This may sound like a silly question, but has anyone ever been asked to remove their wig while going through security at the airport?  An agent patted my fro down once but it was my own hair.  I'll be traveling in a few days and I will be wearing a wig with metal combs.  I would be mortified if they made me remove it?!Cry

Nope. I travel all the time wearing wigs with metal combs. If I'm chosen to go through the machine (and it seems like I always am) they just pat down the back of my head. Really quick.

Oh good. Hopefully they'll do the same with me.

Hello,
While I have no experience on this subject there was a thread a few months ago on TSA and weaves/wigs. Though most persons said they got a pat down of their extensions i believe one lady was asked to remove hers (luckily it wasn't a wig).

All the best!

No babes they can't ask you to pull off your wig. Just tell them its a sew in and it cannot come off. The most they will do it pat it down and reach all up in your nape area. I think some of those ladies are haters but I would rather they pat myhair than some deranged person brining in a bomb within their sewin.

This is a very valid question lol
i traveled a few times and each time i was wearing a 22'' wig ..i pinned them down with bobby pins every time and  never required an additional pat down or anything after going through the scanner. i was asked once if i had bobby pins in my hair and after i replied yes that was it.  Wasnt embarrasing at all (ps..i saw other females with big obvious wigs and they didnt have to remove theirs either time) LOL
