Kinky/Curly Hair Weave Textures

Hair weaves or wholesale wigs are a fun and economical way to switch up your style because you can try different hair textures and patterns. Hair types can range from straight to wavy, curly, and kinky. Curlier hair textures are very low-maintenance. You don’t need any heat-styling tools to maintain them, and they bounce back into their curly style very easily after the curls are stretched out or straightened. Curly hair textures go from soft, bouncy curls, to tighter curls. Tight curls and kinkier patterns easily match and blend in with many women’s own kinkier hair textures.

Curly and Kinky Hair Trends for 2018

In recent years, curly and kinky hair textures have been especially popular. They blend easily with different natural hair textures, making them a popular hair choice. One of the curly hair texture trends for 2018 is a Brazilian hair curl pattern. This curl pattern falls into a softer, looser curl. It can blend easily with your natural hair if you braid your natural hair, let it set, and unbraid it.

Another trendy hair curl texture for 2018 is the body wave. Wavy sew-in hair has long been a favorite because you can wear it in a curly wave pattern, or it can straighten easily. When worn curly, it falls into a soft wave that gives a romantic look. When straightened with heat-styling tools, it has a smooth texture for a straight look that still has body and bounce.

For 2018, kinky curly textures are trendy. They come in different hair types, like Brazilian Kinky Curly or Peruvian Kinky Curly. Kinky curly hair textures are highly selected because they look very similar to African-American type 4 hair. These kinky curly textures blend seamlessly with natural type 4 hair patterns, and they can be worn curly, or braided or twisted to create more intricate hairstyles.

Lastly, the deep wave hair curl pattern is especially popular. This hair pattern is a more profound wave that looks similar to a curl but has the soft look of wavy hair. It can also be worn in its curly state for a more natural look or straightened into curls. The best thing about straightening curly hair textures is that they bounce back to their curls when cared for properly.

 How to Care for Your Kinky or Curly Hair

The curly and kinky hair textures that are on trend for 2018 can be worn curly or straightened. Either way, they should be cared for to keep the hair intact. Hair weave extensions that are cared for correctly have the potential to be reused over and over again. To care for your hair weave extensions, you want to use a gentle sulfate-free shampoo to cleanse them. Follow with a deep conditioner, and let the conditioner sit in the hair for several minutes before rinsing with cold water. Repeat the conditioning process until the hair feels soft and silky, then let it air dry.

Sometimes, you will need to refresh your curls in between washings. Instead of shampooing and conditioning the hair, you can use water to dampen the hair. This will help the curls “bounce back.” A small bit of curl setting gel or spray scrunched into the curls can help hold the curls in place and keep them looking soft and shiny. Avoid using any heavy products or anything that will weigh the hair down when wearing it curly. If you do straighten it, be sure to use a heat protectant to protect the hair from heat damage.

How to Select a Curly or Kinky Hair Texture

There are so many different curly or kinky hairstyles to choose from that you can change your style to suit your mood. If you are going on vacation, a kinkier or curlier style will give you a more bohemian and natural look. If you are looking for an everyday look, a wavy curl pattern is versatile and very sleek. If you have a very tight curl pattern then naturally, a kinkier curl pattern will blend more seamlessly with your natural hair.

Look at the styles that your favorite celebrities wear for inspiration. Beyoncé is currently on tour, rocking a kinkier deep wave curly look. Celebrity talks show host Adrienne Bailon enhances her natural hair with sleek body wave extensions. Entertainer Amara Negra wears a very kinky curly texture to bring out the beauty of her features and her own naturally kinky-curly afro.

How to Pick Your Curly Hair Length

No matter which hair texture you choose, remember that curly and kinkier hair textures will shrink up to look shorter. The kinkier or curlier the hair textures, the more it will shrink when curly. So, a body wave hair texture will look a few inches shorter than it is, while a kinkier hair texture can look ten inches or so shorter than it actually is.

When you choose a hair texture, consider how long you want the hair to look, and where you want it to fall on your body. Then, look at how many inches shorter that curl pattern will be. Always opt for longer inches than you might need. You can easily cut the hair shorter if it’s too long.

Enjoy Your Kinky or Curly Hair Texture

The best thing about curly or kinky hair textures is that you can have fun with them! They are easy to maintain, don’t require any styling tools, and they are a carefree look for every day, or during a vacation. Whichever curly or kinky hair texture you choose, enjoy it!
