Have you seen the new GripCap by Milano? I thought it was a really cool idea, but wondered how bulky it was, how hot it was, and if it was something I would get a lot of use out of. It is basically a wig cap (made out of a bamboo knit) sewn to an adjustable wig grip. I’ve worn regular wig caps underneath my wig grip (something you should do with a hand-tied wig to protect the knots) and found that the wig cap or the grip move around, because the grip can’t stick to the nylon cap – annoying!
I’ve been wearing the GripCap for about three weeks now, and I love it! Just for reference, I have a petite/average head and was able to adjust it so it fits me perfectly. I could sleep in it, it is so comfy! The bamboo knit cap is very lightweight and doesn’t feel warm at all. I was a little concerned that it would be too much cap on my head, but it is made to stretch – so I find the fit to be great with some give for someone with a larger head or more hair. I think that this would do well to hold down your biohair and make the fit of your wig that much more comfortable. I don’t plan on ever buying a regular wig grip again, I love this product so much! Not only does it protect my scalp from my wigs, it protects my wig from the oils and sweat from my scalp. It’s like underwear for my head! (lol)
The packaging says to hand wash – so I threw it in with some of my wigs and washed it in the bathroom sink and hung to dry. Putting this in the dryer is probably not going to hurt the fabrics, but it will make the Velcro curl from the heat – so definitely follow the manufacturer’s directions. I currently have only the tan GripCap because it is a good color for underneath my monofilament top wigs, but I want to get a dark brown one for under my standard cap brunette wigs to help disguise the wefts. I’ll probably get a spare tan one, too because I literally wear this every day now! So if you are looking for something that is not only comfortable, but going to protect your head and your wigs, I highly recommend the GripCap by Milano!
