What are Malaysian Hair Extensions and, when the ethnicity of hair matters

We’ve walked you through Brazilian hair and Peruvian hair extensions.

Now we’re back again talking to you about Malaysian human hair. You’ve read all of our articles on hair extensions yet still have lingering questions on how to distinguish between all of these types of hair. I don’t know anything about my own hair and even less about  hair on somebody else’s head, you say. We heard you politely make the point that you’ve never even been to Brazil or Peru, and now we’re sending you to Malaysia? For what? Hair?  You weren’t trying to be rude or anything, it’s just that honestly, why do they have to turn a simple weave into rocket science?

Hair extension gurus know how to easily switch from Brazilian to Peruvian, to Malaysian, and back again, in the twinkling of an eye. But even you gurus were once in her shoes. So, hopefully you can still relate.  Besides, you probably know someone in this same situation and it’s always a positive thing to share your knowledge, particularly if it will help someone.

A lot of people will tell you to only shop Brazilian virgin hair because it’s top quality. Though this is true, don’t turn your nose up  at Malaysian virgin hair just yet. In fact, before you hate on it, contemplate this:

Malaysian virgin is another type of hair extension or weave that’s popular on the market right

alongside Brazilian and Peruvian. As the name suggests, it comes from the south-east Asian country of Malaysia. What’s important here is that Malaysian virgin hair holds its own right up there with the others. It’s one of the best quality hair extensions available.  It’s the extension of choice for women who like low-maintenance hair that looks authentic and retains this authenticity over time.

The hair extension itself was invented by an American hairdresser named Christina Jenkins.  When it comes to weaves, the ethnicity of the hair, meaning its source, is a very important consideration because certain features and characteristics including texture and lustre (among others) can be peculiar to each type of virgin hair.

Key Characteristics of Malaysian Virgin Hair

Long curl life: Curls are long-lasting and don’t require extra products in order to maintain them.

Extremely silky and soft, with high natural luster: This is a very prominent characteristic. Added to this is its long life-span .

Low maintenance:  Because of its density, Malaysian remy hair extensions need less washing compared to other kinds of virgin hair, and can be reused over and over again while retaining its softness, smoothness, and fullness of texture.

Exceptional strength: This is one of the strongest types of virgin hair available, which is why it holds curls so well.

Highly voluminous and luxuriously thick: Malaysian virgin hair is your best bet when volume and thickness are critical. For example, go Malaysian if your hair is thin and needs an extra boost of  volume. It provides beautiful bounce and dense body.

But let’s be honest, these hair extensions are not cheap, and with so many types of virgin hair out there, you want to make sure that you know what you’re buying, how to care for it, and above all, that it works well for your hair and the look or looks that you’re trying to achieve.

Now that you’re armed with some inspiration, the next thing to do is gain an understanding of how to install and remove your weave. If you can install Peruvian virgin hair, then removing Malaysian hair will be just as easy.

How To Uninstall Your Malaysian Hair Weave

Care & Styling Tips for Malaysian Virgin Hair Extensions

  • A lot of people don’t like it when their hair shines too much. Remember that Virgin Malaysian hair takes on a more natural look and lustre after the second or third wash.
  • Due to its natural shine and luster, using oils on Malaysian virgin hair can make it look fake.
  • Since Malaysian hair is endowed with thickness, it easily takes on a dry appearance, so it’s important to keep it properly moisturized.
  • Avoid drying your hair with high heat. Instead, air dry it as much as possible.
  • Protect your hair by wrapping it before you go to bed. Malaysian virgin hair is not known to tangle. Treat it well and you won’t get any bad surprises.

Benefits of using Malaysian Hair Extensions

  • Malaysian hair blends very well with relaxed hair.
  •  Malaysian wavy hair is great for women of African/Afro-Caribbean descent.
  • Malaysian virgin hair blends very well with African-American hair
  • Available in shades ranging from dark brown to natural off black.
  • Curls remain firmly intact, even after 2 or 3 washes.
  • Because it’s virgin hair, Malaysian hair suffers very little shedding and is tangle free

You have a right to look beautiful in your weave, so don’t let anybody force a look or weave on you, just because they use it and it works for them. If you’ve made up your mind to go for a  Malaysian weave, think about what sort of look you want, and one that matches your personality and dress style.

Next, consider which type would help create that look – Malaysian curly hair, straight, kinky, or even wavy, for example.

Decide on a method of installation. We talked about this in our article on Peruvian hair. Once you’ve installed your Malaysian hair, concentrate on proper care and maintenance to ensure you get the longevity out of your weave that Malaysian virgin hair is known for.

When it comes to styling your Malaysian virgin hair, the sky is your limit. As far as you can imagine, you can create it. Stay inspired through the tons of resources on our hair talk blog right here at your fingertips.
