Comfort and Confidence

The series that will inform, educate and empower you to choose a wig or not – based on facts not fear. We are well underway; having covered things like is a wig right for you, materials, construction, color, insurance, shopping suggestions and more. Now we will discuss ways to make your wig wearing a more comfortable and confidant one.


When it comes to wigs comfort is key, not just in the feel but also the fit. Here are my top tips for keeping a calm head when wigging out.


Staying put

One of the chief concerns in wearing a wig is if it will give you the slip, or come off all together. For this there are a few great solutions.


Built-in Security

Most wigs have adjusters underneath- some are designed much like bra hooks – to help with a more secure fit.


Supporting Addition

There are several manufacturers that make a wig-gripping head band. This band is adjustable and has fabric designed to help make the wig feel more secure. You can wear this alone or with a stocking cap. (A stocking cap is a nylon cap designed to keep your own hair in place or protect your bare scalp from the under-side of the wig).


An easy solution

Bobby pins can be great for securing wigs. Place a pair of bobby pins on either side of the wig, hiding them just above the ears. Secure the wig by sliding each pin through the wig and wig cap.


NOTE: Wig tape and other adhesives are not recommended for persons receiving chemotherapy, as the skin sensitive at this time and the wearing and daily removal may cause irritation. Instead try a wig gripper designed to help keep your wig in place.


Feeling Pressure?

There maybe a few points around the wig that feel tight or less comfortable. Try enlisting a few pieces of cotton underneath the wig cap. Cotton is soft, flexible and absorbent.


Breeze through this

Want a stylish way to block out the wind? Use a colorful scarf to help keep your wig from getting winded. You can use a scarf alone or with a couple well placed bobby pins to help keep your wig smooth and secure.


A smile is a gift to the giver and receiver
