If you ever have a problem with your wig slipping, read on for our top solutions!
1. Purchase a wig with an adjustable wig fit you size very well
Most wig caps including lace front caps, glueless full lace caps and monofilament caps often come with this feature. The adjustable straps can be adjusted to make the wig cap up to 1 inch tighter and more secure.
2.Extra elastic wig bands and combs secury your wigs
Essentially you can sew the elastic band into the back of the wig, so it will wrap around your head, many women say this is a very comfortable and easy way to secure their wigs. You can also sew in mini clips or combs to the inside of the cap if your wig didn't come with any. The combs and clips will attach to your hair and stop the wig from sliding. It will take a few minutes to sew these extras in, but it is worth it to prevent wig slippage. Many wigs will come with an elastic wig band and extra clips as extras that you can then sew in.
3. Wig caps provide comfortable feel and protect your skin
For women with sensitive skin and scalps, wig caps provide an extra layer of comfort between the wig and your head. Wigs can feel scratchy, irritating sensitive skin. For women with total hair loss, a wig cap can make wigs feel much more comfortable.
Sweat and oil can build up under wigs throughout the day. If your wig is applied directly to your head with no barrier between those oils and your wig, your wig can slip around. Wig caps work like a base layer of foundation underneath the rest of your makeup: they create a smooth, even surface for what goes on top of it and guarantees that everything will stay firmly in place.
Wig caps can be helpful for women with partial hair loss because caps secure any stray hairs underneath your wig, keeping them in place.
There’s a reason some women look great with bald heads (shoutout to Natalie Portman) and others don’t. Some heads have more lumps and bumps than others. Caps and liners smooth out the surface of your head so that your wig sits naturally on your head, giving an overall smoother appearance.
Wig Caps hold everything in place and are ideal for both shorter and longer natural hair, as well as bare scalps.Wig caps can also smooth out the surface underneath a wig, with lumps often being caused by the natural hair under there. As a result of the wig cap, wigs often rest much better on the head, producing a more natural look.
4. Apply your Lace wig Safely with glue
Glue can last for days if necessary. To apply glue properly, clean the skin around the hairline and where your wig might lay. Then apply a thin layer of glue along the skin, being careful to avoid any hair. Let the glue dry for a few minutes. You can also use a hair dryer to speed up the glue drying. Once the glue feels tacky, press your wig in place and press the edges where the glue is. This will help your wig stay in place without wig slippage.
TOP TIP: CHOOSE A WATER SOLUBLE GLUE SO IT CAN BE EASILY REMOVED WITH WATER WITH NO DAMAGE TO YOUR HAIR.
