Brazilian hair is arguably the most sought-after hair on the market. Typically, Brazilian hair is collected from donors in the South American region. Most of the donors come from small, rural places within Brazil, where the donors are paid for growing and then donating strong, healthy hair. There are certainly many benefits that Brazilian hair extensions offer that some other types of extensions might not.
There are numerous grades of Brazilian hair, and the major features of each grade are determined by the region the hair is obtained from, as well as the genetics of the donor. Brazilians are genetically diverse, and are among European, Indian and African heritages.
1. Grade A Brazilian Hair
Grade A Brazilian hair is considered the highest grade and is obtained from Brazilians who are mostly of Anglo or European descent. This type of hair has the silkiest texture, is naturally straight, and is ideal for creating lace front wigs. Consequently, it is usually the most expensive type of Brazilian hair found on the market.
2. Grade B Brazilian Hair
Grade B Brazilian hair is typically the grade of Brazilian hair that is used to create a wavy hair extension. It is perhaps the most popular grade of Brazilian hair seen on the market. It's thicker than grade A, and it has a slight wave to it that is coveted by customers. It is usually resistant to sunlight and comes in a variety of colors ranging from light copper to dark brown. This type of hair is usually obtained from Brazilians of Indian descent.
3. Grade C Brazilian Hair
Grade C Brazilian hair is the hair that is obtained from Brazilians of African and Caribbean descent. This grade of Brazilian hair is usually curly, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "Muttalo" or "Molado" hair. This hair is usually thicker and coarser because of its curls and comes in colors from light brown to brown. Additionally, it comes in different curl styles, too, from tight curls to looser body waves.
All grades of Brazilian hair, such as those used for extensions by CEXXY Hair Company, are ideal if you're looking for thick, bouncy hair. The hair also holds style well and blends very well with most ethnic hair types. Offered as a straight, curly or wavy hair extension, Brazilian hair is versatile enough to accommodate all customers.
