Every now and again we will come across a Kickstarter that make us wonder if this could really be a thing. This time we have one that is kind of like that and we really want you your input on it.
The product is called “Selfie Capz” and it was invented to help people learn how to lay wefted weave for sew ins quickly and easily while making wigs* or doing quick weaves.
According to the owners of the invention “a lot of people invest their time into watching “how to” videos and still lack knowledge of doing hair”. She truly thinks this cap will be a wonderful addition to the world of weaves, especially for beginners who might want an easy way to make their own wig* but still find it difficult knowing where to lay the wefts. According to the Kick starter page:
Each meshed weave cap is designed with one outline of a specific hairstyle. After putting on the cap, you would affix hair on top of it starting from the nape area and finishing at top of head. Works like a charm!
A patent-pending weave guide that literally outlines exactly where to lay your wefted hair?! No more watching countless tutorial videos, or going to an expensive hair stylist. This patterned cap will guide you through an entire hairstyle!!! Guess what? There’s nothing like this out there, this is the first DIY weave cap thus far!
Here is the video from their Kick Starter page:
And here’s another one from the inventor creating a unit for herself
For a beginner, I can see the value in a cap like that, because you really do not have to think about where the wefts should go, everything is all laid out. The issue however is: it’s kind of simplistic. Can’t anyone just make their own cap like that? Still the best ideas are usually the simple ones so I’m on the fence with this one.
We welcome your opinion comment below and let us know if you will be supporting this Kick Starter. Do you think it’s a great invention, and what would you do different?
