How to wear a wig for the first time in 10 steps

Postby RebeccaD on Tue Mar 01, 2016 3:45 pm

Most ladies feel completely daunted by wigs. They have a terrible (and totally untrue) stigma. Instead of it being a fun experience, (as it is for the “normal” population) it can feel terrifying and humiliating. Well, that’s how I felt when I first had to start wearing one. The scariest thing is worrying about what other people will think. The ones that see you regularly and would rather swim with piranha’s then tell them about your hair loss. So here’s how to slip it out there without anyone noticing:

1) Spend some time finding the right one for you, before you need it.

2) Get used to the feel of it, and positioning it at home before you venture outside. You mustn’t fiddle with it in public.

3) Get used to seeing yourself in it.

4) Wear it to places where you don’t know anyone to get your confidence up. As soon as you realise no one is looking you’ll feel much better.

5) Start wearing your natural hair with some lovely hats/headband/accessories so everyone gets used to seeing you look a little different.

6) Then, wear the wig under those accessories that everyone’s got used to seeing you in.

7) Make sure that bad boy is seriously secure. Once you’ve got confidence you’ll be less worried.

8) Act confidently even if you don’t feel it. If you’re acting weird everyone will know instantly something is wrong.

9) Hide under your accessories for as long as you feel needed. Then remove them but keep the wig tied/clipped back for a bit.

10) By now everyone has forgotten what your original hair looked like (or how thin it was) and you’re free to wear it how you choose.

If you are seriously up for a challenge just go for a style completely different to your own (colour and or cut) and everyone will just think you’ve gone for a rad new style.

Thanks for the steps, but I need any herbal remedy for thin hair
