November 7, 2020

Bone straight wig has been causing wahala on social media. And so, being the generous people that we are, we thought, “How can we help our readers become empowered enough to create their own bone straight wig?” After a series of consultations with beauty experts far and wide, we got enough insight to share.

To create your own wig at home, here’s a list of the things you need:

1. Wig cap

This is the cap you will wig your weave on, so it’s of paramount importance. You can opt for a thicker one if you want.

2. Needle and thread.

To sew the weave-on on the cap. Ask the seller for wig needle. It looks like this:

To gum the hair on the wig cap. You will need it for the closure, so that it will look like the wig is from your scalp. Needle and thread cannot achieve such perfect finish.

4. Actual hair.

After gumming and sewing the attachment on the wig cap, closure is what remains. This is where the weave-on comes in. You need just small to close up the front. You and your friend can contribute money to buy one and share it. Put the bonding glue on the wig cap and place your weave-on pieces on the glue. Now brush it until it aligns with the attachment remaining part of your bone straight wig.

6. Hot water.

7. Pink oil.

Perfect finish. Rub it on your bone straight wig and watch it shine like diamond. Brush the wig until it starts to bounce and you are ready to slay like the diva that you are.
