I'm always looking for a good way to get my hair out of the way! But I also try to make sure that the style is actually protecting my hair and not further damaging it. I have found that the best way for me to grow out my hair and keep it strong is to get it out of the way. But with this method you have to be adamant about taking care of your "hidden" hair. Caring for your hair underneath your protective style is still extremely import.
So being that I love to change my hair often I decided to make a u part wig to change it up a little bit. There are tons of tutorials on youtube on how to create one, so I won't even try to explain the process in words. That would be super boring and confusing! BUT what did help me tremendously was getting a holder for the wig head. I got mine from amazon and I will link it below. This little thing saved me sooooo much time! I got my wig done in a couple of hours instead of a whole day! I would HIGHLY recommend getting one if you are thinking of making yourself a wig.
The holder get attached to your table and it goes inside of the styrofoam wig head. It will hold the head in place and you can move the head up and down and you are moving it around sewing in the hair.
The reason I chose to go with a u part instead of a sew in, is that I want my hair to grow. And even though there are a lot of people that can do a good sew in, it becomes a different story when the goal is to keep the hair healthy. There can be a lot of tension from the braids and the sewing of the hair which in turn can cause a lot of breakage. So I opted for this style because I know how much tension to apply to my braids and I don't have this sewn in. I'm securing it with combs and pins. Making it a safer style.
