Everyone seems to recommend Fudge Cement, but it appears to be discontinued.
So, what would be an alternate recommendation in the USA?

As Gato stated. Got2b Glue., But I would buy the gel for the body and the Spray for the head. These are easy to spot as they are labeled Yellow. The have a Black Label called Extreme, has the same consistency as Fudge Cement. But the Yellow has a nice flow to it and is not brittle as most gels get when moving around.

Thank you! I have an extreme hold hairspray, but my hair falls out when I bend over. Another Chewie recommended brown Bobbie pins, but I’m not sure how to use those Razz

The trick to prevent Hair from flaying is to trim it with a layered approach. (YouTube has some great Hair Styling videos) much like bangs on human Hair.

Get a pair of sheering scissors and take the top two layers and cut at a 90 degree angle. You don’t want go any further then the second layer. Then take Got2b Glue hairspray and apply in layers as well. Bottom layer then out. I would stay away from gel on the Face and on the top of the Head as the consistency is too thick.

Don’t want a Flat Headed Wookie.
