Hush Hairloss - Wigs and hairpieces Aberdeenshire

"Will it stay on?"

This is a question I am often asked about hairpiece toppers and wigs. I have not had a bad experience with my own hairpiece or wigs, even in the worst windy weather.

However, this is where size and attachment makes all the difference for a wig. If your wig is too big for you then you will - in general - experience a lot of issues with keeping the wig in the right spot. At the same time, if the wig is too tight you might feel a lot of pressure around your head and may even experience headaches. You can use the adjustment straps at the base of the wig to adjust the size. If this does not solve the issue, then consider either a Large, Small/Petite or even a Children's size.

You can also attach the wig to your own hair using snap clips, or otherwise use wig tape or glue. I prefer investing in the right cap. A cap can have built-in defences against slippage. Non-slip strips can be at the front of the wig, or - for wigs that cater for full hair loss - can have strategically placed strips to provide protection against slippage. These are built into the cap so do not need any glue or wig tape. However, if you want to use wig tape, you can still do that too.

Also use the hair you have. A very short cut can help provide extra grip for the wig, if needed. From my personal experience I have found that really short hair provides better grip than long hair. And I also prefer not to wear a wig cap, as they tend to either give me a headache or slip off. This is my personal experience though, and you maye find others that cannot wear a wig without a cap.

Hairpiece toppers are less concerned with size, but make sure you have enough "grippage" space. That is, where the clips are attached to the base, do you have enough hair for a snap clip to provide a secure grip? Or do you need the extra security of wig tape? The base size should be part of your decision making process.

All the best!
