I love my wig but it rides up, don't know what to do, tried bobby pins but does not work!

Does it have a built in comb at the base? Or is it the adjustable strap?

Poor but Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is there an adjustment tab in the back of the wig? It might be the wrong size for you. I have seen a device that is supposed to fix this--its like a silicone headband that goes on your head under the wig. I think it is in the wig catalog that the American Cancer Society sends out--you might call them if you can't find it elsewhere.

Are you using a wig cap?

Look on www.paulayoung.com under accessories.  They have head bands with gripper fingers to keep your wig in place

Deep inside me is a skinny woman crying to get out. I can usually shut her up with cookies!!

My oldest daughter is an orthodox Jew and wears a wig all of the time.  Hers never rides up, the wig is expensive made to the circumference of her head.  I think your wig might be too small.

evelyner, what is the reason for an orthodox Jew wearing a wig?

There is a roll on body adhesive called It Stays.  It is water soluable and can be used for a myriad of purposes.  Perhaps a little at the hairline would do the trick.  It can be purchased at medical supply stores.

It sounds like your wig doesn't fit properly.
