Difference Between Hair Weave Textures and How to Maintain (Brazilian, Malaysian, & Peruvian)
I would first like to take the time to thank everyone for checking out the Hair-N-Paris Blog. Like always I will try to keep this blog as short as possible while providing what I believe to be the most important facts. I won't discuss all hair textures, I will only be covering the top selling textures for Hair-N-Paris. If you would like to skip the blog and purchase bundles instead feel free to do so! Click Shop Now! Otherwise, let's jump right into some basic virgin hair facts. All real human virgin hair has natural movement and should have little or no shedding and tangling. If you purchase from a company that claims to sell human virgin hair and it begins to shed and tangle excessively, then you have been duped. Hair-N-Paris sells 100% human virgin hair, that is the best quality hair at an affordable price and ships from the United States. Every texture of hair has slight processing to create the wave, silky straight or curl pattern. All bundles go through a process of washing and a natural steam processing to create the curl pattern. However, this process is NEVER chemical based, which is why the hair is still considered virgin hair. When the hair HAS NOT been chemically altered then we call it virgin hair. With Virgin Hair, you will notice the colors are not even throughout the entire bulk or bundle. The color will be in its natural form and not dyed or altered in any form. You will find a few strands lighter or darker than the rest of the weft. This is typical for virgin hair due to hair lightening from sun exposure before the donor donated the hair.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BRAZILIAN, MALAYSIAN, AND PERUVIAN HAIR
Brazilian Hair - Brazilian hair is one of the most common types of human virgin hair purchased. It is known for its silky texture. This hair has a natural shine to its appearance and smooth, soft feel to touch. Hair-N-Paris has Brazilian Hair available in wavy, straight or curly textures. Our Brazilian hair holds a curl very well and tends to hold curls longer than most other hair textures. Brazilian hair is soft and smooth and blends well with permed or texturized hair. Hair-N-Paris Brazilian hair can last for over a year as long as it is well maintained after install. It doesn’t require special maintenance, but washing and conditioning at least once a week goes a long way. Applying leave in conditioner in-between washes will keep your hair fresh and smelling great. If you have any questions you would like for me to answer please comment below.
Malaysian Hair - Malaysian hair can sometimes appear very shiny which does not last long. After the first few washes, the shine decreases and takes on a more natural appearance. If you are a person that loves the shinier look and would like to keep that appearance, use a shampoo and conditioner that protects and holds shine. Deep wave or curly Malaysian hair will not loosen or drop its curl with time, curls will maintain their form during the entire install period if properly cared for. Malaysian hair takes a little longer to straighten so it is best to straighten after a wash using a blow dryer with a comb attached then flat iron on medium-low temperature. If you are not going for a straight style after a wash, add leave in conditioner and allow your hair to air dry. It is not required to add hair products to Malaysian hair in order to maintain the curls, but I am a huge fan of leave in conditioner and it will always keep your curls looking hydrated. Malaysian hair has a natural shine appearance so avoid heavy oils, this could cause the hair to be weighted down and cause the hair strains to slip from the wefts causing shedding. Malaysian hair could be a great fit for a person with natural or texturized hair. If you are a natural hair wearer, flat ironing your hair would allow natural blending with Malaysian hair. If you love volume and thickness, Malaysian hair is a great option. Hair-N-Paris Malaysian hair comes in its natural color and is 100% human virgin unprocessed hair. Malaysian hair requires fewer washes than Brazilian hair, but you will need to use a great leave-in conditioner at least 3 to 4 time per week if not washed weekly. Again, if you have any questions please comment below.
Peruvian Hair – Peruvian hair is a little more coarse and thicker in texture than Malaysian or Brazilian hair. Peruvian hair blends best with natural African-American hair textures, flat ironing any leave out will help with blending. Hair-N-Paris Peruvian hair is 100% human virgin hair that has not had any chemical processing. Peruvian hair is extremely manageable and best for first-time weave wearer who might not maintain their sew-in properly. Peruvian hair is very easily straightened and styled. Peruvian hair has a very natural look to its appearance and requires the least amount of hair products. To give a little shine to Peruvian hair apply a very small amount of lightweight coconut oil, no more than once per week after a wash and condition.
