    What do you think about the velvet headbands?  I have lots of bio hair and the headband seems to really keep the wig in place.  The big thing is getting all the biohair clipped flat or tucked up under the wig.

    Hi there Nola,

    Since my biohair is short I usually don't wear anything under my wigs but when I need to I go for my velvet grip. I personally prefer it over the gel grip. And you are absolutely right about trying to get all the biohair as flat as possible. 

    Heather mentions the grips in the article My wigs always ride up in the back! How do you prevent this?

    "If you DO NOT have any hair at the nape, then you may sincerely want to consider experimenting with grips!  You were the person these were really created for!  Gel grips are light and cool.  Velvet lace grips are nice as well, though they tend to be hotter and heavier than gel grips.  The nice thing about these, though, is that they are soft and tend to have human hair sewn into the front to integrate into your existing wig collection, instantly turning any non-lace front wig into a lace front wig.  Both kinds of grips can help loosey-goosey wigs fit a little better.  They prevent bunching at the nape as well as slippage at the front of the cap."

    I like the look of the gel grips... It goes all the way around the head like a headband, correct?  My problem is I do have a full head of hair... only in the front where I used to have bangs is it balding.  So, I don't think the gel will work for me.  I saw a video that said the gel grips only work on bald heads.  But I think I may have a flat back to my head (I found in another suggestion), and I may just need to sew in clips to all my wigs.

    Yes, it goes all the way around the head but has velcro to attach together and adjust the size. :)

    Gel grips will work for people with bio hair. As with most things, it is a personal preference. 

    Heather also has clips in her wigs. I plan on adding them to mine when I need to extra, extra security.
