Natural Hair + Wig = Protective Styling

I have been wearing my natural hair since April 2015. I decided to make a wig after watching a YouTube video to vary my look. I used my own brand Wuchi hair, Brazilian weave, lengths, 12, 14, 16 inch and a 12 inch closure. I bought the manriquene head on Amazon for £5, wig cap, thread, curved needle and some T pins,  to keep the wig cap steady while I sewed the weave in.
It took me a while and called it my mini project because it is my first time making a wig and I think I did a pretty good job.

The essence of this post, is to ensure you  that you can still have, grow and maintain your natural hair without applying relaxer and still vary your look with protective styling wearing a wig.  

I am now growing my natural hair using my own brand hair oil and butters and I see the difference in hair lustre, thickness and shine. Most importantly my edges are growing back. I used to relax my edges in order for my weaves to blend in and look all natural, however, the relaxers started taking a toll by thinning the edges. Now my hair is growing back and you can do same for your hair and have thick healthy hair.
