I'm having some problems keeping the wig cap on. The net that goes on head before wig. It hasn't come off but I have not worn my wig yet for very long. When I take my wig off, the cap is way past my…Continue
I'm new to wigs. Having hair loss from hormone issues. I got one that I just love. It's a synthetic. I wear a wig cap and when I put the wig on, there is room between my scalp and the wig cap.…Continue
I have two synthetic wigs. Both had a TON of hair on them, making my head look funny. I'm small and my head is petite. So they looked like I had mops on my head. I took them to my stylist who is familiar with wigs because of her cancer patients she gets. She thinned them out. So they look much better on me but I can tell the ends look a bit frazzled.

"They should be and normally are. There's bendable metal inside the materials at the point of the wig that comes just in front of your ears. There are typically also adjustable tabs at the back of the wig (nape of your neck) that involve elastic…"
"Okay, good -- I'm glad it's comfortable at least! That's the biggest thing. You and your stylist might want to adjust the ear tabs and elastic tabs to see if that helps with the extra room. But if you're comfy…"
"It's actually comfortable but I haven't worn it for very long because I'm not sure if I need to take it back. I'm going into my stylist tomorrow to have another wig thinned out and I'm going to ask her what she thinks.…"
"It's all a matter of personal comfort. If the space doesn't bother you and doesn't look bubbly on top of your head, then no worries. If the space bothers you or looks strange, you may want to try a smaller wig size.…"
