What extension texture should I choose?

Getting long beautiful hair is every girl’s dream. At least it was my dream until I realised that just as fairy tales are simple fantasies, long hair for me would remain a dream - well that was until I learnt about Human Hair Extensions.

Human Hair extensions are simply amazing because they can actually help:

  • Grow out a bad haircut

  • Add length and/or volume

  • Disguise damaged,over-processedhair

  • And – most importantly – give women who are experiencing hair-loss due to medical or other reasons, the confidence they need as their body heals.

Because everybody is different, a consultation with hair extensions specialist often helps the client to understand the different methods and options available. The hair extensions specialist also gets the chance to discuss the available textures to decide which option is truly ideal.

Types of HumanHair Textures There are so many different types of human hair textures on the market. Different textures are given different country names. However, they don’t necessarily mean that the hair you are getting is from that particular country. They simply represent different hair textures.

Brazilian Human Hair

Brazilian Human hair is the most popular hair type in for women with afro hair or women from African descent. The hair is typically soft, relatively thick and very durable. For this reason, the hair is suited to any style so it is always a great option whether you prefer a straight, wavy or curly style. Brazilian hair also handles colour extremely well so if you buy virgin Brazilian hair you can colour the hair to any colour you like. Due to the natural density, the hair is less likely to frizz which is a big plus and you can also use fewer bundles to still maintain a full look.

Peruvian Human Hair

Peruvian hair has become extremely popular. This hair is extremely durable and versatile and for this reason, allows you to style and curl it repeatedly with great results. This makes Peruvian hair a great multi-purpose hair as you can constantly change your look and style

without damaging the hair too much. As Peruvian hair is still relatively rare it is also usually relatively more expensive than other hair types.

Malaysian Human Hair Malaysian hair is very strong and for this reason, holds curls extremely well. So if you are someone who loves your curls, then Malaysian hair is for you. The hair is generally a nice dark brown colour. Like Brazilian hair, it also handles colour well so if you buy virgin Malaysian hair you can colour the hair to any colour or combination of colours you like.

Indian Human Hair

Indian hair is very high-quality hair and is highly regarded in the beauty industry. The hair is very light, airy, full of bounce and easy to style. Indian hair usually comes in a natural straight and natural wave style. If you are looking for a natural wave style then this is the hair for you. Indian hair is also very popular because it does not tangle, shed easily or lose its natural wavy look. At iHobbs Hair & Beauty, we only use European Remy Human Hair Extensions, guaranteed to last up to 18 months with proper aftercare.
