Body Wave

Body Wave Hair Texture Extensions

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. The only problem with getting a body wave is that the curls start to relax and almost disappear over time. But it’s still a great option if you’re bored with your straight hair or if you have natural curls that need a bit of styling and rejuvenation. 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.

Loose Wave

It is made by using a larger roller and that’s the reason why it’s so loose and soft. It has a great flow and it can be used on different hairstyles. Since loose curls can relaxed over time, proper care and maintenance is extremely important. Moisture is the key for protecting your curls.

Deep Wave

Deep Wave Hair Texture Extensions

This hair texture flows is smooth waves, but they are much deeper than body wave and that results in tighter curls. Deep wave is a great texture that looks really luxurious and boosts your hair.

Deep Curls

Extensions are always a great choice because they are easy to maintain and style and when if you get bored with them, you can always just take them out and get back to your natural hair style without much trouble.
