What is the best way to reattach my sagging headliner?

My headliner is sagging in several spots around the edges, I can get to it easily enough, but what is the best type of glue to use? Thanks.

re-glue it?

here's a good write-up on cleaning and reglueing an sec headliner

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/chwilka/drooping_headliner_repair.htm

Mine has gotten so bad that I'm not going to bother trying to fix it. I've got an appointment to have it replaced at an upholstery shop. 375 dollars for a new headliner and sunroof cloth.

There are kits you can get online to replace it, but finding the right coloer and what not can be troublesome. Also, the vinyl strip on the back of our headliners is pretty unique, i doubt you'd find a kit that includes one.
