Indian virgin hair is one of the most common and widely available hair types on the market today. Since India has an enormous population, with a large number of women who donate their hair for religious purposes regularly, India produces much of the worlds best virgin hair extensions. In fact, the majority of hair on the market today is actually Indian hair that is processed in other countries and given different names based on characteristics such as density and texture.
Indian virgin hair has a very fine density and has a light bouncy feel to it. This makes it easy to curl and style. With textures ranging from silky to coarse, Indian virgin hair is a great choice if you like hair that is versatile and flexible when it comes to styling. A great fit for all hair types, Indian hair is a consistent contender for the best hair available today. Indian hair is a popular choice because its texture and color are easily matched to many ethnicities, especially relaxed African American hair. Although it may become frizzy in moist temperature, quality Indian hair will be able to maintain its silky texture for months if well treated and cared for.
Malaysian hair is soaring in popularity and has become a hit among celebrities. Have you ever noticed that luxurious and sleek look of the stars? In many cases, that’s Malaysian hair at its best. Similar to Brazilian hair, the luster and shine of Malaysian hair is clear but not too sleek and oily looking. Great for holding curls, Malaysian hair can maintain curly and wavy styles without the need for additional products. Colors range from very dark to near black, with some lighter colors being less common, but just as beautiful.

Extremely thick and beautifully dark, this hair can require less bundles to give a strong, full body look. Although it’s more coarse and thicker than Malaysian or Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair is as light as a feather. This hair is one of my favorites and blends well with multiple relaxed hair textures and ethnicities.
Brazilian hair is one of the most sought after hair types in the world. How come? Well, its soft feel, durability and thickness make this one a guaranteed beauty. It is also not sourced from temples which makes the hair hard to come by. That scarcity drives the price up and makes this one of the most luxurious types of hair to have.

The texture of true Brazilian hair blends will with all types of ethnicities from Caucasian to African American and will give a full body look straight out of the package. With a low to medium luster and natural density, Brazilian virgin hair will require less bundles to create a full look. Brazilian hair will hold a curl longer than Indian and Malaysian Hair and its also less likely to frizz up from moisture. An amazingly beautiful choice.
Russian hair is simply silky, glossy and gorgeous and is considered by many to be the best quality hair extensions ever.
