How I keep my wig cap in place Make sure that your skin is cleaned and prepped with whatever scalp protector you use.I start by applying red liner tape around the perimeter of my head. Then I apply the wig cap on top of that not quite to the edge of the tape. Then I apply another layer of tape on top of the wig cap against the edge of the first layer of tape. It's a wig cap sandwich. Now I apply my adhesive to my skin as normal. Then apply the lace as usual. I really like this method because the tape not only keeps the wig cap in place, but also provides a little more security than just the adhesive alone. Whenever I have to touch up, it's only a little tiny bit beyond the tape.
