    You have to braid your natural hair. Usually, people braid with the help of added hair in a circular design. You don’t have to use any kind of added hair to do a cap weave. Furthermore, the circular (beehive) design provides a very good base if you are looking forward to seaming the cap on your head.

    After braiding your hair, wrap it with a plastic seran wrap. If you don’t want to use plastic seran, you can wrap your hair with paper air wraps. While using plastic seran wrap, you will have to take the cap off after finishing.

    On the other hand, if you are using paper, you can keep it on your head after finishing. The plastic or paper wrap keeps your natural hair safe from glue which seeps through the cap.
