How to Blend a Wig for Shorter Foreheads

by Evenes Ruth Mafupa

Hello beautiful people. I hope you are well and a blessed 2021 to you and yours. I hope you are staying safe, observing the protective measures to make sure we and our loved ones are somewhat protected.

What a way to start the new year. But I am optimistic and so you should be. We may be at war but we will surely win in the end.

This year, well, I decided to give braids or twists with extensions a break. So, I will only braid or twist my own hair. No extensions added. I have no problems with extensions, believe me. I am just taking a year-long break.

However, I am not taking a break from pom poms, wigs or ponytails that include extra hair added. I could never do that because I love my wigs. Or maybe just not yet. That could be a challenge for another time. For now, let’s tackle this one.

So today, besides just coming here to wish you a blessed year ahead, I am going to show you how I blend this wig with my natural hair.

I normally leave out some hair because my hairline is quite close to my brows and even if it has a 3-way closure, it does not do much for me because I really can’t wear it,

So, leaving out some of my natural hair works better for me.

Now, leaving out hair is also tricky so that you don’t become a United Nations on your head. Here are some tips for blending a wig properly.

  • You need to make sure that the texture of your wig is very close to the texture of your hair. That is why I love this kinky textured wig because when combed out, it looks quite close to the texture of my hair.
  • The colour needs to match with the colour of your hair as well. My wig was dark brown originally. So, I had to dye it black in a way that it resembles my hair. I used Love my hair black hair dye but I made the consistency of the dye very runny such that it did not attach very well to all the strands. That gave it a dark brown to black colour or let me say the black is not well defined.

So, as to how I blend my natural hair with a kinky Brazilian hair wig, here are the steps

  • Make sure the hair is laying flat or somewhat flat if you are using curly or coily hair. The bumps will not show on curly hair really.
  • Wear a wig cap to cover your hair. I seldom do though. My wigs are sewn on a wig cap so I just feel as if I’m wearing 2 caps.
  • Make sure your leave out hair is not under the cap and then wear your wig.
  • Clip or pin the wig to secure it. You don’t want dramatic accidents.
  • Part your hair together with the wig and the brush the hair together to blend.

That’s it. No fuss, no stress. You need to watch the video for more.
