Extensions 101: Picking the Right Texture

Picking the right extensions isn't as easy as it sounds. You want your extensions to look natural, like it is growing out of your scalp. Therefore, it is important that the texture you pick blends with your hair in its natural state or when it is pressed. Our Pure and Hysteria collections are our silkiest hair collections. To blend with the Pure or Hysteria collection, your natural hair doesn't have to be NATURALLY straight, curly or wavy. It can, but if it is not, your hair should silken out nicely when pressed to blend well with the extensions. If you want to wear Pure Curly, Straight or Wavy and are worried about blending the texture with your natural hair, we offer closures so that blending won't be an issue.

Our BOUNCE and SEA collections have been through a three day steam process to achieve the textures. If your natural hair has a natural deep wave or a tight curl to it then our BOUNCE Deep Wave, Coil Curl or Organic Curl textures will blend well with your hair. If your hair isn't the natural texture of these tightly curled pieces, be sure you are able to manipulate your hair with heat, rollers, braids or twists to match the texture of your extensions. Our BOUNCE Natural Roots, BOUNCE Relaxed Straight and SEA Zen Straight textures are made to blend with natural African-American hair when it is straightened. If your hair is a little more thick and coarse than our Pure Straight texture then our straight textures in the BOUNCE and SEA collections will work well for you.

The same rules that apply to our Pure and Hysteria collections apply to our BOUNCE Beach Wave and SEA Tahitian curl extensions. These textures shouldn't have heat applied to them, however, you can apply heat to your natural hair to blend with these curl patterns. If your natural hair is fine or silky (or a similar texture can be achieved when heat is applied), simply curl it to match the texture.
