Just out of curiosity I have a question,,,
Has anyone ever slept in their wigs using a silky net?
If so does that ruin the wig??
would love anyone's input on this please as I bought a silk net and the woman at the store told me I could sleep in my wig as long as I had the net on but they will say anything to sell something to you!

Hello Lisa Lynn -

As you know , I do not wear anything on top my head except my HUGE ego and the microchip that the government installed near my right ear to track my next move but ,

I would assume that sleeping in a wig would at the very least , give a "hat head " appearance and probably flatten it out .

Unless its really cold in your sleeping haven , why would ya wanna wear one to bed anyway.
I would think that if theres one place you can certainly be yourself and relax at , would be your "bood wha "

Anyway , Im sure there are a ton of folks on here better qualified to answer your query so lets see what appears .

Wishing you continued happy days ahead Lisa Lynn and ... salute !

- Peace

My daughter sleeps in her wigs, she uses a satin pillowcase. I am sure it cuts down on the life of the wigs but she cannot sleep without it on. It is what she has gotten use to.

I slept with a wig on for almost 2 years. You would think that if a man could not except me with a bald head then I should just give him the boot anyways, right?! Well, I never even gave him the chance to see me without it. And, by the end of our relationship, it was the end of the life of my wig, too. The hair was dead, and my cap even had holes torn in it! I hope I am brave enough to let the next man I meet see me without a wig, every night!

I've never tried sleeping in a wig, but I just can't see how it'd be anything like as comfortable as a bed, silky net or not. Unless it was a really big wig belonging to someone with a really big head.... hmmm.... anyone on here?? ;)

The only time I have something on my head while sleeping is in the winter when my head gets really really cold. Couldn't imagine trying to sleep in a wig. I'm sure if I did it would probably be on backwards by the time I woke up :-)

... or even worse, somewhere other than your head ;)

That's the dilemma. One can find the wig...or even a scarf...on the floor by morning. Whooooooooops!

Er, it wasn't "the floor" that I was thinking of... :) I can imagine waking up next to someone and finding her wig doing a passable impression of a hairy Alien face-hugger... eek! Yep, "bald" is fine by me... oh yes!

Seriously, Lisa-Lynn, I used to sleep in Granny Caps at sleepovers in the '60s...very uncool now. When at other's places, I wear a scarf that I can tie in back. Cotton, light wool or gauzey cotton won't slip like silk or polyester scarves do. I also try to stay awake until everyone else is asleep before I actually nod off, and I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to readjust (or FIND) my scarf. Beanies also work, but nothing, really, will stay on like rooted hair. Maybe you could use an older wig for sleeping, and hope for the best while visiting relatives or friends. Don't mess up your good wigs.
