How to Choose the Best Hair for Your Hair Type

Choosing the right extensions can be overwhelming. You want something that is comfortable, that will fit you well, and that looks natural on you. With so many different types of extension hair on the market, it's hard to know exactly which one is best for you. Towards that aim, here is a list of different hair types, to help you determine which one fits you the most.

Peruvian Straight Hair

Extensions made of Peruvian Straight Hair are generally aimed towards women of African descent, since they fit in very well with African skin and hair tone. They can be styled and curled, but naturally appear extremely straight. They can be a good choice for warm weather, as it will breath better than most extensions.

Brazilian Wave Hair

Brazilian Wave Hair extensions are also designed for African women. Though more difficult to style than Peruvian, they have much more fullness and body to them, with a beautiful natural waviness. They can be curled, tied back in a ponytail, anything you would do with natural hair. As a style of “virgin” hair, Brazilian Wave Hair still contains the cuticles of the hair, which lends itself to a very natural look.

Virgin European Hair

Virgin European Hair is best used for anyone with very fine hair, hair that is brittle, or hair that doesn't have enough body. Designed to be used by women of Caucasian descent, the European hair comes in a number of colors and varieties, mostly on the lighter end of the spectrum. Just like Brazilian, this European hair is virginal, i.e., contains the original cuticles, and it is extremely soft.

Remy Human Hair

Remy hair is considered to be the highest quality hair on the market. Not only is it a style of virgin hair, but it is extremely well tended. None of the artificial processing that goes into other hair styles goes into Remy, and instead, Remy hair is treated with special processes skin to the treatment of cashmere. Remy hair can come in a number of different colors and styles, and isn't aimed at any particular ethnicity. As the highest quality hair on the market, Remy Human Hair can be quite expensive.

This is by no means a comprehensive list of hair types for extensions. There are dozens, perhaps hundreds of different options, and it is always best to do what independent research that you can. These are some of the more prominent categories, however, and should hopefully push you in the direction of your beautiful new extensions.
