hairToday’s post is really just a link to a post.

After all, if another blogger puts up a terrific post on a subject I feel strongly about, why re-invent the wheel?

Thus without further ado, I invite you to go check out:

milli3Well, sometimes things work out better than you could have imagined. That was definitely the case after I wrote my post on Securing Headcoverings!

I discovered a lovely online store called the Millinery Shop.

Like many places, they offer a wig grip product:

Slipproofit! This SLIP-NOT WIG GRIP band is worn directly on your head under a hat pretied, scarf or wig. The crushed velour material holds everything in place. No more will your WIG -HAT – SCARF – PRETIED BANDANA slide back. This Velour item is extremely comfortable to wear with an adjustable velcro closure in the back.

But they have several wonderful differences from “many places.”

If you’re inclined, they offer fantastic wholesale discounts for volume purchases. Since their prices are already quite low, I imagine this would be a terrific business opportunity.

But more important for the rest of us: They produce their own merchandise, so they can make it however they need to!

This means that their products – including the wig grip – are offered in a fantastic variety of sizes. It also means that they can offer customization if needed.


The Slip-Not Wig Grip, for example, has options for fabric (velour or cotton/velour), color (black, brown, champagne), and size (S, M , L, XL).

And look at all the other stuff they offer: from their array of pre-tied bandannas, snoods, hats, and other headcoverings, to gloves, iron-on accessories, and more.
As you know from my prior post, size is a problem for me. However with this variety, I found myself with an overabundance of choices! At 24″ head circumference, it looked like I could easily use either a Large or an Extra Large!

They were kind enough to send me both – and they are, in fact, both comfortably usable! And even doing a crazy hybrid of wearing a tichel and having it back off my forehead a bit, they held the slippery scarf in place solidly.

I will definitely be shopping more for myself at the Millinery Shop, and I recommend it to you enthusiastically.

wig grip
I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before: I am 6’2″, so everything about me is just bigger in proportion – including my head circumference.

I can’t wear ready-made headbands and such because they are always too small. And the wig grip I got recently is no exception. It adjusts with velcro, but seems to go from “normal” DOWNWARDS to “small”, rather than larger.


I wear snappy clips or hairpins to hold my coverings in place now, but I would like to expand to some tichel or other scarf styles that don’t allow for that. (And they slip around too much without it – I did try!)

What type of coverings do you wear? How do you secure your coverings?
