One of the biggest fears of wig wearers are wigs getting blown off, falling off, or sliding around. How embarrassing that would be! But luckily, that rarely happens nowadays because of different ways to secure a wig. Here are ways to secure your wig:
1. Wig tape. A double-sided wig tape is suitable for those who no longer have hair. This will tape the wig onto your scalp and prevent it from sliding around. Cleanse your scalp and hairline using a cotton soaked with alcohol to remove dirt and oil. If you have sensitive skin, apply a liquid band-aid below the hairline to prevent the tape from irritating your skin.
2. Grip or gel band. Grip or gel bands are like headbands that holds your wig in place. These prevent the wig from slipping off.
3. Wig cap. This secures your natural hair while also keeping your wig in place. Wig caps are generally made of mesh, polyester, or nylon. You can use this whether you have natural hair or not. Nylon is recommended for women with short hair while mesh is best for long hair because it works better at gathering and flattening hair.
4. Wig glue. Wig can be glued to your scalp. This is a type of adhesive that can be used on the scalp. It is not recommended if you still have natural hair. It is strong enough to rip at your skin, so be careful to apply the right amount of water or solution when you take the wig off.
I recommend a combination of Got2b glue, elastic straps and clip combs to further secure your wig. I anchor these clips combs onto the braids for added security. Bobby pins are also another option.
