Thank God it's Friday, a holiday (Democracy Day in Nigeria), a day of change and hope (the inauguration of our new president) and my birthday!
Last week I attended my cousin's wedding and at the very last minute (the night before) decided that I would attempt making a crochet wig. There are numerous tutorials on YouTube and it's pretty easy.
All you need are a weaving/wig cap, crochet needle (I prefer bobby pins though), extensions (I used a kinky braid, and also Cuban twists), scissors and finally a wig head.
The first one I made with the kinky braiding hair was a hit and I liked the texture because it was soft and light - my sister took it from me though. I used 2 packs for this one.
The second one, I made (for my other sister) using Cuban twists and while it's not as soft as the other hair, it matches my texture so well. So much so that I can leave hair out and try different styles. I used 1.5 packs for this one.
Here are some great tutorials below.
Have a very nice weekend, and if you have 2 hours on your hands, you can try making this wig. Some people dip the hair in hot water while rolled up to have a curly/ringlet effect - it's up to you.
