Technique Review: How to Wet Wrap

Products used: KeraCare Setting Lotion, KeraCare Foam Wrap regular hold, NuExpressions Styling Gel; Medium Length hair dryer time: 1.5 to 2 hours; If you do not plan to curl your hair for your final finish, then you can skip the styling gel.

Do anchor and curve the center of the head as you comb around. You want to keep the center flat. You may want to comb all hair down into a mushroom first, then begin to comb/wrap around leaving the top of your mushroom flat.

These paper "megastrips" can be purchased from Sally's Beauty Supply.

Wet wrap is now completely dry. The paper wrap strips can be removed after the first 30 to 40 minutes. Usually, they will loosen on their own and fall away if you forget about them.

Breaking the mold to make sure it dries completely. You can use a wax, pomade, or a silicone serum to soften and loosen up the hair depending on if you used the styling gel or not.

Back view curled. I used Design Essentials Styling spray to curl with. I was going for a pretty firm hold without being hard.
