There are various types of weaves available. Virgin hair (hair that has never been processed) is the most popular grade of weave hair because it can be used for multiple installs and can also be color treated.

Black women have many different hair textures; luckily, there’s a variety of textures and types of weave that can suit just about any texture. The most sought-after types of weave are Brazilian, Peruvian, Indian, Malaysian, and Eurasian hair.

Each type of weave is characterized by a particular texture and comes in multiple wave patterns, including straight, wavy, deep wave, or tight curly. Let’s go over the best types of weaves.

Virgin weave is very easy to manage. Four key pointers to managing virgin types of weave are; (1) wash hair with sulfate-free shampoo and use moisturizing conditioners; (2) use a paddle brush and a wide tooth comb; (3) do not use a ton of oils on your hair; and lastly, (4) consult with a professional before using chemicals on your investment.
