Everything you need to know about Xotica's Kinky Curly extensions

Posted on 05 October 2017

We all know finding kinky curly hair extensions online is not an easy feat.  I'm sure that we have all had the experience in the past, looking for natural hair extensions and realizing that it could be a hit or a miss, trying desperately to figure out if the model on the site’s texture and curl is like yours and wondering if the hair will match; or even wondering whether the model in the picture is actually wearing kinky extension from the actual store.  Ummm…..you know those vendors that steal images from other sites and claim that it’s their hair only to trick you into buying from them? Yup, I too have seen my face plastered on other vendors sites, claiming that my image and my Xotica Hair kinky curly extensions were true representation of their product that they offered; ummm….anywho, I’ll leave that for another discussion.  But yes, let’s get back on track, everything that you need to know about Xotica's kinky curly extensions and how to find the extension for your kinky, curly and coily hair. 

*For reference we will be using/referring to the Andre Walker’s Curl Typing System

 

Kinky Curly aka Kinky Curly Coily - 3B/3C

Everyone loves kinky curly.  Our kinky curly extensions are perfect for someone ranging between the curl patterns 3b and 3c. It offers voluminous curls with a small circumference. The circumference can range in size from a sharpie size to pencil size curls.  Our Kinky curly offers a smooth, silky feel with a medium lustre and shine.  This curl pattern is an elongated S pattern and is currently the loosest curl pattern that we offer and requires the least maintenance of any of our 4 Kinky textures.  To care for this hair, all you will need is a Denman style or weave brush for defining curls (if that’s your thing) as well as a spray bottle with water and your favourite conditioner to refresh your curls. You may experience a little bit of tangling at the nape of the neck which is common with any kinky curly textures, however nothing that a quick spritz and a pass through with a weave brush can't handle. 

 

Corkscrew Curls - 3C/4A

Our corkscrew curls have been all the rage ever since we introduced it. It's kind of a sweet spot in that the curl pattern overlaps slightly with the kinky curly coily as it is great for someone that falls in between curl types 3c and 4a or if you have a mixture of both curls on your head. The curl spirals are a pencil/straw sized or fine tightly coiled, corkscrew sized ringlets, they have a tight S curl pattern.  Our corkscrew curls offers medium to low lustre and again the care for this hair is relatively easy, while it falls within the kinky category it retains great curl definition with a Denman brush and product. 

 

Afro Kinky Curly - 4A/4B

These Afro Kinky curly extensions are our most popular extensions that we offer.  They are perfect for the kinkier textured girl that fall within the type 4 kinky range.  These extensions are springy and coily. They can offer a variety of looks including: defined kinky curly look, a kinky textured fro look, full fro (once brushed out) and offers such styling versatility including bantu knots, twist out, flat twist etc. Add a little or a lot to achieve your look.  This texture is a bit more maintenance than the other two previously mentioned textures simply because of the tightness of the curls and the fact that it processed under higher heat than the others. Patience and frequent detangling is a must!  This hair  likes moisture and does not like to be neglected and needs TLC.  

 

Afro Kinky Curly - 4B/4C 

Rivaling our 4a/4b extensions, the Afro Kinky 4B/4C is a definite contender in popularity.  Known for its thick, puffy, authentic looking goodness, this hair looks just like natural 4c texture hair. It is the kinkiest of all our textures. Perfect for 4c kinky curly girls.  The curls overlaps with 4b and 4c as it offers the zig zag Z pattern of 4b hair that is tightly coiled and can feel a bit wirey, yet when finger combed or brushed out it has the look of 4c hair that will almost never clump. These extensions are low lustre and are the highest in maintenance and much like the 4a/4b requires loads of TLC, if not more. Do not neglect this hair.This hair is processed under extremely high heat and the curls are much tighter than any of our other curls therefore patience with frequent detangling and moisturizing is a must.  You will experience tangling and matting if you neglect this hair.  Most customers swear by the authenticity of the look of this hair but admonishes about the maintenance.

All of Xotica Hair's extensions are made of 100% Remy human hair that has been processed with heat (steam processed) and comes in its natural donor colour). The hair can be flat ironed and the curls will revert; however, an excessive exposure to heat can adversely change and loosen the curls. Additionally, the hair can be coloured; however, like with any chemical service to curly hair, the hair's curl pattern can loosen.
