I sewed the straps into one of my units. I have no intention of shaving anything ( nor did I buy into that when I used adhesives, some would say the same about shaving the hairline.)
I found this is a good method instead of or to supplement the elastic band method for times when you want a bit more hold or if the elastic stretches too much as it does with wear. Plus, I can never get my measurements just right with the elastic so this is a great supplement. You can always modify a method rather than just criticize.
I am curious about the comment that the straps weren't "made" for hair. None of this is really. Fabric is fabric. I think it is about the tension.
Thanks again to the OP.
It's not about criticizing to be mean or something. Those elastic straps will take someone's hair out. And I don't see the reason to advise someone to shave their hair to get a better hold for their wig. That sort of advice is making all black wig wearers look bad out here. U don't see other women with "healthy hair" shaving their head to get a better hold for their wig unnecessarily.
I also said that I'm not against innovation and new idea's. A better idea IMO if you're gonna use straps use the satiny straps. People use satin scarves because it doesn't dry their hair and take it out so why not satiny bra straps that will slide against your hair instead of suffocate and rub against it. use the elastic for the temples for undetectability. Sew the latex to the satin straps. Use the satin straps for tension.
I'm sure the lady meant well...she went in the right direction but gave bad advice and used a material that would be detrimental to the health of people's nape.
