specifically formulated for those with oily skin, those who live in humid climates, and for those who sweat (literally all of us) because it is oil-resistant and waterproof.

How to Glue on a Wig

Best Hydrating Wig Glue

If you need a wig glue that won’t dry out your skin, then look no further than ORS Olive Oil Fix-It Grip Gel Ultra Hold. ORS Olive Oil Fix-It Grip Gel Ultra Hold can hold both lace-front and closure wigs and contains castor oil, which helps keep the skin hydrated all day while also protecting your edges. ORS Olive Oil Fix-It Grip Gel Ultra Hold is also great because it is resistant to sweat and humidity and will last all day without any problems.

Best Spray Wig Glue

The best spray wig glue is Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray. Okay, yes, Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray is not a wig glue, it is a hairspray, but it works really well as a wig glue. Simply spray Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray onto your edges and then secure the wig; it is that simple. Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray is easily removable with a bit of water and shampoo. It’s definitely the best option if you are in a hurry to get your wig on.
All of these wig glues are excellent; you just need to choose the one that will be best for your skin and hair type, but feel free to try out different wig glues to find the one that works best for you because what works best for someone else may not work for you.
It all comes down to preference. Wig glue holds stronger and longer, but wig tape is generally more comfortable. Neither is “better” than the other; it all depends on what you prefer out of your wig adhesive.
The manufacturer of Vapon No Tape Liquid Adhesive recommends using Topsol Adhesive Solvent for easiest removal.
Yes, Ghost Bond XL Hair Replacement Adhesive will work, but be careful not to get any on your edges if you have fine hair because the glue is very strong and very capable of ripping out fine edges.
No, ORS Olive Oil Fix-It Grip Gel Ultra Hold is not waterproof but it can be easily and gently removed with water as opposed to using any chemicals that irritate your skin.
Yes, Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray will work very well on lace-front wigs.
