Brazilian Hair Extensions

Updated on January 25, 2014

Do you have short hair, but are dreaming of long, wavy locks and don’t want to wait the years it will take to grow your hair out naturally?  Or are you worried that once you do, you’ll have dry, frizzy hair instead of the silky hair you covet? Brazilian hair extensions just may be the answer. 

Hairdressers use Brazilian hair extensions to give their clients’ own hair length and texture by adding locks of genuine, high quality hair. One great thing about extensions is that the procedure can be completed in the space of a single afternoon.

Where many use real hair extensions that are glued in with their own hair, some opt synthetic extensions that are clipped on. While the synthetic extensions are less costly and can be removed and reattached at will, the real hair extensions look much more realistic and convincing.

Brazilian hair extensions usually are created from hair that has never undergone perming, dyeing or other chemical treatments that can leave hair dry and damaged.  This is typically called virgin hair.  Because the hair has never been exposed to harsh chemicals, it is especially healthy and glossy, and does not need to be coated like some lower quality extensions do.

Great care is usually taken with these hair extensions, and they are hand washed in a gentle detergent. One unusual aspect of is that the extensions typically include the hair cuticle, and they are packaged with roots facing the same way so that the resulting appearance is more natural.

Brazilian hair extensions can be curled and styled just like your own hair, and should last for up to a year.

      Brazilian hair straightening treatments (also called Brazilian Keratin Treatment, BKT, Brazilian Blowout, Escova Progressiva, Keratin Cure or Keratin Straightening) are a method of temporarily straightening hair by sealing a liquid keratin and a preservative solution into the hair with a hair iron in the United States. It has been banned in several countries including Canada and the European Union due to high concentrations of regulated chemicals in them.
