If you’re purchasing real human hair, it’s important that you get it to match with your natural hair color as much as possible. Then again, you can only look around for so long. As a last recourse, you can always have your stylist color the hair weave for you.
Go for Real Hair
If possible, avoid purchasing synthetic hair as they might end up being noticeably different from your natural hair. Since they are made from manufactured materials, they will require a different treatment and maintenance process, which can make your daily washing and styling a grueling task.
How to Tell
You can identify real human hair by looking at its strands or fibers – real hair should look and feel much like your natural hair than the synthetic ones. You can also use a flat-iron test; if it burns, it is most likely synthetic. Relying on labels or the products of reputable companies like Crownway Hair Company is also a good way to get your hands on natural, virgin hair weaves.
Should you want to have it permed, here are some valuable advice from About.com:
“A hairstylist can chemically treat human hair additions if you want another look. You can take a straight weave style and perm it so that it’s wavy or curly. If you’re not sure about chemically treating your own hair, experiment with a human hair weave to see if it’s something you like.”
If you follow these tips, you should find that your Brazilian hair weave will allow you to be as stylish as you could be without the frustrations of your hair not being long enough.
