Default Why can't hot glue be used as a no slip grip?

I was just wondering if it stood up or not. I kind of found out by accident when I got some hot glue on the lined clip and tried to get it off but ended up smeared. Just wondering if anyone else uses it and it just does not work or what?
Thanks
April

I think it does work and some people use it. I don't think it looks as nice as other methods and my hot glue tends to get discolored over time so I don't use it for that purpose

I agree. I think it's more for aesthetic reasons that people don't use this method for non-slip.

If i'm in a hurry and don't have any velvet, I will use hot glue. I just hate waiting for things to dry.

i don't use it because if it gets hot the hot glue will fuse the the hair and hard to slide out. happened to me before, or if i'm selling out door and the sun is shining it fuses to the paper backing that it's clipped on.

I use it all the time and the customers love it!! If you use the side of the glue gun tip to make it smooth and blow t dry most people do not even see it! I love it!!

I've wondered about this, too. I think I'll try it & smear it. I can't see how it would be much different than silicone. But I haven't tried silicone either, so I really have no idea!
