Human Hair Texture Chart for Hair Extensions
“Your curl type is determined by the shape of the follicle that your hair grows out of from your scalp. The flatter or more oval-shaped the follicle, the curlier your hair; the more circular the cross-section, the straighter your hair. Your curl pattern is also identified by the shape that the strands of hair make, whether they kink, curve, or wind around themselves into spirals,” says hairstylist Vernon François.
Most people with textured hair have more than one type of pattern on their head, “so you may have a combination of, say, kinky, coily, wavy, and curly,” adds François. Identifying your curl shape and pattern (or patterns) is best determined while your hair is sopping wet.
A simple breakdown: Type 1s are straight, Type 2s are wavy, Type 3s are curly, and Type 4s are coily.
The sub-classifications of A to C are based on the width or diameter of your wave, curl, or coil pattern. Type As have a wider pattern size, Type Bs medium, and Type Cs the smallest of the three. “The real beauty of identifying your hair type is that you’re better at understanding how to care for your texture so you can have more versatility,

If you already have curly hair and want to buy extensions for your hair, this guide can help you find the curls that match your natural ones.
We have straight hair to body wave, loose wave, deep wave, deep curls, and kinky curly hair. So take a look at these 8 different textures you can choose from and get inspired to create a new look.

What if the texture does not match hair exactly?
You can style Remy hair exactly as you need to.
Malaysian Straight Hair Texture
Straight is the simplest hair extensions texture ever; it’s classic and usually looks great on everyone. It’s very easy to style, maintain, and take care of.
The best thing is that you can change hairstyles easily and play around with it to create new looks on a daily basis. A lot of people with naturally curly hair want to have straight hair because curls are often hard to style.
There are many different hair straightening methods like blow-drying (pretty self-explanatory), straightening creams that eliminate frizzy hair extensions and straighten your real hair, using straighteners (high heat treatment), chemical relaxers that work for 4 to 10 weeks (also known as lanthionization), Japanese thermal reconditioning, and keratin treatment that also shortens the overall blow dry timer by as much as 60%.
Cambodian Body Wave Texture
Since we make our straight hair extensions from 100% Remy hair, you can style them into curls or any other texture. It is as versatile as you can get.
A body wave is a loose type of curl that looks very natural and it flows nicely. It’s not completely straight but it’s also not too curly. It is like a happy medium of hair extensions.
Due to various misconceptions, and mislabeling a straight body weave hair may sometimes be Brazilian hair.
You can also liven up your natural curly hair with body wave extensions that are long-lasting and add a real boost to your hair.
Or you can achieve this look with a couple of hair rollers and use a hair straightener. Simply apply high heat and twist as you slide it from the hair roots to ends.
Burmese Loose Wave Texture
Loose wave extensions are similar to body wave in texture because it’s a very loose curl. The difference between body wave and the loose wave is that loose wave doesn’t flow in one piece like body wave.
Instead,it’s more loose like the name says and made by using a larger roller which makes it relaxed and soft. It has a great flow and it can be used on different hairstyles.
Cambodian Deep Wave
Deep have hair extension texture flows in smooth waves, but they are much deeper than body wave and that results in tighter curls.
hese are the closest wavy extensions you can get without looking too curly. It is like someone cranked the wave level to the max.
Deep wave is a great texture that looks really luxurious and boosts your hair volume. If you are buying deep wave extensions for the first time, please keep in mind that all hair is measured while straight, so the 20-inch straight extensions will look longer than 20-inch-deep wave extensions.
However, if you were to straighten the later, they would be of an equal length. Hopefully, that makes sense.
Cambodian Curly Texture
Deep curls are a bit tighter than a deep wave and they have a really cool natural look. Deep curls add a lot of body to your hair and create a funky curly look that is everything but boring. If you have naturally curly hair but lack length and thickness, or if your curls are damaged and hard to style, add deep curl extensions.
Extensions are always a great choice because they are easy to maintain and style and if you get bored with them, can always take them out and get back to your natural hairstyle without trouble.
The other benefit of deep curls?
If you get extensions, the texture is already pre-applied so you don’t have to add chemicals or heat treatment to your own hair.
When all is said and done, your hair will look healthier, fuller, richer, and you will be able to style it more easily.
Burmese Curly Texture
Burmese curly hair is a type of curly hair that also has a torsion twist and the hair basically turns around itself and has a zig-zag pattern.
Despite looking very strong, Burmese curly hair is very beautiful, so it is important to apply hair moisturizer and wash extensions with a sulfate-free shampoo that does not damage the hair.
Hair Texture Guides
Burmese curly extensions look absolutely fantastic and stylish. It’s no wonder why so many people who don’t have naturally kinky curly hair want this texture. The main problem with getting those tight curls is that you need a lot of hair because it can reduce your hair length by more than a half!
However, that is a minor sacrifice considering the looks you get from everyone passing by. It is the ultimate fashionista hairstyle.

