We’re not an authority on adhesives of any kind but we do know a thing or three about some of the adhesives that are designed specifically to work even when the climate is humid or the skin perspires.

Lace Wig Glue Options for Those with Allergies or Sensitivities to Ingredients Commonly Found in Wig Adhesives
Allergies or sensitive skin can mean that certain wig adhesives are off limits, but there are a number of adhesives that are designed to withstand high levels of humidity and perspiration and don't contain harsh chemicals (“skin friendly”).
In no particular order, here are some lace wig adhesives that are known to be skin friendly and work with perspiration.
Ghost Bond XL which has been designed specifically to work with oily skin and high levels of humidity and perspiration.
It's a water-based adhesive that was specifically formulated for high humidity and heavy perspiration (as well as oily skin).
Oil Resistant White Glue (ORWG) - Although its name doesn't reveal it, this lace wig glue is great those who for whatever reason, perspire heavily.
It's also a favourite for those with a certain skin type... Can you guess what that skin type is? Go on... Guess (we'll give you a clue; it's to do with the first two words of the glue's name) that's right; it's great for those with oily skin too and although it seems like a strong glue, it's easily released with lace release. It's super easy to use and a little goes a long way.
Besides being designed to withstand perspiration, Silicone Brush-on adhesive also has the added benefit of being a team player... What do we mean by that? We mean that it can be used on different types of wig and cranial prosthesis caps including lace, PU, toupees and lace frontals.
Invisi-Bond is another lace wig adhesive that is designed to withstand perspiration.
Much like Silicone Brush-on adhesive, it's a good all-rounder and can be used on different types of caps, but its added, added bonus is that it's so easy to use that you can apply it with the nozzle cap or... Wait for it.... you can even apply it using your fingers!
It's designed to withstand perspiration but also other types of moisture, so if you get caught in a sudden down pour, no worries, Davlyn's got your back covered... well it's got your lace wig attachment covered.
Another Davlyn wig adhesive is Davlyn Waterproof Green Label Adhesive (don't let the green fool you, it's not about the environment; it's very literally about the fact that it's packaged in green labelling).
Much like its fraternal twin above, Davlyn Green Label is designed to be both skin friendly and perspiration resistant. What's more it's small size means you can size bottle means you can carry it around with you in your jacket pocket or in your handbag– so always to hand should you need it for touch-ups.
The caveat as with all things is that the hold time from any lace wig glue depends on body chemistry and environment.
Finding the right lace wig adhesive is a bit like finding the right skin cream; sometimes there's a bit of trial and error.
Invariably, what works as a good lace wig adhesive for one person, might not meet the requirements of another person - everybody is different and eachbody is different.
