Can you use "regular" styling products on a monofilament wig? It won't stay out of my face and I didn't know there was specific products to buy

    Just a reminder about synthetic wigs... DO NOT open the oven while wearing a wig. They may melt! Have you attended the LOOK GOOD, FEEL BETTER program sponsored by the American Cancer Society? http://lookgoodfeelbetter.org/ It is great and lots of fun! They teach you tips for wigs, hats, scarves, makeup. And give you a free make up kit! Good luck with your journey. Keep the questions coming, we are here for you!!!

    There are specially made products if you have a synthetic ( not real hair) wig. You can go to wigs.com or a beauty supply store on your area. The place you got your wig should have the products too.

    I know what you mean I use Bobbie pins like crazy and use a clip to keep it in a twist. I haven't used any products in I think you might be able to use a very light hair spray without alcohol.

    I use hair clips (the same ones I used when I had real hair) to pull it back. I think they look more natural if you play with them a bit - plus it's fun! They do have hairspray for wigs, but I didn't like it.
