    Has anyone used silicone sheet to keep a wig secure? I see that wigs.com sells silicone sheets by JR and I seem to remember someone here commenting on using silicone to keep the wig from slipping. Curious as to whether anyone has tried that and if so, how did it go?

    I haven't tried those, but they sound hot. Wigs.com sells a wig grip that has a silicone band in the middle of it. I have one of those, but I have hair so it's over kill for me. I'm sending it to a relative that's mostly bald. I've started seeing wigs with silicone over bands of the cap. The latest was by Raquel Welch. I'm sorry, I don't remember the name of the wig. I think that would be cooler and a better bet. I wonder if there's a way to put silicone on the wigs we already have.

    i ordered the silicone sheet because it is worth a try. I wear JR wigs, and I am having "slippage" with Naomi which is a mono top, but not with another wig that is lace front but not a mono top. I don't like the glue if I can avoid it, and I also have hair. I hate wig grips as they give me a headache. The glue works, but it is a pain in the butt to use every day. I saw that the new RW wigs are sporting a silicone coating of some sort, so I am going to try cutting small strips to sew into my wig cap and see if this works.

    Maybe try some silicone from a big box store and put a bead around the edges of a wig you are ready to retire and try that.

    HI Happy to be Retired, It was Beatrice who used the silicone sheet, she used to cut into pieces and pur at the nape, and near the ear tabs I think. I have tried using this as well, sometimes it works really well, and other times not so well, so a bit hit and miss for me.
