Help! Dread Wig too heavy!

Post by PepperDreads » Thu Aug 01, 2013 8:39 am

I just got done making a dread wig out of faux roving, and it's so heavy, the clips in the inside of the cap are causing a bad case of alopecia around my hairline, so bad that I'm forced to wear wigs all the time. I've tried doing a full install, but that was even worse having an undercut/crew cut. All the weight is like transfered to the top of my head, which is hard to deal with :i7: Any advice on how to make it so it won't slip off due to it's fullness and being so heavy would be great. :i2:

Remove some! Sounds like you have filled it out too much. See if you can get rid of some without losing coverage, you need way less in the under layers.

Pics would help us help you :)
