Though there are many good hair types on the market these days, such as human hair, virgin hair, Brazilian hair, and Remy hair, Peruvian virgin hair extensions are known for being high-quality and luxurious. They are voluminous, lightweight, thick, and lustrous. One of their many perks is that they are incredibly versatile and can be styled in many different ways. For more information on the various aspects of Peruvian hair, click here. This article will be focusing specifically on Peruvian Body Wave hair.
Benefits of the Peruvian Body Wave
The body wave is a style of Peruvian hair extension that adds length and volume to your hair. This style is thinner than Brazilian body waves but thicker than Indian body waves. The great thing about this style is that it is very versatile. It blends well with both natural and relaxed hair. It has a loose, wavy texture. This hair is not straight but not curly. It is a happy medium for those who get bored with straight hair but don’t want too much bounce to their curls.
The Peruvian Body Wave is known for its bouncy, vibrant, and thick look. It is a multipurpose style of hair as you can do so many different looks with it. It is a very durable hair type and will last a long time if you keep good care of it.
The body wave does take a bit more work to maintain than Peruvian straight hair, but if you want those natural looking waves, you’ll want this style. You can, of course, straighten this hair as well. Obviously, it is not a good idea to straighten it everyday as it will cause damage much faster that way. For a full-looking head of hair, you only need three bundles of this hair as it adds a lot of volume!
Over time, the hair will become looser and look closer to a natural wave. This is unavoidable but if you want to maintain more of the wavy look you can curl it with a curling iron or with bendy rollers to recover the original shape.
How to Care for Your Hair
When caring for your hair, you should begin by using your fingers to detangle the hair. Always start from the ends and work your way up to the top of the head, as starting from the roots can cause breakage. You should then use a large tooth comb and a paddle brush to brush out your hair. For best results, wash your hair everyday with a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Use cold or mild water while washing your hair—not too hot. After washing, you can then apply a natural oil to your wet hair to make it shiny and silky! Let your hair extensions air dry.
You should avoid using heat styling tools if you want your hair to last a long time. However, if you must style your hair, be sure to use a heat protecting spray and to have your tools set to a low temperature! It is also a good idea to invest in a silk or satin headcover to protect your hair from frizz and breakage while you sleep.
