Default Velcro on headbands..

What type of adhesive do you use when attaching velcro onto the inside of a headband? I use hot glue and after a couple of wears it detaches in spots. Any suggestions on how to keep that sucker in place for good?

Thanks!

I have a dumb question. Why would you put velcro on the inside of a headband?

I use velcro so headbands/toggles can stay in my hair...(I have only done this for mine nad my sisters) it pulls on some peoples hair...so it's a matter of choice! I know Wendy sales instructions for another cool way to make thins non slip! The velcro I use is the self adhesive type...

Cool idea! I just made a headband for my daughter and she complains that it keeps falling out. I think I'm going to run to WM tomorrow for some velcro!

Thanks for the tip. I will try the self adhesive and if that doesn't work I will look into the tut!

I glue a 4" strip of velcro to the inside of my woven headbands with fabric-tac.

It doesn't seem to hurt my daughter. I bet it feels better than the plastic headbands you can buy with the teeth on them. I'm wondering if the loop part of the hook & loop tape would be more comfortable if it worked.

I wonder if you could use shelf liner? I know some women use it for non slip on clippies.....I wonder if you could use it on headbands? Any thoughts?
