"God gave me a shiny bald head, an education and a voice to make a difference in the world... losing my hair, helped me find who I am!" -Jodi Pliszka, M.S.
Sweat can be an issue for many headwear users in the summer. Sweat can stain your wigs, baseball caps, and scarves and leave oils, odors and salt stain residue. Face it! The more you sweat, the more you need to wash your wigs and the quicker you are going to need to purchase a new wig. Did you know that we lose about 1 tsp. of water from our heads, each hour, when we perspire? Some products retain the moisture, and as the head heats up, it begins to “steam” the head, like you would a lobster. This increases the core body temperature and makes us hotter,more tired and more prone to irritability.
Don’t worry! Wigs.com knows the best way to help regulate your core body temperature and fight heat stress this summer, with our Headline It! “No Sweat” Comfort liners. Designed for women with cancer, alopecia, other medical conditions and even our U.S. Military. Yes, Headline It! No Sweat Comfort liners are the #1 headwear accessory designed with high tech wick wear, to pull the sweat away from your head, and into the liner. This keeps your head cooler in the summer (and warmer in the winter). The liners retain 4 times their weight in sweat, stopping it from rolling into your eyes. No more sunscreen, rolling into your eyes, stinging them.
The back “tan” layer is made from high tech SMS material that has 1-3 microns per sq. inch (about 1 million dense particles) to trap the oils, salts and odors, before it saturates your wig, hat or headwear item. By trapping all of the impurities, it drastically reduces the amount of times you need to wash your wigs/ hats/ scarves, within the month. By doing this, you are saving time (don’t we all need more of that?) and you are saving money, from not having to prematurely replace a wig/hat/scarf, as often. The liners act like a “one way street”, bringing in perspiration through the hydrophilic side, that touches your head, and evaporating it continuously. The SMS material, which is tan, is hydrophobic (phobic-afraid of water) so the perspiration can’t enter the back of the liner. If you take a drop of water and place it on the SMS material, the tan side, the water droplets will stay their, indefinitely.
Each liner can be used for 80 hours, which is about 10-14 days of use. The back layer absorbs so many of the impurities, that the liner needs to be disposed of after this time frame, or it won’t evaporate the perspiration effectively. The liners can be tossed in the garbage, when they are soiled and two new liners can be placed inside the wig/ hat/ scarf/ helmet.
For extreme comfort, it’s important to use 2 liners. One in the front and one in the back of the headwear item. They were made this way, so they wouldn’t need to be sized and will fit every size and shaped head. Since tape doesn’t stick well to oil, please make sure that you wipe down the inside of the headwear item, prior to removing the peel strip, and sticking it into the wig/ hat/ helmet. The liners will stay in place and keep the little pokey, itchy hairs away from your sensitive scalp. Hair or no hair, you can enjoy the comfort that Headline It! No Sweat Liners offer you.
The yellow tab, with the Headline It! logo printed on it, is the best part of the liner. Did you ever put a rug on a hardwood floor and have it slip all over the place? This non-slip piece of Egyptian cotton will act just like the piece of rubber, you put under the rug, to stop it from slipping. Our non-slip material is strategically placed, so your wigs, hats and headwear items will keep in place on your head and they won’t shift, as easily.
You are probably wondering, “how did they think of that?” Well, the inventor of the product is Jodi Pliszka, M.S. an alopecia survivor of over 29 years. Jodi is an award winning author of the children’s books that help kids learn how to deal with difference, like alopecia, cancer, braces, glasses and more - Bella and Gizmo’s Adventures the Hairless Sphynx Cats and Bella Gets a New Sweater. Jodi also wrote her award winning autobiography, Bald is Beautiful, My Journey to Becoming. Jodi earned her Master’s degree and PhD work in Psychology, to better help people, like herself. Jodi invented Headline It! and was a top finalist on ABC’S American Inventor TV show and featured on Lifetime TV’S Health Corner, NBC, CBS, ABC and other media outlets, internationally. Jodi does life coaching and mentoring, while raising her daughter, Jess, who is a huge advocate in the hair loss world, as well.

