Started Feb 25 0 Replies

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

Thinning out synthetic wigs

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.  One wig is layered so it's the ends of the layers that look a bit frizzy or frazzled.  it's NOT bad and it probably just looks like hair…See More

"Try the wig caps from Sally's. They are 2 in a package for $1.19. My daughter uses double sided tape from Hair Direct, SUPERTAPE. She places the tape on the ear tabs and the front Poly strip. She then places her cap on her head and the puts on…"

"You might need to experiment with different types of caps -- this particular one might just be a little too loose of you.  Does your local wig shop have anyone there who repairs wigs?  If yes, that person may able to revise the wig cap a…"

"Go to Wigs.com and look at Headline It and Beautimark or https://www.wilshirewigs.com/accessories/wig-caps.html (comfy grip, etc.) - the liner/grip items may help.   Also depends on what type of cap you're wearing (cotton or nylon)…"

Wig cap

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 hair line like it's ready to pop off.  See More

"Took my two new wigs in to my stylist today and she thinned them out as there was too much hair on them.  She adjusted the one I was concerned about being too big and it fits well.  YAY, I don't have to return it.  It does bunch…"

"I'll check it out.  Yes, I do have the adjustable velcro tabs at the nape and have messed around with those.  I just didn't know what to do with those little metal ones up by temples.  "

Stacie replied to mustang1's discussion Wig too big?
"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…"

"what's with those ear tabs?  I keep reading about them.  I feel them on both wigs.  Are they adjustable??"

Stacie replied to mustang1's discussion Wig too big?
"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…"

mustang1 replied to mustang1's discussion Wig too big?
"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.…"

Stacie replied to mustang1's discussion Wig too big?
"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.…"
