Originally I meant to attach wefts of hair to the skullcap itself and style these, however this would have been unnecessarily expensive and time consuming considering there were plenty of wigs available. I was a bit worried that the wig might take damage from the dreadlocks and styling but I was careful not to be too rough with it. I back-combed the entire wig, created dreadlocks, plaits, and braids, and used various material including cotton, silk pods, straw, Hessian, muslin, and rope to style the wig. I also used additional layers of weft hair dread-locked and even an extra wig underneath to add further volume to the hair and make it thicker and look more wild.
