Curly Virgin Indian hair

Before we dive into the looks its best to understand the different types of hair and how to care for them.

Indian hair is very high-quality hair in the beauty industry. People love it because the hair is very light, airy, full of bounce and easy to style. Indian hair usually comes in a natural straight and natural wave Indian hairstyle.

If you are looking for a natural wave style, then this is the hair for you. Indian hair is also trendy because it does not tangle, shed easily or lose its natural wavy look. Curly Indian hair is becoming very popular and high in demand.

What does virgin hair mean?

Virgin Indian hair is hair in its most natural form. It looks natural and behaves like hair that would be in your head. That is why it blends beautifully.

Also, if you take care of this hair just like your hair, it lasts for a very long time, sometimes even a year or more. So, if wearing long lasting, natural looking hair is important to you, virgin Indian hair is the way to go.

Virgin Indian hair is also pretty pricey. But in the long run, it is worth the initial investment because it lasts longer than the beauty supply store hair and is a much better value for your money.

Hair Care Tips for Indian Bundles

Here are a few steps you should follow to keep your hair fresh and those curls popping!

  • Get a moisturizing conditioner.
    You want to take generous amounts of conditioner and apply it from the top to the bottom of your hair. Please note that you don’t use this directly on your scalp.
  • Use your fingers to detangle.
    Take your fingers to remove the knots, always starting from the bottom going up. If your conditioner is creamy and has good slip, it is best to do this step at that time. Be gentle with your hair.
  •  Deep condition the hair often.
    This is just to make sure your hair is clean and stays fresh.
  • Protect Your Curls At Night.
    If you are sporting a wig, make sure to put your hair in its proper place. And if you have a weave, make sure to wrap your hair correctly to keep the curls from tangling.

Brazilian Kinky Curly/ Spanish Wave

Brazilian hair is typically soft, relatively thick and very durable.

For this reason, the hair is suited to any style, so it is always a great option whether you prefer a straight, wavy or curly style. Brazilian hair also handles color exceptionally well so if you buy Virgin Brazilian hair, you can color the hair to any color you like.

Due to the natural high density, you can also use fewer bundles to maintain a full look still. The best hair results occur when using less of it. It is this density that makes the hair not frizz as much as the other common types of hair like Indian or Malaysian hair.

It also holds curls much longer compared to Malaysian or Indian hairs. Because of its light texture, it is very flexible and easy to maintain. However, it does have a tighter curl when compared to the Indian type, and this makes it hard to flat iron.

Similarities to Indian hair

  • They all have natural movement and will never tangle or shed unlike non-Remy or non-virgin hair.
  • They are all available in wavy, straight or curly textures.
  • The colors are not even throughout the weft. You will get a few patches where strands maybe lighter or darker than the rest of the weft.

Differences with Indian hair

  • Hair density

The most significant difference between the two types of hair is the density. As stated before, Brazilian hair has a higher density than Indian hair which means you need fewer bundles to make the hair look full. Both types of hair are of high quality; it is up to the buyer to decide what is best for them.

Hair Care Tips for Both Types of Hair

  • A highly recommended tip is to air dry your hair. Air drying works for the two types of hair after washing and conditioning.
  • Perform a co-wash at least once in 2-3 weeks.Co-washing is only to condition the hair, no usage of shampoo is involved.
  • Try always to use a moisturizing leave-in conditioner. Avoid having to use any other grooming products between washes.
  • Use alcohol-free serums or products on hair. Using products without alcohol will not dry out the hair and make it frizzy. You also want to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioners to give your hair the best care.
  • Do not apply any thick oils on your hair as they will seep on to the hair extension, in turn weighing it down and resulting in restricted movement and potential tangling.

Best methods for installation

The two best ways to install the hair to give you the most options for styling are a lace front wig and a versatile weave.

Lace front wig

Lace front wigs are fantastic because they have an invisible hairline.

When worn correctly, the result is an undetectable hairline giving the illusion that the wig hair is growing out of your head. Lace wigs not only makes your hair look natural, but you can also achieve several different styles, unlike regular wigs.

Versatile weave

A versatile sew-in is when the wefts are placed into your head strategically leaving natural hair out.

The natural hair blends with the wefts. This style of installing a weave is excellent because of hair that is left out around the head; you can do several styles without having to worry about exposure of your wefts.

    These styles are too cute, I can’t wait to try some of these out with my new Brazilian silky straight lace front I just ordered from Dropship Bundles. I’m in the middle of adding products to my store, but it’s important to use your own products you sell. But I can’t wait to try these styles. This is my first time wearing a lace front and need dome styling tips and ideas. Thanks for this great post.

    I love this article. I am a Brazilian loose/deep wave lover! When I purchase hair, I usually keep my hair for a year to two years depending on the vendor. I usually get a wig made, but sometimes I love to get deep part sew ins.
