DIY Kinky Straight Wig

Revisiting my favorite texture of all time... kinky straight. This time I constructed my own wig with two 16 inch bundles and a 12 inch lace closure. I am back to lace closures permanently, they are lower maintenance and way better for everyday wear than frontals. This time i got a bigger closure; regular closures are 4" x 4" and the bigger size closures are 5" x 5". I bleached the knots on the closure and also tinted the lace with black tea to match my scalp. If you have never tinted your closure. Try it.. it makes a big difference!

This time I stepped up my picture game and I straightened the hair not bone straight but to a yaki texture to show you the difference in volume between the natural blow out state and tamer straight state. It can get even sleeker than this.
Natural state
Flat Ironed state
The best thing about kinky straight hair is you do not need a gazillion bundles for a full look. I used 2 bundles and it is super super full. If you want a natural density 1.5 bundles is sufficient.

This texture still blows my mind, when it is curled it looks so glamorous. I get the most compliments when I wear this texture.

This is by far the best texture in terms of hair that matches natural hair because it is extremely low maintenance. I have also worn hair extensions that match my type 4 hair in its curly natural state. Those are amazing too in terms of blending but they are higher maintenance. I have worn this textures as a wig, clip ins. I absolutely love it.

Have you ever tried natural textured hair extensions? What is your favorite texture? I would love to read your comments!
