An introduction to weaves and hair extensions
Hair extensions are not only fashionable but also help you achieve a great look! You can have long hair in an instant by weaving extensions to your roots or even add a dash of color with highlighted extensions. Add some instant curls for the fresh party look or have wavy extensions for the laid back beach look. They are perfect for a special day when you have to look great but don’t have enough time to grow your hair or style them.
There are many different types of hair extensions and weaves available in the market however on this website we’re going to focus on kinky curly weaves. I’m going to help you by giving you some great information that you simply can’t get anywhere else!
What are kinky curly weave extensions?
Kinky curly weave hair extensions are one of the most popular hair extensions among African-American women in the United States and around the world for that matter. This type of hair extension and look has been made popular by celebrities in both music and movie industry. The likes of Rihanna, Brandy and many other celebrities have been seen wearing them at popular events. Here’s an article on how Janet Jackson, Rihanna and more celebs had weave hairstyles at the BET awards ceremony from hypehair.com.
There are different versions available with most online searches being dominated by terms like Brazilian, Mongolian, Malaysian, Indian, Virgin, Natural, Human hair, Yaki and more. Here’s a quick overview of these different variations:
Brazilian: When a product is listed as being Brazilian kinky curly hair it is often times referred to as extensions created from hair of Brazilian women. Sometimes they can also be related to the style itself.
Virgin hair: You might or might not know at this point that both virgin and synthetic products are available on the market. Often times virgin hair refers to natural hair that came from a real person or human which was not handled by chemicals or synthetically produced. The overall feel is that the virgin hair is best in terms of quality, shine and last the longest. For specifics check the product you’re trying to purchase as not all weaves are made the same or created equal.
Peruvian and Malaysian: Watch the video in the next section for more about Peruvian and Malaysian.
Brazilian kinky curly vs Peruvian vs Malaysian
I found a wonderful video explaining some of the differences between Brazilian kinky curly weave, Peruvian and Malaysian. In short, the Brazilian hair (when it comes to human / virgin products) is very versatile and can be styled in many different ways. This type of hair also has the ability to hold very nice curls which results in the opportunity to try out many different styles. Watch the video below this section for a detailed explanation and comparison.
Benefits of using kinky curly weave extensions
Kinky curly weave hair extensions are tangle free, and normally made of high-quality human hair (depending on the quality of the product you choose to buy off course), therefore with the correct care they can last for quite some time.
Weaves have become very affordable because of competition in the market place and the demand for this product. The amazing looks they can bring isn’t just for celebrities and the rich anymore – normal people like you and me can also afford to look great!
Kinky curly weave hair extensions can save you time by giving you an instant brand new look only minutes after installation. Instead of spending hours at the beauty salon you can spend your time doing a long list of other exciting things that would be better time spent.
Kinky curly weave hair extensions are definitely in fashion, so instead of painstakingly trying to grow your hair or style it yourself, you can just purchase the weave of your choice and attach the extensions yourself. These extensions are also available in a variety of different colors, lengths and styles. This means you can try out lots of different styles and surely find one that suites your taste.
Using these hair extensions is a cost effective way of styling your hair. Extensions enable you to save the money you would normally spend at the beauty salon.

Costs and where to buy your weaves?
Prices for these hair extensions range anywhere from $25-$200+ and up depending on the quality, look your after, where you buy it from (online store vs local store), whether it’s natural or synthetic hair and things like the brand.
There are many shops selling kinky curly weave hair extensions online but at the moment the most popular ones, where prices and the selection is the best, include Aliexpress, Amazon and Ebay. I would recommend buying your beauty products from Amazon as they have a great selection to choose from, many reputable buyers and a lot of reviews to help you make the best decision.
