Ms. Diane Hall – Feature Story on Maicurls

Hello Maicurlies,

I am back with another beautiful Naturalista Feature and am proud to introduce you to Ms. Diane Hall! 

Diana Hall

This absolutely gorgeous natural is a powerhouse I tell you! Diane not only has been natural for a number of years, she has written a book ‘How I Grew It Long Naturally‘, is the co-founder of Natural Hair Week and if that wasn’t enough she also happens to be a model (which really isn’t a surprise). What did I tell you, a power house!

After connecting with her on Instagram and reading her story I knew that this would be one to share, Diane is absolutely inspiring and I am honored to be able to share her story on my Blog which you can read here

Thank you so much for sharing with us Diane! 

Thanks

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!

Annabelle

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! 

Thanks
