How to Safely Secure Your Wig Properly

How to Safely Secure Your Wig Properly

Wigs falling off, sliding off, getting ripped off, or blowing off is the number one fear of many wig wearers all around the world.

It is a well-known fact that a woman wearing a wig is afraid of her wig falling off, especially in public. Who can blame her? Wigs falling off, sliding off, getting ripped off, or blowing off is the number one fear of many wig wearers all around the world. Learning how to secure your wig the right way will make you much more confident while you wear your wig. But there is more than one way to secure a wig, and not all methods work the same for everyone. This helpful guide will take you through some of the best ways to secure your wig.

Wig Tape

Before we discuss wig tape, know if you wear a wig on top of your natural hair, then you should never use wig tape. This only applies to those ladies who have experienced female hair loss, whether from cancer or alopecia areata. Wig tape can rip out hairs once you remove it. While it is true that wig tape is one of the best ways of securing a wig, it is not worth the damage to any existing hair you do have. Wig tape makes your wig very, very secure. If you work out while wearing a wig or are attending a big event, wig tape will take out any worry of wearing a wig.

Wig Caps

Wig caps are excellent for those who have hair or those that don’t. Wig caps sit on the top of your head underneath your wig and grip to your skin on the inside layer. There are three main kinds of caps, and these are nylon wig caps, mesh wig caps, and wig grip caps. Nylon wig caps are ideal for women with shorter hair or no hair at all because they provide a smooth surface against your skin. Mesh wig caps are ideal for women with longer hair because they’re excellent at flattening and collecting longer hairs. And lastly, wig grip caps are best for women who like the overall security of wig grips, but have more sensitive skin and need a layer of protection between their wig and their skin.

Wig Glue

Just like with wig tape, wig glue should only be used with those who have no hair. Wig glue is an extremely vital method of wig attachment, and you could possibly rip out hairs once you remove it. It is a roll-on adhesive that is clear and will not leave any stains.
