The mere mention of the word ‘weave’ is often associated with Brazilian hair.

· The most prominent colors are rich brown, black, and their mid-tones.

· Brazilian hair is ideal for someone looking for thick and bouncy hair.

· Virgin Brazilian hair can be easily and practically transformed into different styles and colors using dye.

If you are the kind of person who prefers hair extensions that is soft to touch and much silkier and shinier than Indian hair, then Brazilian hair is your preferred type of hair.

Unlike Peruvian hair which matches well with Caucasian hair, this type is perfect for an Afro-Caribbean blend.

Brazilian hair can last long if properly cared for and requires very little maintenance.

· It comes in natural dark or light brown color. Sometimes you may find a slightly blonde shade.

· Peruvian hair is available in naturally straight, and curvy styles.
