Quick Co-wash & my new (diy) Crochet Wig!

Hey peeps!

So I did a quick cowash about an hour before doing this post and I must say it was well needed. I have been moisturising daily with my little spritz and sealing with Shea Butter but sometimes you need a little extra moisture.. Hence the quick cowash. Here's how my #WashDayExperience went:

Conditioner: a little Tressemme Naturals conditioner I had left + Hello Hydration conditioner + warm water. I currently have my hair in half canerows (what some call cornrows) and half mini twists (I attempted to do my full head but got lazy half-way).

Leave ins: my diy moisturising spritz  + sealed with Shea Butter.

Now on to this crochet wig I made. Here are some pictures #excitement:

And it was easy to do! 

All I needed was 3 packs of marley hair, a mesh weaving cap, crochet/latch hook needle, wig clips (optional) and a mannequin head (or someone else's lol). It took me a little while to do because (1) I bought 2 packs and had to go back to the store some days after to get another pack,  (2) I took a couple breaks whilst making the wig and (3) I don't even remember why it took me a while lol. All you have to do is crochet the holes of the mesh weave cap! Genius!  

In any case, it turned out great and I don't think I'll ever do another set of crochet braids for now! Crochet braids can sometimes put stress on the edges so this is a GREAT alternative. With this wig, I take it off, I moisturise and wash my hair when I need to.. it's awesome! 

Guys, you will not be disappointed if you try this style. I feel like a hairstylist and I'm telling everybody (even those who didn't ask) that I did it ☺. 

I hope you guys get to try this style because it's soo good. 

Be well peeps


  1. What a brilliant idea Gibbie! And it looks incredibly natural! What size perm rods did you use to get those curls? They're beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. Thanks KLP! I used the white perm rods throughout to achieve this curl ☺

  2. Loving your Marley wig! Did you cut the braids in two to get the shorter look?

    1. Thanks Becca! Yes, that's exactly what I did.
