This is a question that is asked so frequently.

From personal experience I know that when choosing hair it is easy to go for the type that you have heard the most about. Without putting much thought people tend to buy the most types such as Brazilian and Peruvian hair without considering other hair types.

We all have such different hair types and textures, therefore it is important to cater to those differences in order to get the hair that looks the best on you and blends the most.

We at Sierra May Luxury Hair feel it is simply unfair to dive into the hair extensions and weave market without being fully aware of the pros and cons of different types of hair! This is why we have put together a little fact file on the types of hair we sell, which includes: Brazilian and Peruvian hair.

Virgin Brazilian Hair:

I know that when the word “weave” is said it is often associated with Brazilian hair. But what is so good about Brazilian hair? The features of Brazilian Hair are determined by the region and genetics of the hair.[Virgin Brazilian Hair]Virgin Brazilian Hair

Brazilian Hair is coarse in texture and heavy in density.
It comes in styles of naturally straight, wavy or curly.
The colors are usually in black or off black to rich brown.
Brazilian Hair is good if you want thick, bouncy hair.
The virgin hair is practically very easy to transform into your preferred colours and styles. You can dye it, change color, or give any texture you want.

The hair is good for blending in with Afro-Caribbean and this is why a lot of Afro-Caribbean women go for this hair, not only that it comes in a variety of styles and is very versatile.


Virgin Peruvian Hair:

In recent times Peruvian has seen a rise in popularity. What would cause people to choose Peruvian over Brazilian? The population of Peru is a mix of Indian and Spanish immigrant heritage. Peruvian Hair is coarser and thicker than Brazilian hair. The thicker your hair the better it blends with Peruvian hair.

It grows naturally straight, wavy or very curly.
It comes in natural colors of dark or light brown, and sometimes in the less occurring slightly blonde shades.
It will provide you with the strength, body of Brazilian hair with the smoothness of European hair.

Be careful to not buy too many packs of Peruvian hair, as it will look overfull and square. The hair lays thick so you will need less bundles to give the desire effect.
