Blueliner is just not working for me anymore. The tape just sticks to my neck but not the lace Cry The tape that I apply directly to my lace ends up sticking to my neck too. What am I doing wrong?
 
Do yall think I need to try a liquid adhesives?
 
All suggestions are welcomed.
 
Thank you!

Are you cleaning the lace well with alcohol before you apply the tape ?  Or, is the tape old and it is not working?  These are just some thoughts that come to mind. Check the tape on another unit. If it is sticking there, then you probably have some residue on the lace.  Then check the tape, probably, if it is sticking to the skin there is nothing wrong with it.

Thanks Becky I'll have to check out Proflex.
 
Celie I'm cleaning the lace with alcohol throughly. I'll try using the tape on other unit and see how that works. Thanks for the suggestion.
 
I use supertape in the front and have no problems. Supertape has never held down my nape so I can't use it as an alternative...
 
I'm so tempted to get some Ultrahold but I know it's badPinch

This was my first thought. Try a little dawn on the inside of the cap. This is always my last cleaning step. I got that tip from a member a while back.

Also are you letting the lace dry long enough after you clean with alcohol?

MsMaya,
 
I switch between tape and adhesives to give myself a break from adhesives. I used proflex and sometimes my hold is still not that great at the nape when used alone. I have some supertape that is giving me like a 4-5 day hold with adhesives. I just bought some vapon no tape and I will try that with either tape as soon as it arrives. I am seriously about to stop using UH because of many reasons but most importantly I think it is throwing off my period. I want to find something less toxic for my body. I have used secure hold and proflex tape for a 1 week hold and I think that is less toxic for me than the UH. I will go back through the threads to research these adhesives again because I am learning that some aren't for me.
 
Personally I can not hold tape on my nape without an adhesive for more than a day. I would recommend a light coat of adhesive that is safe for you and proflex or supertape if you need to hold for a week.

I always use one strip of blue liner tap in the middle of the nape area---but I also always use Vapon No Tape. I never have a problem with the nape since learning about that combo

girl, if that was happening to me with UH i would run like the roadrunner from that stuff.  UH has toulene in it and many ladies, such as myself, can't use that stuff.  i causes me to have really bad headaches when i use it, with or without tapes or other adhesives.
 
i got several recommendations from the ladies here on using Proflex no shine and Supertape with my current favorite adhesive, Vapon No Tape.  so far the hold is really strong.  i applied on Monday and its still grabbing for dear life back there.