Hair Extensions with Cambodian Hair Quality Hair – Perfect Hair Everyday!
Cambodian Hair is a common raw material for a high-quality hair extension. However, the processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure, the hair does not need to be thinned. The attached hair extensions will look natural even without this step.
Cambodian human hair can be bleached and subsequently dyed in different shades of color.
Hair Extensions with Malaysian Human
Malaysian Hair is a valuable raw material for a high-quality hair extension. The processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian and Chinese hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure meaning the hair does not need to be thinned.
Hair Extensions with Burmese Human Hair
Burmese is similar to Indian hair in its characteristics. This hair also does not have to be thinned out before making the hair extensions.
However, since Americas and Europeans have the same lineage, Burmese hair is even more similar to European hair than Indian hair is.
This type of human hair extensions is applied by looping the single-strand micro-bead extensions through your own hair and clamping down with a pair of pliers and a metal bead to finish. So pretty much, your entire head is covered in these little beads. You need to go to a professional for the application of micro-bead hair extensions.
Sewn-in/Weave Hair Extensions
Sewn-in weave hair extensions are those who have super thick, coarse, or naturally super curly hair. Your own hair is braided tightly into corn rows throughout your entire head, and the extensions are then attached using a needle and a thread.
A pro about these hair extensions is that they work super well for girls who have tons of hair that is thick and a coarse, however, a con is that the tight braids seriously strain your scalp, therefore they are not advisable for those who have thin hair.
Also consider hygienic reasons – it may be difficult to wash and condition the scalp because the entire scalp is covered in cornrows. You need to go to a professional for the application of sewn-in hair extensions as well as consistently visit the salon (even six weeks or so) to ensure that the extensions are still sewn in correctly into place and if the braids need to be tightened up again.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions is the fastest, easiest, and least damaging type of hair extensions which you can apply all by yourself without having to go to a professional. Clip-in hair extensions are a temporary method of hair extensions, which means you can clip them in and out whenever you want.
Clip-in hair extensions are ideal if you are looking to add length and volume to your hair without the commitment or breaking the bank. Clip-in hair extensions are a popular choice among women all over the world for bridal and bridesmaids’ hairstyles as they can greatly enhance any hairstyle.
You need to take off your clip-in hair extensions when you shower, sleep, or swim, however, clipping them in takes only about 5 minutes. Always choose real remy human hair extensions as you will be able to heat style and wash them just like your own hair.
High quality clip-in hair extensions will last you anywhere from 3-6 months up to a year or even longer, depending on how often you wear them and how well you take care of them. Malaysia Hair Imports raw human hair extensions are all high quality 100% real remy human clip-in hair extensions.
Tape in Hair Extensions
Tape in method of hair extensions involves taking each weft and literally taping them onto your own hair. The wefts are connected by wide bonds of tape and your own hair is placed between them and clamped around the strands.
Pros to this method of hair extensions is if you wear your hair extensions without a break, these can last in your hair for 6-12 weeks. Some cons to tape in hair extensions are that it can be difficult to tie your hair up how you want it since you can’t reposition the wefts after they are applied, and they can also begin tangling with your own hair as it starts growing out. You need to go to a professional for the application of tape in hair extensions.
Glue-in/Keratin Bond/Pre-bonded Hair Extensions
These hair extensions are attached to the hair with keratin bonds that are on top of the extensions, which are fused with a hot tool. This technique requires heat for application, and consistent visits to the salon to maintain them.
They can look great; however, it is best to not using oils, conditioners or any hot styling tools because this can weaken the bonds and make the extensions come out.
WHAT IS RAW VIRGIN HAIR?
Raw Virgin Hair is human hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles are intact. All hair sold by Malaysia Hair Imports is Raw virgin hair.
HOW CAN I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF MY HAIR PRODUCTS?
Your Cambodian, Malaysian, Burmese hair extensions and wigs should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft or top of wig cap and measure to the ends of the bundle. The Cambodian and Burmese Wavy, Cambodian Body Wave, Burmese Curly, and Kinky Curly hair extensions and wigs must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Again, start 0 at the weft; pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair.
Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new hair from Malaysia Hair Imports 100% Human Raw Virgin hair extensions can be styled like your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will.
Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
CAN I COLOR MY HAIR BUNDLES?
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Although our Raw Virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious.
Once the hair is chemically-altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed, causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button, and we will not be held liable for any damages.
DOES OUR HAIR SHED?
Minimally, no hair is absolutely perfect. We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there while detangling or styling, but nothing troubling or excessive. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts.
HOW LONG DOES THIS HAIR LAST?
Our 100% Human Hair Extensions and Wigs can last through multiple installs. However, the lifetime of your extensions depends heavily on how they are cared for. On average our customers can use their extensions from 6 to 8 months if cared for properly. Learn more about Caring for your Raw Virgin Cambodian, Malaysian and Burmese Hair Extensions
WHAT DOES CO-WASH HAIR MEAN?
Co-washing simply means washing with conditioner. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
When you first receive your extensions, it is important to co-wash the hair, as it has been through Malaysia Hair Imports is a direct factory manufacturers’ that hands, packaging, etc.
Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY HAIR?
All virgin hair reacts differently to product and regimens. Please be mindful to stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients.
Heavy oils are also not necessary to care for your extensions as it can weigh down your hair pattern. By rule of thumb, we recommend co-washing your bundles weekly and shampooing bi-weekly to rid your bundles of any excess product. Deep conditioning can be done as needed.
WHAT HAIR PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND I USE?
With no two heads being alike, our customers have a variety of experience with different textures as well as their daily maintenance of their extensions. Over the years we have collected knowledge regarding what works best.
Our customers highly suggest product lines such as Crème of Nature, Carol’s Daughter, Cantu, As I Am, and more. Even though our customers suggest these products, your extensions may not respond in the same manner.
HOW MANY HAIR BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. As all bundles are the same weight (3.3oz), the longer bundles have shorter wefts, and the shorter bundles have longer wefts. For a full sew-in, we recommend 3-4 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair.
If you desire an install with a lot of volume, you will need 4-5 bundles or 4 bundles with a closure. A closure is a great addition to your install, as you will have no leave-out. This is considered a full protective style, and none of your hair will be exposed.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PACKAGE?
We have a standard 24-48 hour processing time prior to the shipment of 5-7 business days all orders. This processing timeframe is subject to change due to sales or holidays. Please review our shipping methods to receive an estimated timeframe of received your package.
******NO SHIPMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON WEEKENDS NOR HOLIDAYS******
