Wig Cap.. Why Wear A Wig Cap Underneath Your Wig?

Do you wear a wig cap under your wig?

Yes? No?. For what reason would you want to wear one?

When talking about wig caps we need to understand what it is that we are actually talking about.

Should I Wear A Wig Cap?

You would wear a wig cap underneath your wig.


There are no rules to say that you have to wear one underneath your wig. If you’re wearing a wig all day everyday then you want the wig to sit comfortably on your head and also for the wig to look natural.  A wig cap may help you to achieve this.

Wig caps are very modestly prices, a pack of 2 wig caps is only £2.65, so you can try it and see if they suit you.

There are two types of people who would wear a wig and would consider wearing a wig cap.

People who suffer from complete hair loss:

Advantages of wearing a wig cap:

By not wearing one you will find that your head is itchy as the wig is rubbing/sitting directly onto your skin. Especially if you are wearing a machine made weft wig. By wearing a wig cap your head has a barrier between your skin and the wig, which then means not itchiness on the scalp.

Another benefit is that it reduces the risk of the wig slipping on your head. It acts as friction for the wig to stay in place, as opposed to the wig sitting on your scalp and sliding around on your smooth scalp.

People who suffer have hair:

Advantages of wearing a wig cap:

Without wearing a wig cap under your wig if you have hair can make the wig look lumpy and not sit right on your head. When you have hair a wig cap helps to keep your hair flat under the wig. This allows the wig to sit and look natural on your head.

The disadvantages of wearing a wig cap:

The disadvantages are the same as the one for total hair loss suffers. You may find that your head is warm under your wig. Not all wig wears suffer from this and you’ll only know by wearing a wig cap.

How To Put On Wig Cap

You can either plait your hair in two ponytails, if you hair is long. Then bend the ponytail back to your scalp and secure it using kirby or bobby pins.

If you have long hair you would put the wig cap on starting from the back of the head. This is a method advised by some of our customers, however you do need to find a method that suits you.

Once you have the wig cap covering your whole head push any errant strands of hair underneath the wig cap.Make sure that it doesn’t sit to far forward of your own hairline as it may show underneath the wig you are wearing.
