Rag curling? I've never rag-curled in my life, but I decided this was the key to hedgehog success and I was going to try it.

I cut my strips of cotton and rag curled my half-wig into tight little spirals, letting it set for about 3 days.
|This is just after I untied the rags, before the floofing.|
When you take the rag curls out, you just run your fingers through the hair, fluffing and puffing, and pinning into shape. I left the back of the hair free of rags, to curl with a curling iron later, for the barrel curls that hang down the back, or over the shoulder.
|Bump-its, freed from their confinement.|
|You get three bump-its in a package|
|The back. Needs a little taming|
You can see my real hair that will be blended into the front, but I need to color it to match the wiglet, and also tightly curl it too, before fluffing and blending.
|The front, my real hair, needs curling, and renewed color.|
- Use real human hair wefts. They are more expensive than fake, yes, but it's well worth it.
- Get enough hair. I wish I'd bought 2 packages instead of 1.
- The curls don't have to be this tight. Next time I do this I'm going to try fatter curls on small curlers, or larger rag-ties.
- Try them Bump-Its, they're fun.
- Lastly, this hair piece is very lightweight and cool, temperature-wise, compared to a full wig. It stays put extremely well and is very comfortable.
