Headaches and Hair Covering

  1. I usually will take the pony out and use a very soft headcovering…not a tighter one. My hats are also a lot looser. But the wigs? No way. I actually wore a pretied to Shabbat morning once because I knew I couldn’t sit that long in a tight banded fall without getting a migraine.

  2. Wish I could comment on this one. I got nuttin’.

    If your wig is not comfortable it means that it is not the right fit for you or it’s the wrong scalp size. An experienced shaitel macher will be able to fit you properly. Also, don’t wear a ponytail under a wig, use big clips to clip your hair up (hard to explain here, I will show you if you would like.) A ponytail drags the wig down giving you pressure on the comb and yes, headaches!

      i sometimes wear a hairnet when i have to wear a sheitel – like for a wedding or something – and i have a headache. it does reduce the pull.

    Is that similar to the “doo rag” like black people wear? They sell that at Limage (hair and makeup place at wesley kosher). I would think those things together with a wig would make one very hot though.

    sorry… that’s all I’ve got.
    Oh, and I’m also a proponent of the clips as opposed to the pony tail.

    I know some people keep their hair short so it will be more comfy to wear a wig.

    • hadassahsabo says:

      i would cut it short, but certain people may have an objection or two…;)

      • Lady Lock and Load says:

        Oh, so don’t cut it short but use clips to put it up so it is more comfy and you don’t have a bump in the back of your shaitel.
        When I go through airport security I have a problem sometimes cause my clips make the buzzer go off so I put my hair in a pony (under the shaitel) to get through security. I Hate the way it feels and put it back in clips as soon as I am able to reach a ladies room to put my clips in.

    This is why I use wig caps. No tugging, no pressure. It gathers all the hair to the top of the head. No bumps in the back from the pony and I can wear a short hair sheitel with nothing showing.

    BTW, I think it’s adorable that your accent is so strong on the video!!
