Where do girls go to find a weave that mimics their natural hair texture?
Historically, women with naturally curly or kinky hair have struggled to find hair extensions that match their unique hair texture. The market has long been saturated with hair companies that cater to the lady who wants a full head of Malaysian curly or straighter-than-straight 24″ virgin Indian hair. However, not every lady wants to rock hair extensions that have no trace of kink or with curls that are too loose or shiny.
Within the past few years, entrepreneurs have responded to the growing dilemma that many naturals face of finding a hair company that sells weave that looks like their hair in its natural state. The versatility of wearing natural hair extensions means that you don’t have to do as much manipulation (such as straightening or curling) to get the two textures to match. You also can experiment with coloring and styling that you may not want to do on your own hair. Better yet, others are less likely to know that you’re wearing extensions. Who doesn’t get tired of the age-old question, “Is that a weave?”
Here’s our list of 10 hair companies that sell naturally-textured hair extensions for the gal with kinky/curly hair. Most of the companies offer a variety of options including wigs, clip-in wefts, closures, and sew-in extensions. Scroll through to see our top picks for best hair extensions brand!
