DIY Freetress Flexi Rod Crochet Wig

Hello Maicurlies,

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

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! 

Thanks
