10 Natural Hair Extensions Brands You Need to Know

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!

    “International Hair Company carries hair extension options for the lady with a looser or less-kinky

    the curl pattern of these textures …” THANK YOU <3 This article is amazing. I'm a black woman, but I don't have kinky hair & it's hard for me to find extensions as time because while I do have actual looser curls, the extensions I see are either TOO loose or just kinky. Rana Campbell, you did an awesome job with this post.

    Big Chop hair is horrible. I had it in my head for a month and it is all ratty and gross now. Before I went natural, I was an avid weave wearer and when I had good weave I was able to weave it for 2-3 months, take it out, rewear it maybe one or two more times and then turn it into clip ins. This hair didn’t even make it through the first sew in. I got 2 bundles of the corkscrew hair in 16inch. Loved it initially! It was so cute and full. I had a partial sew in. After about a week I could tell there were problems. I was always detangling and losing lots of hair, even when I was following all of the proper measures to detangle like holding the root and starting form the bottom. SO many knots and it was just bad. Cute while it lasted I guess, but for that money I could have just rocked my own fro and invested in some great products…or bought a purse or something. I would not recommend. I have yet to try Hergivienhair, but next time I would spend the extra and see how that works out.
