How to Style a Braid Wig for a Protective Look
There are many different braiding styles that can be used with a braid wig, but here we’ll focus on one of the most popular braiding styles—the Senegalese Twist—and show you how to style a braid wig for the maximum protective effect. Braid wigs are an interesting alternative to traditional human hair wigs because they can look more natural in the hair while also being more protective of your natural hair underneath.
What are wig braids and where can I get them?
Wig braids are fake hair that is attached to a wig cap. Fake hair is usually made from synthetic materials, but can also be made from human hair. There are many places that sell wig braids, including beauty supply stores, online retailers, and costume shops.
Wig braids come in many different colors, textures, and lengths. You can choose the color that best matches your own hair, or you can choose a color that you would never be able to have with your natural hair. The texture of the wig braid will also vary depending on the type of material it is made from. Synthetic wig braids tend to be more shiny and smooth than human hair wig braids.
The length of the wig braid will also vary.
