The best way to protect your edges is not to try to cover up your natural edges but to customize the wig by trimming it back and using your biological baby hair. We sell edge control where it does not flake or fall off, so by creating baby hairs in the front, and it gives your hairline a natural look. Adding just a little can help the unit look more realistic when installed on your head.

If your wig does not come with clips inside, have some bobby pins in the vicinity to add to the wig to secure it! Wig clips are a better option, but you can use bobby pins when you don't have that option! So here are some simple suggestions click here.

There have been a few times where I have encountered a unit with no type of clip or comb to secure my wig. To be honest, before I realized I could use bobby pins, I would get so nervous that the right gust of wind at the wrong time could blow my wig off of its rightful place, my head.

However, with bobby pins, you can pin the sides of your clipless unit down to your perimeter braid, and rest assured that your wig is stable. Just take two to four bobby pins, pin your braid, and you are together.

I typically do one above each ear and two at the nape of my neck for extra security; because the hair falls over the pins, I do not worry too much about the pins showing and giving away my secret!

WIG TAPE

Wig tape is a great way to secure your wig to secure the wig to your head; it is recommended that you get this type of installation done by a professional hairstylist to avoid traction alopecia in your hairline area. If you have sensitive skin like me then check out this link that give you an array of products to choose from.

THE HOW

Wig tape is attached to the underside of your wig and around the hairline, and it is sometimes applied with medical-grade adhesives, giving the wig wearer a more extended and secure hold for up to two weeks. It’s a more scalp-friendly alternative to wig glue. Still, since wig adhesives can irritate a sensitive scalp, we recommend that a skin test should be performed before using,

particularly for those recovering from cancer treatment. However, wig tape is a great way to keep your wig in place while allowing for natural movement. Seek the advice of a licensed professional hair stylist to specialize in wig installation.

THE PROS

Best for hair-free areas, as the tape is double-sided. It could be unpleasant if it adheres to your hair if you have some. That being said, many different types of adhesive removers are available on the market again; we highly recommend you seek guidance from a professional hairstylist.

It easily adheres to polyurethane tabs which some medical wigs may have. If your wigs do not have this, clients have used tapes against a standard cap, which works. For additional wig security, you can add the silicone solution sheet strips to your wig or hairpiece, and the tape will attach on one side to this, one side to the scalp. As briefly mentioned, there are varying strengths, and our clients testify that tape works and is very secure! You will not have to worry about hair flying down the street like tumbleweed. Even when you may be busy, your scalp can get sweaty. A roll of tape will last you a long time! It is good value for money, and if security for an extended period is what you require, then it’s most likely the best way to secure a wig.

 WIG GRIP

The Wig Grip was designed to make wearing a wig more secure, confident, and comfortable during hair loss. It adjusts to body movements, evenly distributes the weight of a wig or hat, and keeps them from slipping. Take a look at our selection of wig grips here

THE PROS

The Wig Grip is phenomenal for alleviating pressure and does provide excellent wig security.

If you want to remove your wig regularly throughout the day, it is perfect as it is easy on and off.

If you wear wig tape all day, you can sometimes find you can get a tension headache. You may find that as the Wig Grip band is s lightweight and durable, it is a very comfortable solution.

WIG CAPS

For those asking how to secure a capless wig, a wig cap may be the perfect solution for you. There are many benefits to wearing a wig cap, guaranteeing that long or short natural hair will stay in place. What’s more, it prevents the natural hair from breaking easily due to friction, creating a safe and sanitized barrier between the wig and scalp, and maintaining the cleanliness of your wig.  Some of our customers love wig caps, and some don’t. It is an entirely personal preference. Thankfully, the wig caps we sell are very purse-friendly. Wig caps don’t just act as a protective barrier between the scalp and your wig, but they are also a tool for keeping your.

hairpiece in place. There are many benefits to using wig caps; more details can be found in our previous post.

THE PROS

Wig Caps hold everything in place and are ideal for shorter and longer natural hair and bare scalps. 

Wig caps can also smooth out the surface underneath a wig, with lumps often caused by the natural hair. As a result of the wig cap, wigs often rest much better on the head, producing a more natural look.

The potential downside of wearing a wig cap is that it can make things hot under your wig, meaning it could cause you to feel the heat and become a little comfortable. Despite this, wig caps are worth a try, as the security and look they provide are excellent but just be aware that they’re not every wig wearer's cup of tea!

WIG CLIPS

Although a well-fitting wig should stay in place without additional wig attachments, you may feel happier using an added security wig attachment, such as wig clips. Wig clips are easy to use and inexpensive to secure your wigs every day.

Once you’ve styled your wig, all your need to do is lift a handful of the top section of the wig and place the clips in to secure the wig around your head. The number of clips and size you need will depend on the style and how secure the wig feels. It’s good to do a few trial runs of securing the wig with clips before wearing your wig out, just so you feel comfortable and confident with where you have placed the clips in place.
