KB: What is the difference between polyurethane and silicone in the cap of the wig?

Polyurethane is perfect for adding adhesive to your wig. You can add polyurethane to your wig with these products:
Silicone tends to be kind of gummy, so it adds grip to the interior of the cap to prevent slipping. You can add silicone to your wig with these products:
Please note that neither of these cap features will work particularly well if you are trying to use them over hair. Silicone will only grip if it makes contact with bare skin. Most adhesives that you apply to polyurethane will also only adhere if they make contact with bare skin. These cap features are therefore best suited for individuals with profound hair loss (or shaved heads).

I love the silicon grip in Raquel Welch wigs and I still have hair. My hair is thinning, but it is definitely all over my head. The silicon tracks work great for me. Of course, I put my hair in a ponytail and tuck it up, so the hair that is there doesn’t move around, but the silicon DOES grip on it.
