    How to make sure your wig is secure for longer

    Securing your wig

    The type of wig you buy will determine the best method for keeping it in place. To ensure a snug and comfortable fit, many high-end wigs incorporate special wig attachments into their design.

    Keep in mind that the wig you buy will determine the level of safety it offers. Features may vary depending on the wig style. There is often a non-slip poly strip at the front of the wig, right where your hairline would be, on many styles of wigs. This location creates a little suction, thus the strips are great for keeping your wig in place. Wigs typically have draw straps that can be adjusted to ensure a snug, comfortable fit. These can be found near the nape of the neck and typically have about an inch of give, allowing the wig to be easily loosened or tightened to accommodate a variety of head sizes.

    If you want your wig to stay in place no matter what accessories you use, it's ideal to start with a high-quality wig from a trusted brand.

    Why your wig could be sliding back

    The wig is not properly adjusted and installed

    An ill-fitting wig is one of the most common causes of wig slippage. A wig should always be simple to put on and have a flawless fit, yet you should never have to force it onto your head. Keep in mind that it should never be too loose for your head.

    Not secure enough

    Like so many things, the key to success is a good foundation. Having a clean, dry head will make it much easier to apply your wig and secure it. Make sure your own hair is tight to the your scalp so that no bumps or hairs show through while you wear a wig.

    If you wear a wig and have long hair, the recommendation is to make cornrows or to use a wig cap. To style short hair, simply brush it back from the hairline and secure it in place at the nape.

    Choose the right method

    The wig grip is a common method of holding a device in place. It's simple to use and does a great job of preventing the wig from falling off. It may be used with a full wig or a lace frontal, so it's a flexible choice for anyone's hair situation.

    Wigs can be secured in place with nothing more sophisticated than the trusty old hair clip or bobby pin. If the unit does not already have clips attached, or if you just need to make a few last-minute adjustments, a pack of bobby pins is a must-have for women with long natural hair. Also, unlike with glue and combs, bobby pins won't cause your hair to pull out of its natural shape.

    Wig clips are highly recommended for a more permanent solution. However, you can always add your own clips to your wig if it doesn't already have them. Putting on a wig is as easy as slipping the clip or comb into your hair. The goal is to hold the hair firmly so it doesn't move. Use caution when adjusting your wig with clips and combs if you have sensitive skin or notice you are losing hair.

    If you're wondering how to keep your capless wig in place, a wig cap could be the answer. Wig caps are useful because they keep hair in place, whether it's long or short. In addition to keeping your wig clean and sanitary, it also protects your real hair from being damaged by friction.

    The Wig Grip was developed to alleviate some of the insecurity and discomfort associated with wearing a wig due to hair loss. It responds to motion, so a wig stays in place without being uncomfortable.

    Adhesives are the way to go if you want a wig that really needs to stay put. Wig glue is designed to be worn for several days, sometimes even a week, to provide continuous support. The glue can be difficult to remove, and it may cause damage to the scalp and hair. Take precautions and perform a skin test before full application to rule out any potential allergies.

    Your own hair is too bulky

    You should put as much thought into how you wear your natural hair underneath the wig as you do the wig itself. To prevent the wig from slipping off your head, you should flatten your hair as much and as evenly as possible before putting it on. This will also help the wig lay more smoothly. You may also braid your own hair.
