Human Hair Types and Textures

Human Hair Types and Textures
For Weaves

100% Unprocessed Virgin Cuticle Hair
Virgin hair is 100% natural hair that has not been processed in way. Because virgin hair has not been colored, permed or processed, it is 80% less likely to tangle during washing and regular maintanance. You can color virgin hair as desired without worrying about over-processing.

Virgin hair is available in Indain Virgin, Chinese Virgin, Malaysian Virgin, Mangolian Virgin and Russian Virgin.

100% Indian Remy (Silky)
This texture is silky and fine like that of a person of Indian origin. Indian hair, even when “straight”, has a natural wave to it. Indian hair is easier to curl and holds curls better and longer than Chinese hair.

This texture is very popular and looks natural on most African Americans and Latinas.

Chinese Remy (Silky)
Chinese Remy is silky and is generally thicker in diameter than Indain Remy. As a result, Chinese hair tends to be heavier and thicker than Indian hair. It does not hold curls as well as Indian hair.

Chinese Remy hair is superior when it comes to straight, sleek styles – after you wash it, it dries virtually straight and requires less styling.

Indian/Chinese Remy Fine Yaki (African American Fine Relaxed)
This texture resembles a lighter, finer African American relaxed texture. It is finer than our light Yaki African American Relaxed. This texture is a happy medium between our Light Yaki and our Silky Textures.

Suitable for an African American/Black woman who wants a natural looking – but finer – African hair texture.

Indian/Chinese Light Yaki (African American Relaxed)
Light Yaki resembles African American Hair that has been permed/relaxed. This texture is very natural and “believable” on African American/Black Women.

Indian/Chinese Remy Kinky Straight
This texture resembles African American “pressed” or “blown-out” hair. It can also be flat ironed and curled straight. The hair will return to it’s original texture once wet or washed.

Suitable for an African Amercian/Black woman after a natural, realistic look.

WET N WAVY:
Small curl pattern. Traditional wet and wavy texture.

EURO WAVY:
Mixture of Spanish wave, and European Straight.

SPANISH WAVY:
Deep body wave texture, can be blown dry straight or roller set. Offers volume and bounce. Roller sets last long with this texture. Can be flat ironed straight.

SEMI STRAIGHT:
Loose bodywave texture, can be blown straight.

RELAXED STRAIGHT:
Silky straight hair with very little texture.

EUROPEAN STRAIGHT:
Straight silky European hair.

PERM STRAIGHT:
Blend of Relaxed straight and yak, best for coarse textured hair.

YAKI PERM STRAIGHT:
Straight hair with texture. Best for coarse textured hair.

SOFT KINKY STRAIGHT:
Mixture of French refined and relaxed straight. Similar to body wave texture without the shine when wet. Looks like a soft press when blown straight. Can be flat ironed for a sleeker look.

KINKY STRAIGHT:
Mixture of French refined and yak. Straight when wet. Straight with a little kink.

AFRO KINKY:
Tight afro kinky curl, 4a curl pattern. Creates fluffy Roberta Flack type afro.
