Question Back of head parts

How do you manage these on your own head? I've been trying to part a clean line down the back of my head without success. I have no trouble parting the top, but the back eludes me. It seems that I can never get the comb all the way down to the scalp to section off the hair. I tried parting the hair with my hands, but that didn't work either. I'm thinking that with my volume of hair, it might be best to get it soaking wet and part it then. Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Back of head parts

This really isn't advice, but I'm beginning to think that slightly messy parts look less like someones elses did it for you. A little more natural. I think I like them better. (probably becasuse I can't make a striaght one and i'm jsut jealous!)

I have used a rat tail comb pick before that was made of smooth metal... the part came out straight but titlted in one direction

I hope someones can be more helpful, I want to know too!

Re: Back of head parts

The main reason I want to part down the back of my head is that I need to learn to do multiple parallel French braids to squish all of my hair under a wig when I dress in costume. Easy methods of distributing hair under a wig cap just do not work for me because my hair is so slippery. It has to be evenly nailed down all over my head. The one and only time I got my hair to fit under a wig, it required pincurls and 2 hours of help from a friend. The French braid method has been recommended by people who have much more hair than I do, and it seems like it would be easier for me to learn to do on myself than pincurling all over my head. (And I won't waste umpty bazillion bobby pins each time I practice. ) As long as I have an obvious part so that I can feel the boundary between each section of hair, I'll be good to go.

Re: Back of head parts

I use a pointy hairstick to make the part. It gets through all the layers of hair and makes a very clean part. But I can't help with a straight part, mine never are...
