1 Three common hair braiding methods


  • Braiding your hair is one of three ideal ways to wear your hair under a wig. While not as flat as other styles, it protects the hair and makes it easier for some women to maintain. It also allows easier access to the scalp for cleansing and moisturizing. Braid your hair to minimize lumps or bumps under the wig.

Twist braids or flat twists

  • These are the easiest styles to wear under a HD lace wig, but they are also the least popular. While easy to make, they will curl and tangle faster than braids and cornrows. Remember to keep them small, so they don't leave lumps under your wig.

Protect your hair and scalp

  • Hair and scalp need to be cleaned regularly to remove excess sebum and dirt. Sweat and moisturizers can build up and need to be removed. Remove the twists, braids, cornrows, shampoo, deep condition, moisturize and redo a new set of braids, twists, or cornrows.

Before weaving

  • First, you will need to wash and condition your hair. Once your hair is completely dry, use a comb to remove tangles and knots in preparation for the weave later. Then use the comb to separate the hair down the middle. Later you will need to weave one side and tighten the other side of the hair with a rubber band or anything else.

Cut your hair

  • You can divide your hair on the left side into three parts, or if it is thick, you can divide it into more parts. This crucial step will ensure that your braid is not too big and bulky and unnatural, and not too small, and will not cause the wig to slide backward.

Moisturize every part of your hair

  • First, start with the top part of your hair. The part on your ear should be the last one. Also, all sections should be level with the hair.Grab about an inch wide and pull the rest of the hair tight. Then all you need to do is apply some moisturizer and oil to protect your hair. Since you will leave your braids under your wig for a few days, it is essential to moisturize your hair fully. Then comb through your hair so that all of it gets enough moisture.

During this process, you must ensure that your hair is braided tightly and flat enough. Then repeat the braiding steps. Take a section of hair, wet it, comb through it, and braid it to the end. After completing the braid on one side of your hair, do the same with the other half. Also, apply some hair edge gel and brush back the edges of your hair. Your hair will be flatter.

Tie the braids together

  • After you braid all sections of your hair, long braids will be in the back. Tie all your braids together and tighten them with a rubber band. Then take a regular bobby pin, twist the braids, and cut the hair into pieces. You can twist them into a ball and secure them with a rubber band if you have long hair.
