My Natural Hair Extensions

Kinky Straight Hair

Kinky straight hair is also referred to as perm yaki hair or as a kinky straight weave, which are natural and synthetic hair extensions for people with curly and coily hair who want to achieve a natural flowy, slightly curly look. Perm yaki extensions are great for achieving the Afro-Caribbean hair that Beyoncé sported in her Lemonade era, or Rihanna has rocked since the beginning of her career.

Most kinky straight hair extensions need the same level of care as your natural hair. They need to be cleaned, moisturized, and combed to blend with your natural hair. Unlike your natural hair, however, they seldom need detangling and will retain a thick texture even if you sometimes overlook including them in your conditioning routine.

How To Maintain Kinky Straight Hair

Whether your kinky straight hair is natural or due to hair extensions, knowing how to take care of it is essential to prevent it from drying out and becoming brittle. The two rules of caring for curly and coily hair also apply to kinky straight hair: Moisturize, and then style carefully.

If you were born with straight hair and you got kinky straight hair after using hot curlers in your tresses, moisturize it by applying water-based leave-in conditioners and sealing in the moisture with heavy oils, like avocado and almond oil.

If you have long 3B to 3C hair or type 4 hair, and you achieved kinky straight hair with the use of straightening products, you must keep it away from humidity, especially in the summer. The vapor in the air will cause your coils to come back. Tie up your hair in a bun when going out in the sun, and moisturize it during the colder seasons.

For kinky straight hair extensions, apply the same moisturizing products you apply to your natural hair, and avoid washing it every day. If you are using Remy hair extensions, washing them more than once a week can cause them to become dry and brittle. Follow the same standard of care you employ with your natural hair, or your extensions might start to look different from the rest of the hair on your head.
