KinkGenetics extensions are 100% virgin human hair and is for 4A-4B naturalistas. 4A-4B is tightly coiled hair that has an "S" or "Z" pattern. The circumference of the spirals is close to that of a crochet needle. This hair type often experiences shrinkage up to 75% of its actual hair length. KinkGenetics comes in its natural color - #1b which is blackish/brown.
All hair is measured straight. This means you lose about 4 inches. For example, 16 inches is 16 inches when straight, but 12 inches with the curl pattern.
Quantity Needed: In order to do a full head you'll need 2 bundles. If you desire a fuller look, 3 bundles should be purchased. Lengths longer than 16" require 3 bundles as the longer the hair, the shorter the weft.
Maintenance: KinkGenetics does require more maintenance because of the tight curl pattern. To preserve the hair and ensure longevity, finger combing is suggested. Wash the hair weekly/biweekly and use Kinky Curly Knot Today for more slip when finger combing. If you choose to comb the hair, use a wide tooth comb (preferably a detangling brush) and start from the ends then work your way up.
Products - Shea Moisture products (specifically Curl Enhancing Smoothie), Eco Styler gel and Kinky Curly Knot Today works well with KinkGenetics extensions. This hair needs moisture and takes moisturizing products well.
This product is WEFTED hair. Clip-Ins are also available in this texture.
