Hi hi and hi again, how have you been dear readers?
So over the weekend I made a wig, yes I made it all by myself hunnay (after watching YouTube videos of course).
Please watch the videos embedded in this post as I cannot do a pictorial.
P.S I used the method in the second video but they’re pretty much similar plus this hair took hours upon hours, my back hurt, my finger, my head, everything. It is time consuming & a bit stressful (not trying to discourage you but just thought you should know).
– Mesh cap.
– Marley hair (I’d rather you don’t use Noble natural braid because it’s too kinky but if that’s what you can afford, go ahead).
– Wig head/stand.
– Perm rods or Flexi rods (bendy rollers).
– Latch hook (crotchet needle) or bobby pin (I used bobby pin and it would’ve been easier with a latch hook).
– Hot water.
I used an already “used” hair (the one from my Havanna Twists) but that shouldn’t change the results you’d get.
- Comb/brush/finger separate the piece of hair (I soaked mine in water to make it easier)
Wrap the piece of hair onto the permrods or flexi rods.
Place in a bowl/bucket and pour hot (very hot) water into the bowl/bucket.
Leave for about 5 – 10 minutes.
Bolt with towel and unravel.
Wear the mesh cap on the wig head and crotchet each piece of hair (I’m assuming we all know how to crotchet braid if not check here)
Style how you want to, either a fringe or a free part, I did a free part with layers.
This hair is bouncy yaaassss!
I cornrowed my hair so the style can lay flat, however you can do a leave out if you wish.
I’m not going to bother wasting products on it either because it’s synthetic and a wig, I can always throw it away but my sister sprayed some hold and shine hairspray on it and that will do, with occasional olive oil when I feel like it.
What are your thoughts about this hair? Yay or nay?
