About Body Wave Peruvian Hair
Peruvian Hair Body Wave pieces give a bouncy, vibrant and thick hair look. Like other Peruvian Hair textures, our Body Wave Peruvian Hair is also thick and durable, making it the ultimate multi-purpose hair. This hair is coarser in texture than Indian or Brazilian Hair and provides instant volume. Because of the Body Wave style this look will take work to maintain as compared to straighter textures. However, through proper washing, use of curl definers, and other tips and tricks this look will make you the envy of all! Key product features:
Bundle size: Prices for our Peruvian Hair Body Wave pieces are for 1 bundle. Each comes in at approximately 100g and you need around 3 bundles for a nice full look.
Hair Quality: Our Peruvian Hair Body Wave pieces use the highest quality Virgin Remy hair available. To achieve the Body Wave style, this virgin hair must be lightly processed, so while the end-product is not virgin in the strictest sense, it comes from the best hair anyone can get. It is worth noting that deeper and curlier waves require more processing. All our weaves, whether 100% virgin or lightly processed into wavy styles or lighter colours, are truly Remy. This means that hair cuticles are intact and aligned in the same direction, providing a nice clean and healthy sheen.
Bleaching, Washing and Styling: Because our Body Wave Peruvian Hair is healthy, natural and has undergone minimal if any processing, it can be bleached, blow dried and curled just like your own natural hair. While the hair can also be straightened, to maximise the life of your weave, we recommend against this and advise that you instead buy a straighter set of weaves.
Installing & Styling Peruvian Body Wave Hair
Bundles Required: You need approximately 3 bundles of our Peruvian Body Wave Hair for a full look. The longer the hair length, the more bundles you will need for a full look:
10 to 14 inches – 2 bundles
16 to 22 inches – 3 bundles
24 to 30 inches – 4 bundles
Installation Tips: We suggest that you follow the below tips to make sure that your Peruvian Hair is installed properly:
Do not cut the weave tracks: Instead, keep each weave track whole and install by wrapping around your head. Cutting the tracks creates loose ends, which leads to shedding.
Do not weave through the tracks: Instead, weave around the tracks. Weaving through the tracks destabilises the stitching, which can also leads to shedding over time.
Styling Your Peruvian Hair Body Wave: Our Body Wave Peruvian Hair have been textured into its wavy texture. While you can straighten the hair, it is meant to be kept in its wavy form. Over time the Body Wave style may become looser and closer to a Natural Wave look. If you want the hair to go back to its original Body Wave form, simply curl the hair using a curling iron and/or bendy rollers.
How to Care for Body Wave Peruvian Hair
Below is a quick summary of how to care for your Body Wave Peruvian Hair.
How Long Will My Wave Last? Your Peruvian Hair will last you for 1 year (potentially 2 years), depending on how well you take care of it. Our clients typically have their weaves re-applied after 1-2 months to maintain a neat and new look as their own natural hair grows.
Bleaching and Dyeing: Due to its high quality, you can bleach and dye your weave into practically any colour. HOWEVER we caution our clients to either come to us or go to a professional stylist in order to bleach or dye the hair properly. Bleaching dries out the hair, unwinds curls and if the bleach is too strong, you can damage your weave permanently.
Washing Body Wave Hair: When washing your hair, make sure to first brush it thoroughly with a paddle brush to ensure that strands are free-flowing. This will unwind the waves somewhat, but you will be able to bring them back using a curling iron or bendy rollers. Make sure you use a pre-conditioning treatment before shampooing in order to reduce drying of the hair.
Brushing Body Wave Styles: With Body Wave textures you have a decision to make between using a paddle brush or a finger comb on your hair. While a finger comb will do a better job of maintaining the body wave style, you can use a paddle brush on your body wave styles. While this will straighten out the hair to a natural wave style, remember that you can always bring the curls back with either bendy rollers or any curling iron. As with other styles, when brushing or finger combing your Body Wave Peruvian Hair, always start from the tips of the hair, gently working your way up towards the roots. Please do not comb body wave styles with a fine tooth comb.
Caring for Body Wave Hair at Night: When going to sleep, tie your Peruvian Hair Body Wave into Bantu knots and cover it with a satin cap.
