I wanted to use the elastic band method but it wouldn't work, the wig kept popping back, the sides rose up and pulled back, the back slipped up, can't glue it because I wear it behind my hairline and no-one ever knows Im wearing a wig, in front of my hairline this one looks terrible as it was badly made at the front.
Why didn't the elastic band method work for you? At what point were you adhering the band? I measure from ear to ear and measure a but lower to add an additional band just underneath my ears.
Are you using your exact ear to ear measurements? I find it works best if you cut 3/4 an inch or 1/2 from the measurement. I saw a youtuber who cut an inch from the measurement and I tried that and while my unit was flat and secure, my head throbbed like crazy! I swear I could not think straight and was super cranky!
I am now natural underneath and stick to kinky straight or italian yaki units & tend to allow baby hair only out so it looks natural. Also, I can't ventilate, tried many times with a little success but was never able to grasp it the way I felt comfortable so what I do now is attach afro curly hair around the front perimeter of my units with black invisible thread.
I cropped pics to show hairline, but I keep getting error messages. I will post them in a separate message. I would post full shots but can't block face on this laptop/don't have the right program on this laptop.
If you want to use adhesive, I always found ostomy adhesives like Nu Hope worked best .
Edit: Still can't upload pics so added some here
