You Need Wear A Wig With Wig Cap
If you're new to wearing wigs, perhaps you are wondering how to wear a wig without a wig cap? Or maybe you are a regular wig-wearer and are curious to know whether a wig cap is for you? Either way, we've taken a look at wig cap vs. no wig cap to help you make an informed decision!
Benefits of a Wig Cap
Some ladies find wig caps to be advantageous as a protective barrier to their scalp. Particularly for ladies with total hair loss, a wig cap can protect a sensitive scalp that can become irritated from a wig being worn directly on the head. As a result, wig caps can make wig-wearing more comfortable!
When a wig is placed straight onto a bare scalp, it can sometimes slip throughout the day. In such cases, a wig cap can be an effective way of keeping a wig in place throughout wear. A wig cap provides a layer of friction against the wig, helping it to grip and making it particularly beneficial for ladies with total hair loss. For some, a wig cap provides them with confidence that their lovely wig is going to stay in place throughout the day!
In addition to this, wig caps can also be beneficial for wig-wearers who have partial or no hair loss. A cap can be a brilliant way of keeping hair in place underneath a wig, allowing wearers to be able to enjoy their wig without having
to worry about their own hair having a mind of its own! And while keeping hair in place, a wig cap also smooths out any unwanted bumps caused by natural hair underneath a wig. This allows a wig to sit much better on the head and produces a lovely natural look.
Downsides of a Wig Cap
Although a wig cap can be beneficial to some, it can provide no benefit to others. We have found that some of our customers become a little too hot while wearing a wig cap, as it essentially acts as an extra layer underneath the wig.
This extra heat can make wig-wearing uncomfortable and cause sweating – particularly for those wearing a wig and wig cap for a long period of time! If you tend to get warm when wearing a wig.
Although wig caps are usually a one-size fits all, some wig-wearers find that a wig cap feels too tight underneath the wig. This tightness can result in a headache after long periods of time. For ladies experiencing this, we suggest that they are better off wearing a wig without a wig cap for a more comfortable wig-wearing experience.
If you're wondering how to wear a wig without a wig cap, use the same technique to put the wig on as you would with a wig cap. Make sure your scalp is clean before putting the wig on and, if you have natural hair, try braiding or
twisting it to flatten it as much as possible and avoid any bumps under the wig.
Wig Cap MaterialsOur most popular wig cap is made from nylon. If your head or hair is slippery, the nylon will give your wig something to grip onto and keep it from sliding. If you have hair, you can tuck this into the cap to keep it from protruding.
Wig caps with a mesh-like construction allow the scalp to breathe during wig wear, which is particularly beneficial if a wig is being worn for long periods of time. As well as this, the mesh construction is great at keeping natural hair
Wig caps can come in various fabrics, one of which is cotton. We advise ladies with partial or no hair loss to be wary of this material as cotton is a very good absorbent. A cotton wig cap can, therefore, draw the moisture out of your
natural hair, causing it to become quite dry. As well as this, cotton is known to be abrasive and so can damage your natural hair even further.
And there you have it, the key pros and cons of wig caps experienced by wig-wearers!
Generally, we've found that it's entirely dependent on personal preference. Some wig-wearers get on really well with wig caps and find that wearing a wig is much more comfortable when wearing one. On the other hand, some ladies
struggle to wear a wig cap without it feeling too tight and warm. If you’re unsure, wig caps can cost little money and so you might decide to give one a try before making a decision.
