Is your system as secure as it should be, do you feel in anyway nervous about how it is sitting? If the answer is yes, possibly, or maybe, then perhaps its’ not the right size, or it's loose through wear and tear. Drying your system on a block, can sometimes over stretch the system, if not fitted loosely.

Tape or not to tape a wig system is often the question. Well, in my experience I don’t use tape on a day to day basis, because I rely on getting the fit right before I purchase a system. So attention to detail at the fitting stage is an important one, despite whether it is a ready to wear or custom made system.  Always make sure that measurements are taken of your head and that they are taken into consideration when fitting. There are a range of head sizes, which good suppliers will consider during your consultation.

I only wear tape, or any other form of attachment when I play very physical sport, this just gives me security and will avoid any embarrassing moments. So physical sport and perhaps high winds, are the triggers to turn to the different forms of attachments, like double sided tape or other forms of bonding.

Often system wearers get advised to put huge strips of tape around the perimeter of the system, which can be cumbersome, difficult to apply and even messy to maintain. In my opinion, this amount of tape is not needed, not for security reasons. What is important, is establishing the key anchor points on the head, these will be different for each type of hair replacement system. Using a full head wig as an example, the anchor points will be in the centre of the frontal hairline and then both temples. That type of tape secures my system through the toughest and most physical games of netball and other activities such as skiing or sailing.  The final question is how much tape or bonding will I need?  In the case of tape, the size doesn’t need to be bigger than the size of a £2 coin per anchor point. This approach has worked for me for over 30 years, but of course always go with what makes you feel confident and secure.
