Happy March everyone! When I told you that I will have a Crochet Wig tutorial with 100% Kanekalon Marley hair next month, I had no idea that the month was going to be here so fast. Aren't you excited that spring is almost here? The only thing I am not looking forward to is the pollens. Other than that, I think I am ready! As you can see above, I am still rocking my big Afro wig. You will get to see the finished product below because I promised you last week that I was going to try to make the hair look smaller. Today I will show you how I made the wig. My wash day experience was the same as last week. Now let's see how I made the wig!
- Net wig cap (or stocking wig cap with holes)
- Crochet needle
- 100% Kanekalon Marley Hair
- Styrofoam wig head
- Scissors + perm rods
- Hot water
- Make sure the net wig cap is securely attached to the wig head. Use ball head straight pins to keep the cap in place.
- Push the crochet needle through three holes to have enough threads to hold the hair.
- Attach the hair to the hook, close the latch, pull the hair through, and create a lark's head knot to secure the hair to the cap. The amount of hair you use depends on how big you want the wig to be.
- Comb the hair through after you are done installing it.
- Boil enough water before installing the perm rods.
- Set the hair with perm rods and dip in hot water.
- Sing "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray. You'll never know dear how much I love you. Please don't take my sunshine away." once before you remove the perm rod from the hot water. Change the water when necessary.
- Dry each perm rod with a towel before removing them.
- Cut the hair as needed, then style.
I hope you find this tutorial easy enough. Leave your questions in the comment box below if you have any. Please tag me if you try to make this wig yourself. I would love to see how creative you can get! Now tell me, which hair do you like better, the before or the after?
