As women, we desire to look our absolute best at all times. So when it comes to making a decision about wearing a wig, the one apprehension some women have is whether or not it will look natural on them. While we understand that our natural tresses deserve an occasional rest from exposure and manipulation, we also want to make sure that our wig looks and feels like we spent years nurturing and growing it ourselves.
Here are some tips to make your wig look so natural, you’ll be excited to tell those around you that it’s a wig!
First, braid your hair flat starting a couple of inches from your hairline. Depending on the thickness of your hair, this may require as little as 5 braids or as many as 7-10.
When braiding your hair, make sure that your parts match where you typically part your hair. That’s likely the same spot you’d prefer for your wig part to be located. This will save you time later in the process.
If your part is off a little, simply use the end of a rattail comb to create a one in your braid that aligns with the one in your wig.
Place your Rhythm Wigs WigGrip or whatever wig cap you are using securely on your head about an inch or so away from your hairline then position your wig as needed.
Next fluff your hair, shaping it around your face as desired; remembering to adjust the wig around the nape of your neck as well.
Most importantly, remember this….it’s your hair! Play around with it, run your fingers through it and shake it until you feel as comfortable with it as you are with your natural curls. Do what you want to do with it – -it’s yours!
