DIY Freetress Flexi Rod Crochet Wig

Hello Maicurlies,

Today I am going to be sharing how I made my first ever crochet wig (Annabelle). 

Freetress Crochet Braiding Hair - Bouncy Twist out turned Flexi Rod Curls

                                     Freetress Crochet Braiding Hair – Bouncy Twist out turned Flexi Rod Curls

I watched a number of videos on YouTube before I proceeded to make my own wig however, I quickly found out that while some of the stunning & talented women in the videos were able to make their wigs in a “few hours” it took me forever! Literally I split the process over two days (the weekend) and spent about 10 hours in total. This was only after I had initially made 2 failed attempts (two weekend before) with the Freetress Crochet Braiding hair – Bouncy Twist Out (colour 2). 

I initially wanted to make my wig to look the same as the crochet braids on the hair model however, it proved to be a challenge for me. The hair was just so thick it not only looked overly “fake” on my small face but it was overwhelmingly bulky. So in order not to give up I ended up changing the curl pattern of the hair by: moisturizing, detanglng, separating and re-curling with flexi rods and hot water. Once that was done I was able to make Annabelle with a lot more ease!


I have a detailed review about the crochet hair which I purchased online from Tisun Beauty (you can read about here.)

It is a lot easier to explain my wig making process via video which you will find below. 

Would love to hear from you, if you have attempted a DIY wig let me know how it went!

    Hello sweets, she is cute!!!!!! Still love your tresses the best though, hehehe, I know, bias but what can I say, Maicurls is the best 😀 😀 😀 you are patient and talented too, awesome and it looks real as can get, if my sister sees, she will want to do also!!! Thank you for posting dear and also love your pictures, absolute stunning outfit, you are radiant in that color, well all colors.

    PS: The color purple has been associated with royalty, power and wealth for centuries. In fact, Queen Elizabeth I forbad anyone except close members of the royal family to wear it. Purple’s elite status stems from the rarity and cost of the dye originally used to produce it.

    I am just saying!!!!! and which color is the lovely Marianne using? Not a coincidence 😀 😀 😀

      Your sister should try (so should you wink wink)!

      You are too much hun LOL! Seriously, if I weren’t as shy as I am, I would let all these wonderful compliments get to my head and walk around with a crown LOL! Thank you as always gorgeous curlsister. I am wearing a Djellabas that my lovely sister got for me while she was in Morocco. They are available in a number of colours and some with super fancy designs. They are mainly worn by women (although men have their own version which are less colourful). Women wear it around the house or for a quick trip to the store, It is perfect for the weather here since its so dang hot and the fabric is super light. I will admit apart from black purple is my favorite colour!
