Wig without clips/combs?

January 22, 2013

Question by M.B.

I am a 44 year old professional and mother of six who does not yet cover my hair full time and have never worn or bought a sheitel. The biggest thing standing in my way about that decision are the fact that my fine curly hair is already thin and easily subject to damage without adding the stress of wig attachments to it. (Every woman I know who wears a sheitel admits to hair thinning, bald spots, etc. as a result.) Do you have any words of wisdom for me regarding wigs for people who do care about their own sensitive, easily damaged hair?

This is such a complicated process for a first timer, that it can’t be answered in one post, but the first step is to make sure you’re ready to commit to it. Otherwise you may resent the wig for as long as it lasts. My second recomendation to you is to disregard your friends experiences as far as their individual hair issues, because no two women are the same and their wig experiences can vary greatly. Collect their opinions on who to trust with your delicate situation and sensitive hair, but then get a complete consultaion and fitting with no preconceived notions. It may turn out that you will be the most comfortable with lots of clips and combs to distribute the weight of the wig even ly throughout your head, and you wont know until you’re wearing it on a consistent basis.
