Help! My Wig Keeps Shedding!

This is an issue that all wig wearers will eventually encounter. I will say all wigs will shed to some degree in the beginning. With wear, the wig will experience shedding also as the knotting of the hair fibers becomes loose on the cap and eventually unravels. I recommend giving the wig a good shake and comb (be sure to use a wide-tooth comb!). Also, washing will help with both the shedding and frizz! The best way I've found to combat static, friz, and shedding is to was your wig in some cool/lukewarm water with about a 1/4-1/3 cap of your favorite fabric softener (or Woolite if you're sensitive!) This helps "condition" the fibers and I've even had some of the scraggliest wigs come out looking tons better! A good silicone spray like Simply Stylin or Envy's Renew and Repair will help too! I hope this information has been helpful to you!

We have had clients write in stating that they have cut the nape felt off completely with enough space for the adjusters and they said the wig fit much better in the back.

What do you mean when you say in your videos that a wig has a "natural amount of volume"?

These thinner wigs also tend to appeal to folks (like me) who have gradual profound hair loss over a long period of time. My hair started falling out in clumps when I was 17. Because of this, I used to feel very self-conscious when I began wearing wigs for the first time, because I went from virtually no hair to – BOOM – <em>lots</em> of hair. It felt hot, heavy, and unnatural . . . but over time, I began to realize that, because of my size, these more voluminous styles actually looked the best on me.
