How to Choose the Best Braiding Hair for Your Braided Wig

Braided wigs have become popular among black women seeking to quickly achieve high-quality hair without the long hours at the salon of weaving or the expense of getting their natural hair chemically straightened and rebraided every few months. There are many braiding hair options on the market, but they aren’t all created equal – some hold up better than others and some are simply more popular than others. Here’s how to choose the best braiding hair for your braided wig!

Step 1: Check if your wig is made of heat-friendly synthetic fiber

Heat-friendly synthetic fibers are wigs that can be chemically treated by heat; like a relaxer or perm. For example, if your wig is made of heat-friendly synthetic fiber, you can change its texture and hair style just by using heat tools such as flat irons and curling irons. But keep in mind that some heat-friendly synthetic wigs (such as Yaki) aren’t 100% heat friendly so make sure to check out customer reviews before purchasing one if it’s your first time buying braiding hair from a store. Before proceeding with any more steps below, make sure your wig is made of a heat-friendly synthetic fiber by examining it closely! Here’s what every heat-friendly synthetic fiber looks like

Step 2: Match your curl pattern with the braid hair type

Before deciding on which braid wig hair you should use, you need to know what type of curl pattern your natural hair has. There are three main types of curls: tight curls, loose curls and wavy/curly (or slightly kinky) curls. Choosing braid hair with a similar type of curl pattern will ensure that your braids hold up better over time and will appear more natural looking in general.

Step 3: Pick your favorite color

The first thing you need to do when picking your hair is determine what your favorite color is. Do you like bright colors, or do you prefer darker shades? Nowadays there are a wide variety of options. If you want something simple and low maintenance, you can try a wig that has synthetic fiber in it. Synthetic fiber wigs are especially good if you have an active lifestyle, or if your going through chemo treatment or radiation therapy. There’s no worry about damaging your natural hair while wearing one of these high quality products. If on the other hand, all-natural fibers suit your fancy, then go ahead and choose one with real human hair fibers! These types of products come in both silk base fibers as well as Kanekalon (Chinese) synthetic based fibers.

Step 4: Consider what hairstyle you are trying to achieve

Depending on your needs, you may or may not want to purchase a pre-made braid hair. There are three different types of braiding hair: synthetic, human and half human and synthetic/half human. Synthetic is usually only used if you don’t plan on wearing your wig for more than 6 months. Human is always best because it has natural fibers and won’t be affected by heat from flat irons and curling irons.

Step 5: Know how much time and effort you want to put into making a braid wig.

It’s important that you carefully consider how much time and effort you want to put into creating your braid wig. There are two methods that you can use when creating a braid wig: hand braiding or machine braiding. Hand braiding takes significantly more time and attention than machine braiding, so if you do not have a lot of free time and energy, it’s best to choose machine-braided hair for your wig. But if hand braided wig appeal to you, there are still numerous qualities that must be considered before making a purchase.
