What is 3A/B, 3B/C, 3C,/4A, 4A/B, 4B/C?
3A/B curls are a loopy "S" pattern that are well defined and springy. These curls have a circumference the width of a piece of sidewalk chalk. Kurlnexis is recommended for this texture. 3B/C curls resemble tight corkscrews and are approximately the circumference of a straw or pencil. The curls are finer in texture, though packed tightly together. Koilistics will match this texture. 3C/4A curls are tightly coiled and densely packed together. These curls have a medium coarseness, giving it more volume. Kurlgenics is recommended for 3B/C textures. 4A/B curls are tightly coiled and have 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 mimics this texture. 4B/C curls are tightly coiled,very thick and coarse. The curl pattern is tight with numerous bends in each strand with little to no space between the curls. It feels like cotton and is usually very densely packed together. This texture also experiences a significant amount of shrinkage. Kinknetics is designed for this texture.
HOW MUCH HAIR WILL I NEED?
At least 2 bundles are needed for a full head. Lengths 16 inches or longer may require 3 bundles of hair as the longer the hair the shorter the wefts.
To preserve the hair and ensure longevity, finger combing is suggested. Co-Wash the extensions 1-2 times a month with Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner or Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. Leave some conditioner in the hair for more slip when detangling. 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. If you have clip-ins, co-wash each piece separately to minimize tangling. Rinse in cold water.
CAN THE HAIR BE TWISTED, BRAIDED OR BANTU KNOTTED?
Yes, all those styles can be achieved.
DO THE EXTENSIONS SHED?
You will experience minimal shedding, just like with your own hair. Sealing the wefts before installation will help to reduce shedding. We highly recommend that you use a generous amount of Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner or Herbal Essences Hello Hydration as a detangler (or a product comparable) and finger comb the extensions. If you choose to comb the hair, use a wide tooth comb and start from the bottom of the hair and work your way up.
HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR LAST?
Our hair is 100% Virgin hair and can last up to 1 year; however longevity of the hair is solely based upon your care and daily maintenance.
