I love to give my hair a break. The daily combing, styling, washing and handling puts a lot of stress on the strands and can cause a lot of damage. Some women prefer to wear their hair and handle it daily which is fine. However, for women like myself who prefer to rest our hair, we opt for either braids, wigs or weaves.
As you get to know me, you will see I love a bargain and I'm always looking at ways to save money.
During my pondering on what to do with my hair this winter, it dawned on me that I have seen over and over how my hairstylist does my weave.
So, I took it upon myself to attempt to make my own and bought a wig head. My wigs came out so well, I thought I'd share how I made them with you.
Things I used
How I made them
1. Place stocking cap on wig head
2. Put hair glue on hair weft and glue around wig head in a circular motion starting at the bottom
(use blow dryer to speed up the glue drying process)
3. Continue until you get to the point where there is just a little circle left
4. Now get a little piece of hair, roll it, cut the weft off and add glue to where the weft has been cut
5. Stick the strands into the circle, hold firm and blow dry until glue is invisible
- 2 packs of human hair cost £6.99 per pack
- Cost of hair glue £1.00
- Cost of making both wigs, £14.98
