The wrap is my go-to hairstyle, especially at night when I am trying to maintain my hair while simultaneously being able to sleep comfortably. Most of the time, I am wrapping my hair after I have flat ironed or curled it. Sometimes I tend to forget that I can wet wrap my hair as well. Really, I don't tend to forget, but I very much dislike sitting under the dryer so wet wrapping my hair is always the very last style I think of when doing my hair. I tend to want to do the style that takes the least amount of time. For the past few weeks though I have been wet wrapping my hair as a protective style while I wear my wigs.
The following steps are what I used to wet wrap my hair:
- Shampoo and condition hair well (preferably with Silk Hydration products).
- Detangle hair and comb straight down.
- Part hair in four sections.
- Comb all of the hair in front, forward
- Apply foam wrap to first section.
- Start combing section of hair to the side making sure it lays very flat.
- Once section one is combed down connect it to section two. By this point all of the hair in the front should be combed over to resemble a comb over.
- Combine the front section to the back section of hair, being sure that the hair is laying smooth.
- Sit under dryer and let hair dry!
**Tip- Since I knew I would not be wearing the actual wrap, I did not allow my hair to dry completely. I sat under the dryer for TWO HOURS and it was still not fully dry! That is one of the disadvantages of having thick hair. It was about 85% dry and the rest dried overnight. After that, I simply put my wrap cap on and put my wig on. After that I was out of the door!
