After my mixed feelings towards the first short cap weave I had, I decided to try making one of my own. I planned to use it as practice before attempting to make a kinky twist or sisterlocks wig. (Click here for my initial thoughts)

By the way - in case you didn't know a cap weave is where a weave or wig is created as a cap - allowing you to remove the whole thing when you want to wash your hair... or as in my case - allowing you to wear a weave/custom-made wig if you have no hair of you own to sew a traditional weave on to.

I like this type of weave cap best - I find it more durable than the stocking cap but most stylists I've met so far won't create cap weaves with them because of the glue - they prefer this type (net) for sew-ins.













Personally, I'd give this a 6 out of 10. It was kinda what I wanted BUT having made it while on the foam head it turned out to be just a smidge too loose for me ho hum - on to the next one

Cost: £10 (£1 for the weave cap/net, and then £7.99 for the Bump hair in colour 2, £1 for the bonding adhesive)
Frequency of Wear: Zilch. (slightly loose and hubby hated it lol)
Durability: It's still in my wig box a year later...
Overall Value: ???
