hello everyone, new to the forum. I was wondering if anyone has made an eastern woodland scalplock. I am gonna be adding an Oneida persona and I am trying to get my Native American kit together. I have a ton of kanakalon hair for tying striper flies.. any help or insight to making a scalplock would be greatly appreciated...

Hello sir, figured I could give you some advice on something I've found that works great.

You can find online and possibly at most beauty stores a hair piece called a crown weave. These pieces are made to be sewn onto a larger wig as a closer towards the crown area. Just so happens... they work great and look wonderful. I glue a small circle of thin hide to the back with dap contact cement, attached to a shaved head with pros aid the prosthetic doesn't come off until I remove it, even with my porky and turkey roaches.

I personally buy real human hair, a little more expensive than synthetic hair but IMO real hair is a much better investment. Hope this helps! :-)
