How to do feed in braids with curly hair (glue down method)
Start by parting washed, moisturised and stretched hair from ear to ear in a half up half down style.
Tie the front section of the hair using a scrunchie or hair tie and start working on the bottom section.
Braid the bottom section into as many rows as you’d like to have. Ensure that the bottom part is a horizontal line braid.
You can also spray got2b glue on the wig cap and glue the bundles on it.
Glue down as many bundles as you like depending on the volume you’re going for with 2 bundles being the minimum.
Tip- If you’d like to have no leave out. At the top most braided row, glue down the curly deep wave hair the opposite way to ensure that your tracks are covered.
