Nigerian women love fashion and are so trendy. However, because they are resourceful and industrious, often times getting their hair done can be a little difficult because of their busy schedules.
Most especially, sitting for a long time to get their braids done can be stressful but because fashion is very forgiving now, the braided wig came to their rescue. This wig is like an answer to every woman’s prayer and has come at the right time. Braided wigs are the best because of how real they appear due to the lace closure of frontals they are often made with. They combine beauty and convenience at the same time. It also saves you all the tedious routines and its edges stay intact with repeated use.
For those who are interested, here are the few steps on how they’re made:
Materials you need
•Wig cap, weaving or dome cap (preferable).
•Braiding extensions (use four packs of rich braids extension)
•Mannequin or Styrofoam head pins
•Big needles with black threads.
•Elastics or wig combs (optional)
•Hairbrush and hair cream.
.Prepare extension for use, then you cut it to your desired length
.Fit the wig cap on your mannequin head and hold it down with some pin.
.Cut out the lace you want to use for your closure and place it on the area you want your closure to be, then you sew down.
.After that, start the process by putting little bits of attachment through the eye of the needle (that’s why you need big needles). Then pass it through the wig cap and pull out one end of the attachment and take the middle out. Now the attachment is hanging on the cap.
. Start braiding or twisting it.
.Repeat steps 4&5 until you fill the cap.
You shouldn’t just follow this trend without checking it out well. Always do what looks suitable for your face type.
