Will my wig blow off in the wind?
The short answer to the question is no.
No matter how many times you have worn a wig, you probably still have a fear of it coming off your head. Wigs blowing off, sliding off or falling has become the number one fear among women worldwide. But we also know that this issue should never happen as long as your wig fits properly. However, a wig that’s too snug could pop off, and a wig that’s too loose could slide off.
How to Measure Your Head for a Wig
Find the right size wig for your head will help your wig look more natural, it will also get your wig more secure. It is easy to figure out.
To measure a cap that fits your head like a glove, get a soft measuring tape and make sure your hair is styled flat for accuracy. Use the tape to measure your head's circumference, the distance from hairline to nape, ear to ear (across the crown), and temple to temple (looping the tape around the back of the head). See the video below for how to measure your head for wigs.
How to Keep Your Wig from Slipping
Well, with a properly sized wig, you may still feel worried. You may fell the included adjustable straps are not enough for securing your wig.
Whether you are a seasoned wig wearer or are picking out your first wig, it is important to know how to keep your wig from slipping. Here, MildWild Wigs will guide you on the various techniques and tools you can use to secure your wig.
Solution 1: Wig Grip
Wig grips are one of the most popular and effective methods that help you when discovering how to keep your wig in place all day. Those with or without natural hair can wear them. A wig grip is similar to a headband and is usually made of velvet on both sides. They are designed to grip your hair, skin or wig cap from one side, and your wig from the other.
Solution 2: Wig Cap
Wearing a wig cap is a great foundational tool that will help to keep your wig from slipping, especially when used in conjunction with other methods. What’s more, it prevents the natural hair from breaking easily due from friction, creating a safe and sanitised barrier between the wig and scalp, maintaining the cleanliness of your wig.
Wig caps don’t just act a protective barrier between the scalp and your wig, they are also the perfect tool for helping keep your wig in place. You will find a variety of materials: mesh, nylon, cotton, etc.
Solution 3: Wig Tape
Wig tape has also become a popular choice for keeping your wig from slipping. While it's true that wig tape is one of the most effective methods of securing a wig, it's not worth the damage to any existing hair you have.
So if you still have hair on your head and you're worried about hair loss, move on to the next method.
Wig tape is attached to the underside of your wig, giving a secure and comfortable bond to your scalp.
Solution 4: Wig Glue
As with wig tape, wig glue is an extremely secure method of wig attachment, and you could potentially rip out hairs when you remove it. If you have hair or sensitive skin, avoid wig glue.
Wig glue is a roll-on adhesive that is clear and won't leave stains. Wig glue is easily removed with water and is pliable (it will move with your skin rather than staying stiff in one area).
As a bonus, you can use your wig glue to secure other things, like pantyhose, socks, nylons, shoulder straps, or orthopedic devices.
Solution 5: Bobby Pins
Bobby pins are used to deliver extra security into the hair wig. You can lift some of the hair you have and then stick a few bobby pins. It is also possible for you to apply bobby pins from outside the wig, especially near your temples.
