due to medical reasons alot of my hair has fallen out, and is very thin....my bf bought me a lace wig about 2 weeks ago i tried it on and everything but i think a nude wig cap might make it look better. but i dont know how i can deal with a wig cap on my head, not being able to take it off for a couple of days....ive worn regular wigs before with the wig cap and all but i could take it off....do any of you just go with out a wig cap and have the part still look believable?my hairs nuthing but about and inch now, so wasnt sure if i had to wear one.........??????????

I am not wearing anything (on my head) underneath the l swiss lace and the part still looks good. Im not sure if you can go without a part trick underneath the lace on the french lace though. I am using Iman loose powder in deep earth for my current part. I will use an eye shadow applicator sponge and add a little bit of water or oil sheen to have the color stay put.

I'm like MzCaliky.
 
I don't use a wig cap either  - I couldn't  bear it. Tongue
 
I keep my natural hair very short so it it lies down flat. For the 'part' I also use makeup with a thin applicator brush. I use MAC studio fix powder foundation dipped in water but I think I will try MzCaliky's oil sheen idea!
 
See avi.

I don't use a wig cap and I haven't had to do the make-up tricks on my units either (that could be luck on my part). As long as my knots are bleached I've never had to worry about it blending. I hate wig caps. I'm sure you will find something that will work for you. Also look in the newbie thread for tape tricks that cal also help with the natural look of a scalp or you can send ms. celie a pm and ask for her help.

I wear a wig cap, but I'm a veteran wig cap wearer anyway, so I guess that I'm used to it. Khandii did something to one of her wigs, she sealed the knots and then she sprayed the Sally Hansen tan for legs spray and then sealed the knots again and she said that it made the scalp look believeable. I'm going to try that today. Currently I use Breh's method and you can't tell me this isn't growing out of my scalp...

I don't use wig caps either because they hurt and make my edges thin even more and when I tried the make-up trick and Sally hansen trick my BF and mom told me it looked fake so I put that to rest. Everyone tells me that my part looks natural without the wig cap and both of my units are french lace. I wish I can master some of these tricksUnhappy

I did this last night on a Indian Virgin unit that I've been wearing....I can't take any pictures (camera is in the shop getting ready for the big trip) but it really does look like scalp and I don't have a cap on today. It was very easy to do. This is going to be my new method...
