Kathy. Congratulations on taking the step. It is scary and one has to think about it a long time. It is an investment and sort of a life syle choice.

If you go on line to one of the wig for instance, you should find a sections on accessories. They usually have different types of caplets to wear under the wig. Some of lightweight and some are heavier.

I had gone looking for wig sites and in my searching I ran across an article by Oprah about wig sitters. She gave 3 of what she felt were the best wig sites. She had dealt with them and had some of them on her show. One of them is the that is mentioned on this thread. She said that she seldom endorses anything but wigs have become so important that she wanted to share that information.

The first wig I ordered was a dud and I hope to find someone to give it to or sell it. The one that I wear is from a little shop some miles from me. She doesn't have a huge collection but it is good for me to be able to try on. I had tried on 3 wigs and she left the room and came back with another one...I put it on....and we both said "thats the one". It just fit my hairstyle and the speckled grey, white and darker brown. Some day I plan to order one that a little "wilder" and fun and on sale. I got my hair cut short and it turned out better that I thought it would so I don't wear the wig all the time. Nice to have the good stele sitting and waiting.

Now, I have to go on to the next item on my list. I need to get a hearing aid or some type of device before I am totally deaf. I will have to take some days and shop around. Everything I need to do to get me up and running cost money. Shucks!!Take care folks. Irish

My hair dresser trimmed up my wig and she really liked it!  The hair color is not that far off from my own.  So I?m feeling more confident! 

Thanks so much for giving me the courage🤗. I haven?t worn it anywhere but I?ll let you know what people think.  Have a good weekend.

Good for you, Kathy.  Once you get that first wear in public over with, you’ll feel great ????????
Your friends will love it and the people who don’t know you will not even notice!  Or just notice your hair looks wonderful.
