When choosing a hair weave, black women should select the best hair weave for their particular needs.
Choose High-Quality Hair
Most weave hairs originate in Asia and can be processed to virtually any appearance. If black women who want high quality weave hair, they can select Remy virgin hair which is considered one of the highest quality weaves a woman can buy.
Human vs. Synthetic Hair
For hair weaves, black women have two choices: human or synthetic hair. Synthetic hair is suitable for braided extensions, but its use is limited. For instance, it cannot be curled, permed and colored.
Straight Weave vs. Curly Weave
Black women always buy weaves that are bone straight with no amount of curl can look unrealistic since they have highly textured hair.
However, some black women don’t want straight weaves, and they love curly or kinky weaves, especially if they want to see how they will grow with a natural hair or they are relaxing.
Sewn-in vs. Glued
Usually, sewn-in weaves are more suitable for black hair, because a woman wears beneath the weave protects her natural hair from daily wear. What’s more, sewn-in weaves last longer as well.
Glued-in weaves are intended to be worn for a very short period of time, not longer than a week. Besides, when removing hair weaves, you should be very careful to prevent pulling your hair out with it.
Although human hair costs considerably more than synthetic, a woman should buy the 100% of the hair or “Remy” hair she can afford since human hair not only looks more realistic but also be healthier for her hair and scalp.
