Best way to get the glue off wigs?

Post by IndigoAndAsh on Mon Dec 14, 2015 12:45 pm

My batch of wigs has arrived, and I'm peeling them off the head caps to use for BJDs/use without swapping out the head caps.

The glue isn't too sticky, but it does stay on the inside of the wig. What's the best thing to use to clean that off?

I peeled a wig off once before, and it didn't have that much glue on it to begin with. Also once it was peeled off it wasn't very sticky, so I would just wash it with warm water to melt the glue.  Smile

Just curious. When you have multiple wigs, do people glue them or do they stay on without glue?

The fur ones i've glued, and the longer ones because they slip, but the glue is just pva and doesn't hold that well. The short ones, the elastication usually holds them on just fine. I have a wig cap for Nate because his wig looooves to just ping off regardless and glue didn't work, it's just a silicone rubber cap that sits underneath the wig and has little prongs to hold it. Seems to work well.

I thought about using a spot of velcro or would that be too thick?
