Flirt Alert by Raquel Welch
One of the first questions that come to mind when the decision has been made that it is time to purchase a wig is, "Can people tell I am wearing a wig?".† Regardless of what wig fiber you decide on, human hair or synthetic, today's state-of-the-art wig construction gives these wigs a realistic appearance.† Wigs today are made from a much thinner fiber then in the past, thus avoiding a bulky, "wiggy" look.† Our suggestion for most customers with a medical condition, is a synthetic fiber with a monofilament cap construction. Human hair wigs require a professional trimming and styling once it arrives. Human hair wigs also require the same type of maintenance as would natural hair.
The complexity and pressures of dealing with a medical problem and trying to continue looking like yourself, can be difficult.† Our advice to you is to START EARLY!!!!! Wearing a wig is a new experience for you and buying something this personal takes some time.
We have simplified this wig selection process for you.† Below is a step by step guide to help guide you through each decision that you'll have to make, ensuring a result that you are happy with and makes you feel more like yourself again!

- There are numerous different ways that the caps are constructed on today's wigs.† The different caps affect the way the wig can be styled and the comfort needed considering your personal needs.†To ensure comfort there are some key wig cap features to consider.
A lace front has each hair hand tied into a soft lace type material that is softer than the material found on most traditional, basic wig cap constructions. The hand tied technique creates a natural front hairline allowing you to part the hair seamlessly.
DOUBLE MONOFILAMENT TOP
With an extra soft layer that protects the scalp from the hand tied knots of the entire top area, double monofilament cap constructions are more comfortable for those who have a sensitive scalp.
VELVET LINED EAR TABS
Depending upon a particular cap construction, ear tabs which are used to guide the placement of the wig on ones head are usually described as closed, open, or velvet-lined. Velvet lined ear tabs, with their soft material, will prevent itchy irritation.
