What is a monofilament in a wig or toupee?

Posted by Robert Cook on 4/11/2017 to Informational
A monofilament top or mono-top wig will have a transparent or flesh colored woven material made from nylon, polyester or lace material on the top (full crown) of the wig. Each individual fiber or natural hair is hand knotted (the best) or v injected into this material. This allows for the most natural realistic looking scalp appearance and will allow you to change the parting for multiple styles. Monofilament wigs, unlike most wigs, are not made with cloth or wefts (Known as full cap or capless wigs) and are not as heavy or as hot to wear. Monofilament is found in top piece, closures, men's toupee's as well as full wigs.

March… (Lung cancer awareness month)  

I want to start with a story of a beautiful women named Janie Proia who lived with us for almost 6 years. She came to our home and rented a room from us, after a series of broken promises from her ex husband. She had left him 15 years prior, and he never honored the conditions of the divorce court. He changed his name, moved every 6 months and avoided the law. She left him due to his drug use because she wanted to become clean and sober and he didn't. Because of her drug use 15 years prior, she was put on a list, you know, that list where hospitals and doctors use as a warning of drug abuser’s(even though she had been clean and sober for 15 years).She had no family to speak of, so we became her family...
