Ask An Expert: What is the Distinction Between Brazilian & Indian Hair
Our knowledgeable this month is Dafina Nya Smith, Owner and artistic Director for Sunny’s Hair & Wigs in Atlanta — a household-owned and operated magnificence brand in existence for over 20 years.
Query: I’m finally making the switch from buying artificial weaves and wigs to investing in dearer “top shelf” human hair. That stated, what’s the principle distinction between Brazilian and Indian hair and which do you recommend I purchase
I have a perception that your weave is only as great because the hair you utilize. You’ll be able to go to the world’s greatest “Weavologist” and when you buy “Non-Remy Magnificence Provide Store” hair you would possibly as well flash a neon signal announcing “My hair is fake”. I completely applaud you for stepping into the world of premium hair. That being stated there is a variety of mis-details about premium hair extensions. A soiled little secret of the trade is that the majority hair is mis-labeled and mis-leading because it is not a government regulated business.
With a couple of exceptions, a lot of the hair obtainable in large business portions is both Indian Hair or Chinese hair. Indian Hair is wonderful as a result of it is usually a pure dark brown, finer and not too shiny so it happens to blend amazingly well with African American hair. There are some exceptions though. From my experience, Indian hair blends higher with natural hair as a result of their cuticles are less ragged and reflect mild higher therefore is shinier than relaxed hair.
99% of the time Brazilian hair, Peruvian Hair or Malaysian hair is actually hair from India or China that has been processed. For instance, when I’m going to India I am often buying massive quantities of hair alongside Brazilians who purchase the curly Indian hair and course of it with steam to ship tighter 99j kanekalon braiding hair curls and remarket it as Brazilian hair with a premium price tag placed on it. Malaysian hair is commonly Chinese Hair blended with Indian Hair for sleeker and shinier look. Give me a rustic and that i may go on and on; however I won’t!
So to reiterate, there are usually two kinds of hair available on the final market: Indian Hair and Chinese Hair. Of the two, I all the time advocate Indian Hair for black ladies especially women who’re natural. While you purchase Indian Hair I would suggest Virgin & Remy Indian Hair which means the hair has never been chemically processed for colour or texture which ensures the cuticle integrity is strong and all in the identical direction so the general health of the hair is ideal for long-time period wear.
