Things you need to consider when choosing hair weaves.
1. Hair types
You should buy hair weaves based on the texture of your hair. Hair weaves are usually mixed with your natural hair, so you make sure your natural head is natural and beautiful when mixed with hair weaves. If you have straight or wavy hair, avoid wearing curly hair weaves because it doesn’t look attractive and may even be difficult to manage.
If your hair is curly, don’t use straight hair weaves because they don’t blend well. You need to iron your hair every day and it will damage your hair.
