If you are looking for a non-surgical solution for your bald patches, hair weaving is the perfect solution. Hair weaving is all about adding hair to your bald patches or adding natural or synthetic hair to your existing original hair. There are different types of hair weaving, and also there are different types of hair weaves available in the market. Nowadays, both men and women are attracted to the hair weaving method because of its low expense and durability. Unlike using hair wigs, hair weaving provides a 98% natural look.

Different Types Of Hair Weave

I. Based on the textures of hair weave

1. Natural texture weave hairstyles

After collecting from donors, hair suppliers wash hair and then sew it together to make hair weave bundles without any chemical-treated process. Because hair suppliers don’t implement any chemical process on this type of hair, the hair weave can keep its natural texture and the price of this type is quite affordable.

If you are looking for natural straight virgin hair, the best ones are Russian hair, Vietnamese hair, and Brazilian hair. Meanwhile, you can find a naturally wavy texture in Eurasian hair, Peruvian hair, and Burmese hair. Different hair weave types are also based on straight and wavy origin. They are primarily from Cambodia, Eurasia, and Indonesia.

2. Bone straight weave hairstyles

Bone straight hair is a type of straight hair which is straight from the root to the tip of the strands. You can identify the difference between bone straight hair and natural straight hair very easily by putting them side by side. The bone straight is often highly straighter than the normal one.

Wet-wave-woven hairstyles are in, especially during the summer. It gives a fun beach vibe that you can customize to your likings, such as adding some hairpins or braiding pieces of hair. If you are looking for a volumized hairstyle that is not too wild, this is one of the hair weave textures you must try.

II. Based on the origins of hair weave

1. Vietnamese hair

If you have been around the hair industry, it is impossible not to know the beauty of Vietnamese hair. It is the most popular type of hair weave. Raw Vietnamese hair is dark, like any other Asian hair, and thick, which is common in Southeast Asian countries.

But what makes their hair stand out from all others is the lifestyle of the Vietnamese women, who affect the quality of the raw materials, making it naturally smooth, soft, and shiny. That is why most of the hair sold is 100% virgin since there is no need for chemicals to make the hair wigs beautiful.

The hair has less damage and is more durable because of the donors. 80% of the hair came from women ages 18–25 living in high mountains. Women in Vietnam rarely straighten their hair with heat or chemicals. Overall, the highlight of this hair is its natural thickness and quality.

2. Indian hair

For those who want a mix of Asian and Caucasian hair, Indian hair is the best choice as it blends into both naturally. Although Caucasian brands are high-end, it is not true for hair weaves. The hair used to make the product is sourced from Hindu women. They donate their hair after their ritual of shaving their hair.

Their religion also avoids chemically treating their hair, so you can rest assured that their hair is virgin grade. If you have seen Bollywood movies, you know how thick and gorgeous their hair is. The thickness of the hair makes the hair weave more durable, which is excellent for daily use.

3. Brazilian hair

Despite the name, this hair weave mostly comes from Asian countries rather than Brazilian women. There are only a few hair extensions that came from the country. Not all hair weaves are a virgin, as some clean the hair and condition it to prolong its life.

Brazilian hair is perfect for people who love styling their hair. It is versatile and can hold curls well even if the hair extension is initially straight. The hair is soft but thick, which makes doing hairstyles easy. You can also dye and cut it to your liking and use hot irons and curlers.

This type of hair weave will need detangling from time to time as it acts like natural hair, and natural hair will always tangle. However, it doesn't frizz up easily if you wash it regularly and apply conditioner and other hair products to protect it.

4. Cambodian hair

Khmer hair, or the hair that has been ethically gathered from Cambodian donors, is undeniably lush and beautiful yet easy to manage. It has three woven hair textures: straight, wavy, and curly. Cambodian hair weave tends to have a slight gritty texture, which makes it particularly resistant to being styled.

You can test it at higher temperatures as it can resist it more than most other hair weaves. Thus, it can curl nicely. It can also undergo bleaching and dyeing without risking a loss of its quality.

5. Eurasian hair

This type of hair is most likely to suit any type as it has the mixed characteristics of European and Asian hair. It is a bit rare as it must come from Eurasian women. This hair weave is primarily black and brown and silky smooth with a wavy texture, but it can also be straight or curly. It is well-volumized and of noticeably high quality.

Eurasian hair weave is not always virgin, but it can also be Remy when it has undergone dying. For virgin and raw, the cuticles are all placed in the same direction, which makes it look more natural and gives the illusion that it is growing out of your scalp. Since the hair is rare, expect that it will be pricey.

6. Peruvian hair

Peruvian hair is somewhat rough and thick, commonly with a wavy texture. Because of its appearance, it looks natural on African American women as it mimics their relaxed hair. The hair from Peru is naturally thick and full, making it durable but also lightweight.

Despite wearing five bundles, you will barely feel the extra weight. People love this hair weave as the silkiness and softness are so flattering when making hairdos. The Peruvian hair weave does not frizz during humid weather. If the hair is virgin, there will be no problem when dying it.

III. Based on the material of the hair

1. Synthetic Hair Weaves

These are fake hairs that are made from human-made fibers. Even though they are cheaper in the price range, it does not offer a natural look. You cannot curl or dye synthetic hair weaves in a natural way. Moreover, synthetic weaves are least preferred in hair weaving as they are less durable and difficult to manage.

2. Human Hair Weaves 

Human hair weaves are the best weave for blending natural hair. As its name suggests, they are made of human hair in many countries. As a result, they have all characteristics of human hair like your own natural hair. It offers a realistic look, long durability, and can withstand the use of heat equipment. Human hair weaves are of different types.
