So many questions

Help me solve some questions that I’m pondering on!

Hair glue: what type do you use ? Has anyone used silicone to glue hair and eyes in?

Eyelashes; bottom lashes do you root them or paint them?


I use regular aleenes tacky glue for hair
and I root bottom lashes when customers ask for them

Thanks😊. I usually uses the ok to wash for the hair glue. Now I’m wondering if I could mix tacky glue with silicone and make a glue mixture.

I don’t use any bottom lashes. It’s often too much for small babies.
Silicone usually only sticks to silicone. I don’t know if it’ll hold. I use tacky glue and it’s always held up for me, even with combing and occasional gentle washing.

I’ve heard that using silicone glue can ruin a vinyl reborn over time.

I’ve never done bottom lashes, I imagine I would do them for a toddler, but I don’t like the look of bottom lashes on babies since you can barely see them on most real young babies anyway.

I’ve tried a bunch of different glues for hair and I love MacPherson’s Ultimate Rooting Glue more than any other glue! It glues the hair down well, it really sticks to the vinyl. If you need to re-root a spot the needle pierces right through the dried glue without pulling it away from the vinyl. Actually, here is the info from MacPherson’s:

~ This product is a mixture of several archival polymer adhesives to create the best end result for gluing hair onto vinyl!

~ Low Odor

~ Adheres to Hair AND Vinyl

~ This glue slightly shrinks for better adhering to the hair

~ Wet Glue has a milky color so that you can see if all hair has been covered


~ Once dry, glue is resistant to water and chemicals

~ Rooting needles can pierce through the glue to allow rooting touchups

~ Great Archival Properties - will not crack or disintegrate over time as most glues do

~ Light weight and Spreads as easy as butter

~ No known Chronic Health Hazards from any of the Ingredients

~ Easy Clean up with Soap and Water

Makes sense

I have been using a water based silicone sealer that I buy at Family Dollar. I also use it to seal limbs. I love it!

Haha! It’s definitely feels like a never ending list of things to buy with reborning. It’s a really great product though, definitely worth it! :grin:


What’s the name of it?

I will take a picture of it in the morning.


I don’t know why I was thinking silicone. It is caulk. I’ve had great success with it.
