Thinking about a wig

    I'm getting very apprehensive about my hair, I seem to need to check the mirror several times a day! Am I the only one that does this?? I can't seem to face the prospect of the time when I would colour my hair, and how it would look, and how many I would lose in the process! So, if I take the plunge with a wig, how do I make sure it stays in place - when out and about - with the wind etc., and how do I cope when for example see a dentist - when the chair goes back horizontal and he's right up close!?? Appreciate, any comments - for how you cope when out and about with it.

    buy cheap first.

    Find a small beauty supply shop in the less expensive areas of town. Suburban wig shops will Rob u. I originally paid $450 got a wig that's the same quality that I pay $30 for now. It is, quite frankly, the areas where more African Americans live that generally have good wigs for cheap. Go in and Try some on. It can't hurt. All it generally costs Is $1 for a wig cap for sanitary reasons. I suggest u try at least one lace front and mono filament. If u find one u like you can buy it for $20-$30 and Try wearing it around the house. They are amazing at staying in place with Combs placed inside. You can also purchase and sew in additional Combs that also snap unto your hair like a barrette.

    Thanks for the reply, however - there are no Afro-Americans here, much less shops specialising in their wigs.

    Visited a hairdressing salon recently - owned by a Cypriot - ordered one for £220, but the wrong colour came! And then hey anted paying first for a second one! His comment about being charged £50 for returns wasn't credible.
    Went to a hair piece place - but £1200.00 was extortionate!!

    Yet, finding it difficult to cope in the meantime - just don't see the point anymore!

    wow. um.. you could order online. For under £30 u can go to hairsisiers.com or many other sites and purchase a freetress equal wig. I wear the synthetic lace front and i love them.
     
  5. I know how you feel about not having hair places available to walk into and try things on. Right now, I'm stationed in Okinawa Japan and they don't have ANY wig shops! :( it's hard not being able to try things on before you buy them. I suggest you keep trying things out online. I've used fairywigs.com in the past and have been pretty happy with the results. I've never gotten the wrong color or size from them, it's just taken them a while as far as shipping! PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP!

    I use a clip on topper and my dentist keeps forgetting I have it even though I have told her. You might not need a full wig but something to clip on top of your hair. A local salon has some but I got way better quality when I saw Dov in New York City. Not cheap but lasts for a long time. Maybe find out where women who are getting chemo go to get hair replacement?
