The Pros of this kind of extensions are that it lasts long and blends well with relaxed African (American) hair. It is also very lightweight.The cons are that it is can be very pricey (often overpriced), Remember price and quality are not necessarily proportional. The more expensive the hair is doesn't necessarily mean it is better quality!!
Everything is best in moderation.. But I know some friends in the UK who install 6 bundles of hair that is 600g (24oz) of hair...(how do they manage to fit all that hair on their head?!?!). Don't feel pressured to purchase that much hair. 3 bundles is good enough and creates natural fullness if you want to use more, feel free to. I personally wouldn't use more than 3-4 bundles.Another pet peeve is seeing women with extra long lengths e.g. past their belly button... it looks unnatural in my opinion. But to each its own.
Care is important. If you do not take care of your hair extensions they will end up looking ratty and dry.Mine got better with every wash & condition!!
Specs of my Virgin Brazilian Wavy Hair:
- I used 3 bundles : 14, 16 and 20 inches
- Each bundles is 100g so I used 300g of hair
- The hair came in Natural Brown Color
- No tangling or shedding ( I would get 1-3 strands per week so the shedding is pretty much non-existent) I sealed my wefts so that prevented shedding.
- The waves came back after every wash or co-wash
- The less product you use on the hair the more manageable it is, I use Argan Oil for daily maintenance

So what is your opinion on Brazilian Hair?? How much hair do you think is too much hair? What lengths if any are no nos?
Also if you have any questions about the hair, feel free to ask :)
