Vivica Fox Creates Removable “Cornrow Cap” For Sew-in Weaves

Avatar • Sep 19, 2015

Vivica A. Fox has made a name for herself in the hair industry with the Vivica Fox Hair Collection and she recently unveiled a new invention of the company on Facebook: the cornrow cap.

 I must admit, the cornrow cap reminds me of that cornrow lace-front wig Shemar Moore rocked in Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman.

Why, LAWD, Why?

The cornrow cap is said to be beneficial for protecting your edges, allowing you the base for a sew-in with the ease of a wig.

The cornrow cap comes in two braid patterns: the traditional straight back and horeshoe:

Admittedly, I have a few questions like: What do you do with the hair underneath? Cornrow it too? How secure is this cap? Can you rock crochet braids with it? If they’re going for authenticity, will it itch like a regular sew-in?

The jury is still out for me, but get your coin Aunt Viv!

What do you think? Could you find use for a cornrow cap?

To me this seem like a cap to make customized units, or wigs on. This would be the perfect cap to make different crochet braid hair style on. Then At night you can just hang it up Lol, this is what i would use this cap for.

I think this cap is definitely beneficial to those who don’t have enough hair to braid. If they purchase this cap it already has a simple braid pattern for someone doing a sew in on a customer which cuts down the time it takes for them to complete the style. And as for the customer, the cap and said sew in can come off at night like the ease of a wig. For those with hair braiding your hair all the time for a sew in or crochet is stressful on the hair. Simply slicking the hair back into a… Read more »

Then what do you pin it to? I’m confused about this thing…

At first I was confused by this product: “Less stress on you natural hair with the convenience of a wig!” — yeah, sure, so why not just get a wig then?

But, now that I think about it, this would be great for someone who wants to create their own natural hair wigs, practice crochet braids/etc., or experiment. I’m sure there are plenty of other uses that my limited imagination isn’t coming up with at the moment.

I might pick some of these up when they come on the market~

Yes! You are spot on, at least from my point of view. I am thinking about buying a corn row cap so that I can make a wig that is based on the type of style that I want. Lord knows that the wigs at the local beauty stores, look like something women wore in the 50s and are noticeably obvious.

So…But… Wouldn’t you just wear a wig instead? And isn’t the point of cornrows to lay your hair as flat as possible, so that the weave looks more realistic (i.e laid to the gawds)? I don’t know what the process would be, but this seems like a lot of steps. And yes like you said, would you have to conroe the hair underneath too? In which case, you’d look like you were wearing a hat of hair.

But hey, to each her own lol. #DoYouBoo!

Why is this necessary? I don’t get it. If you see a weave on it, doesn’t that turn it into a wig? I’m confused. Who is this marketed to?

I’m confused too. Maybe you’re supposed to just quickly cornrow your own hair and then sew this cap on so it’s a lot less braiding?

I thought it was for people who don’t have hair. Alopecia, cancer etc.

I would definitely buy it b/c my hair is too short to braid and was damaged.

This is just being marketed wrong. I finally see that is why I find/found it hilarious.

It’s not a removable cornrow cap for sew-ins.

-It’s the new easily customizable wig base. Instead of buying a new wig when you are tired of the old one, just take it down and change it whenever you want.

Okay, now that makes sense…because I was just going to post: “wouldn’t you still want to braid your hair under this cap anyway?” They need you on their marketing team! LOL

I still don’t understand why Shemar Moore wore that terrible cornrow lace front. I geuss they were testing the prototype back then.

Girl. I just made the loudest choking sound at my desk at that photo. Should have came with a “Not safe for work while snacking” label. Hahaha!

I think this would be great to make crochet wigs. Using the netted caps seems excessive and hard to know how it will turn out. With this you have an already set of base to follow.

Or you can just walk around with the cap, that should be cute.
Wigs are enough. Then there’s weave. Crocheting hair. Yarn wraps. Braids. Kinky twists. Senegalese…infinite variations.
Anything else they want to add to the long list of extravagant choices we have? As some empty their pockets for a new hair trend, I’ll sit back and watch the show. I’m sure they want us to line up and get excited about this new product.

Would be a great idea for women with short hair( too short to braid ) who want to switch up their look with a weave or crochet braids, every once in a while.

This is a great idea especially for women like a friend of mine with alopecia who can’t have braids but with using this she can have a wig made easily and be able to sew it down to the hair she has left. It can be kept in place with wig or toupe tape. For someone like me who has kept her hair faded or short and curly without enough hair to attach braids to, this is great for allowing me to switch up my hair styles and have a nice sewn in weave when i want. It’s not for… Read more »
