PLAITS

Having your natural hair in plaits is one of the best and easiest ways of hiding your hair under a wig. Although this style is not as flat as other styles, it allows for your natural hair to be protected and allows for easier access to the scalp for cleansing and moisturizing.

How to achieve the look:

For medium hair

– Divide your hair into two and plait both sections.

– Swirl and tuck your plaits into a Heidi Braid hairstyle.

– With one plait, place it under the opposite plait and take it up around the front of your head. Secure this with pins.

– Take your second plait, cross it under the opposite plait and bring it to the front of the head. Again, secure with pins.

For long hair:

– Tie your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head and divide the hair equally into 4 sections and plait each

– Take one plait and wrap it around your head about an inch away from your hairline and pinning every few inches to secure

– Repeat this with the next two, wrapping each braid behind the rows of the previous plait

– With the final plait, wrap it into a spiral that ends at the base of the original ponytail.

TOP TIP

When plaiting the hair, keep the plaits small to minimize lumps or bumps under the wig.

CORNROWS

This is a much-loved hairstyle for concealing your natural hair under a wig, particularly for those with thick or textured hair. Cornrows allow for a flatter surface than braided hair so your hair is less bumpy under a wig, and this style is great for short to medium length hair, although can be done on most lengths.

How to achieve the look?

– Divide your hair into small sections from front to back and simply plait the length of your hair.

Things to remember when wearing a wig

Wear a silk wig liner - The cap protects the hair from the wig and keeps your hair in place while wearing the wig.

Moisturize and allow your scalp to get air - Wearing a wig does not mean your hair is completely protected and therefore allowed to be neglected. It must be moisturized prior to wearing a wig. Remember to moisturize before going to bed if your hair feels dry and never sleep with a wig.

Never place a wig on a wet head - Placing a wig on top of wet hair is just asking to create a breeding ground for bacteria. Hair should always be completely dry before wearing a wig.

Clean and condition your hair and scalp regularly - Hair and scalp need regular cleansing to remove the excess sebum and even dirt. Sweat and moisturizers can be built up and need to be removed. Takedown the twists, braids, or cornrows to shampoo, deep conditioner, moisturize and redo a fresh set of braids, twists, or cornrows. This will ensure your hair and scalp stay clean and moisturized so your hair does not because brittle and break.
