Transitioning Style: Half Wig

Divide the hair in two sections. I did a 1:4 ratio.

Section the back portion to prepare for braids.

Leave the front portion out.

Tuck the single braids into themselves.

You can cornrow or flat twist the front portion.

Put a satin wig cap over the back.

Secure the half wig around the satin cap.

This is my protective style choice for now.
I learned how to flat twist from a youtube video. I'm not perfect. Flat twists grab all the hair on the edges without pulling them out (at least in my experience).
I wish I had a kinkier half wig but I live in the funny part of Metro Atlanta, so they are hard to come by. NY I miss you!
This wasn't the best pictorial, I know. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
