How to Keep your Wig on Without Glue
Not knowing if a gust of wind, or wrong move, will lead to you losing your wig is stressful. Maybe you’re without glue, or want to secure your big without applying harmful chemicals to your face.
Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure a good fit for your wig, no glue required.
Proper Head Measurement
Ensure the proper fit of your wig by measuring your head at three different locations.
The first measurement to take to ensure a snug fit for your wig is the circumference of your head. To measure the circumference of your head, wrap the measuring tape from the center of your forehead around the back of your head to the front.
The second measurement to take to ensure a snug fit for your wig is from the front of the head to the nape of your neck. To take this measurement, place the measuring tape at the center of your forehead over the top of your head to the rear of your head where your hairline ends.
The last measurement is from ear to ear. Measure from ear to ear ensuring that the tape is on your hairline.
These three measurements ensure that the wig sits on your head properly.
The proper attachments further secure your wig.
When we say attachments, we mean combs and elastic bands added to the wig cap.
Combs, are just that, tiny combs attached to the wig cap. Depending on the hairstyle, your wig cap should contain five to eight combs. These combs are placed around the perimeter of your wig for secure attachment.
An elastic band is added security for your wig. It’s positioned at the nape of your neck, on the wig cap from ear to ear.
Hairstyling underneath your wig is another way to ensure a proper fit. If you have hair, either twist or braid the hair flat to your head underneath your wig. Twisted or cornrowed hair provides a grip for your wig.
If you’re without hair, secure your wig by placing the combs underneath the elastic band.
Hopefully, these tips were helpful for you, and provide ways for you to attach your wig without glue. Following some or all, of these steps, will help keep your wig in place and help you feel confident when wearing your wig out in public.
