Default V50 Headliner issue

I drive a 2008 V50 and l am having an issue with the headliner becoming loose right by the top of the front windshield on both the driver and passenger sides. I'm not sure if it's because of the extreme heat here in Florida (I don't have access to covered parking) or if it's from the silver heat reflector that I use. Does anyone know how I can remedy this problem before it gets worse?

After a while the whole thing will start sagging as the foam backing lets loose. Volvo tries to keep the toxins to a minimum in their interiors. As a result, I think somethings just don't last as long as the chemical laden stuff.

I replaced the headliner in mu old V50 and now my present V50 need it too. If yours is not too bad yet, you can use a little adhesive to glue it back for now.

I checked prices on paying a shop to do my headliner. $800 to do the entire job, $620 if I bring them the panel instead of them removing and reinstalling. $425 if I remove all the old fabric and foam backing.
