The Different Types of Wig Caps
Capless is one of the most common types of wigs. The base of any wig is referred to as a cap. The hair is attached to the wig cap using a variety of techniques to achieve different looks. On most wigs, hair is attached in "wefts." These are strips of hair doubled over and sewn closely together in long strands.Monofilament caps use a gauze-like, nearly transparent material that each hair section is hand-knotted onto. This kind of wig can be styled more easily and can ventilate your scalp to avoid heat and moisture buildup. The thin cap material is difficult to detect and therefore very natural-looking. Monofilament wigs are specially designed for those with thinner hair or sensitive skin.
Lace wigs use a piece of mesh lace just beyond the front hairline of the wig, which each hair section is attached to. These can be temporarily glued to the skin around the hairline to make the lace cap nearly invisible. Mesh lace allows for natural-looking partings in the hair, as well as weeks of wear at a time, even during swimming or sports. All lace wigs need periodic maintenance and can last for six months or longer.
There are two types of lace wigs: front lace and full lace :
Full lace wigs have lace material all around and can be parted anywhere on the scalp for greater breathability and comfort.
Front lace wigs have lace material at the forehead only and are more natural and undetectable. Unfortunately, these wigs cannot be pulled back into a ponytail.