Yesterday was the summer solstice, which means summer is officially here. As temperatures go up, wearing a wig every day can seem like a challenge. But with the right wig and wearable hair products, this summer can be a breeze. No matter what your plans, the Wig Experts are here to help you look haute and stay cool with our summer wig tips. We've got you covered!
Tip 1 - Switch to a Short Style
If you normally wear a long or mid-length wig, summer is a good time to switch to a short style for a change of pace. You can even stick with your same color if you find a short wig by the same brand. Short wigs are among the most popular styles on Wigs.com. We offer hundreds of short styles, from pixies to boy cuts to short bobs. Short wigs are perfect for summer because they're lightweight and they keep hair off your neck and shoulders. Short hair is also easier to style and maintain. Show off your chic in a short style!
Capless wigs have open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation, which makes them more cool and comfortable to wear. They are a fantastic summer solution because they are among the lightest and coolest wigs available. A capless construction is made with open wefting throughout the cap to help air circulate for maximum ventilation. Don't let the name fool you — there's still full-cap coverage, it's just designed to be lighter and airier!
The patented No Sweat Liner by HEADLINE IT! is an essential product for any wig wearer. Each package consists of 10 disposable sweat elimination liners. The individually wrapped packages are small enough to take with you anywhere and discretely packaged for your convenience. The nude back layer, is great for camouflaging the liner under wigs and headwear. The unique combination of micro-fiber materials are engineered specifically for your needs to stay dry and comfortable. The moisture transport system quickly draws perspiration away from the skin, wicking it into the transport layer. Say no to sweat and yes to No Sweat Liners!

In addition to No Sweat Liners, we offer several other care products to protect your wig. Just as prolonged exposure to the sun is bad for your skin, it can be equally taxing for your wig. Avoiding the summer sun entirely is almost impossible so be sure to treat your wig with some extra TLC. We recommend the BeautiMark line of hair care products. Spraying Leave-in Conditioner by BeautiMark on your wig will protect it from the sun and prevent the fibers from drying out in hot weather. Brilliant Shine and Shine Serum by BeautiMark restore sheen and moisture to the fiber and refresh wigs between washes. Washing your wig every 4-5 wears will help manage build-up from increased perspiration during warmer months. And the Try Me Kit by BeautiMark is perfect for summer travel!
The ResQ Bag™| Kit + Mini by Amy Gibson is highly functional, chic, and a must-have for all wig wearers. It's perfect for summer travel or storage at home. Inside you will find the ResQ Bag™ | Mini, a complimentary set of all your wig essentials, and the BeautiMark Try Me Kit (recommended for synthetic hair but safe for human). The mini bag was designed to store and protect your wigs, hairpieces, and extensions. The unique mesh lining minimizes tangles and frizz, making it safe for traveling. Pockets along the larger bag keep all your essentials together and organized. Show off your personal style with fashion forward colors and prints: pink, leopard, and black.
Our latest how-to pictorial is the Half Crown Twist. See how easy it is to quickly style your long wig in to a beautiful braided look in only a few quick steps.

The Wig Experts have chosen Emotion by Ellen Wille as our wig of the week. It's a new, Remy human hair and supremely natural looking wig from Europe's top wig brand, Ellen Wille. Emotion is part of the Ellen Wille US Collection, and we think you'll love its European design. Clients are saying things like "beautiful," "incredible" and "amazing." See for yourself why this wig is so special.
Emotion is a long, Remy human hair wig with precision-cut layers that fall to and below the shoulder. The 100% hand-tied cap helps the layers blend beautifully to provide supremely natural movement. The monofilament top and hair density also contribute to the overall natural look of this wig. It is ideal for a petite to average head size. The 100% Remy human hair is the finest quality human hair -- exceptionally strong yet soft, shiny and less likely to tangle as the cuticle is still intact and aligned. Emotion is part of the Ellen Wille Pure Power collection.

"I've had alopecia totalis for 2+ years now. I've tried all sorts of wigs (from synthetic to Remy to hand-tied to traditional cap to lace caps that are taped on). This cap is amazing. It's petite so it's perfect for complete hair loss. The hair isn't overly full like most other wigs are. This is the most natural wig I've ever had. If you have alopecia or are otherwise hairless, save up for this wig and/or cap style. It's worth it!!" - Wigs.com client review of Emotion
