I finally made my first flip-over wig using IVY's Flip Over Method. I used 3 bundles of Virgin Brazilian Loose Wave Hair (14,16 and 18 inches).
I braided my hair and sewed the wig down to a perimeter braid.
You can see my leave out is way coarser than the weave (i am transitioning).
|I tried to blend using a flat iron. This was a big fail because I was scared to apply the amount of heat needed to blend my hair with the weave. It was very silky.|
|First time i washed my hair i used the Alumine Soy & Baobab Oil conditioner alone to cowash and I let it air dry.|
2nd Wash using full range of Alumine products
|Before I wash my hair, I comb with a wide tooth comb starting from the tips and working my way up towards the roots. This gets rid of any snags or tangles.|
|I used the products in this order (from left to right)|
|I used a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment to dry the hair to about 50%. |
I was left with soft, defined, moisturized curls.
|This is my hair fully dried. You can see that the entire line of products define my waves/curls even more than when I use the conditioner on its own. Curls on fleek!!!|
The flip over method only works if you can blend your hair or are willing to use a lot of heat to blend your hair with the extensions seamlessly. As for the extensions itself, I absolutely love it, it is low maintenance but next time I will install with a lace closure. Since I am going natural (I am currently almost 1 year post relaxer) I have decided I will only wear silky textured extensions with a closure or I may stop wearing silky textured extensions all together.
