One of the biggest concerns for women or men who wear wigs is the fear of the unsecured wig shifting or blown away by high wind in public. It's well worth fear, I must say. It's usually the inside of the wig that will determine the security of how that wig stays on your head. Remember, not all wigs are created equally; some are made with full lace, lace front, closures, transparent lace, and HD full lace. When you receive your wig, take it out of the packaging and look at the inside of the wig. You would see 2 or 4 hook combs, a rubber band, and an adjustable strap inside the wig. Some wig companies give free wig caps, or you can buy one from a wig store near you. These security features help you secure your glue less wigs or glue less braided wigs to satisfaction.
''Let's talk about each wig's security features and how to use them.''
A wig cap is a latex-like or socks-like material worn on the head before wearing a wig. A cap less wig (also known as a weft or open cap wig) is one of the most common wig caps, used and loved by many wig wearers. The cap construction is made from wefts sewn together, with space between each weft for breathability and comfort.
A wig cap comes in all shades and colors, which can confuse beginners. I'll say is never worry about the colors because no one sees them but you. A wig cap measurement is also the default way to determine what sizes of the wig to purchase. To choose the proper cap size for your head, take a measuring tape and measure the circumference of your head from one ear, all the way around past the other ear and back to the starting ear. To be accurate, get someone to help you measure your head.
Wig Cap Sizes
The small-cap ranges from 19.5 to 20.5
Medium cap sizes range from 21.5 to 22.5
Large-cap sizes range from 22.5 to 23.5
Extra-large size is 24.
The securing approach is the same whether your wig has two hook combs or four hook combs. The hook combs are usually located in four corners of the wig or the front and backside of the wig. Put on your wig cap, map your hairline area, and lay your wig on your head. Look for the ear tap and position the wig appropriately in front of a mirror. Use your hand to feel and find where the combs are. Once you find the combs, press each hook combs down on your hair like you are trying to hook something until you catch an area under the wig cap.
ADJUSTABLE STRAP-ON CLIP
After you have laid your wig down and hooked combs, use your hand and find the adjustable strap click, it's usually at the bed of the wig. Adjust it to suit your need. Don't adjust it too tight; otherwise, you may have a headache.
Pull the rubber band backward until it holds the back of your head. After that, adjust your wig a little bit in front of a mirror so that it looks right and you are ready to go your merry way feeling secure.
