Different Types of Hair

Believe it or not your hair texture and colour varies depending on which country you are from, this isn’t always the case but for the majority you will find this to be true. So there are different types of hair for different countries, but some hair types will obviously share similarities as well as having their own differences. So what type of hair would be suitable for you? lets take a look what they are:

SIMILARITIES – In Asian hair, European hair , Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair Your will find with virgin hair types there is natural movement with minimal shedding and tangling. The texture can be processed in wavy, straight or curly and colours are not even throughout the bulk. Typically hair from a sunny country tends to be lighter or darker then the rest of the weft due the sunlight exposure.

DIFFERENCES

Brazilian Hair

Brazilian hair is extremely popular for its many qualities, it is has beautiful texture, bounce and full body and is available in straight, curly or wavy styles. Another great quality of Brazilian hair is it’s versatility, being available in a range of different lengths and colours and always looks sleek, shiny and smooth. The straight form of hair isn’t what we call pin straight, it does usually have light waves. This particularly type of hair usually holds curls for longer compared to Indian hair and as it holds curls incredibly well its great for all types of hairstyles and even curls when wets. It is most popular in west-African countries for its textures. If you take good care of your Brazilian hair the duration will last and will not require any special maintenance.

Malaysian Hair

This type of hair is best suited to those who require volume, thickness and full body as its possesses qualities for being thick, having great bounce and heavy body. The hair tends to look overly shiny but this will disperse after 2 or 3 washes and becomes more natural. Malaysian hair is shinier, softer and silkier then Indian hair and will hold curls far better, however be careful not to overdo the hair oil as this can give the hair a typical “wiggy” and greasy look. Also if this hair is not taken hair of properly by applying regular conditioning treatments it will become dry causing it to tangle. You wont have to wash this hair that often because of its heavy density, you can be sure this hair will give you bounce and heavy body and is usually available in dark colours.

Peruvian Hair

Ideally this hair is suitable for African-American hair types and medium Caucasian hair types because of its thick and coarse texture. It has easy to manage qualities even if the hair has not been maintained properly and feels very lightweight. We recommend Peruvian hair for a sleek straight look and works great for short and edgy styles.
