Hair weaves also come in the kinky curl texture which is sometimes called loose Afro curl.
The kinky curl texture has slightly larger and therefore more defined curl pattern than a straight forward Afro (type 4b) hair texture which is why it's also called, loose Afro curl.
The kinky curl is a great option for those who want a hair texture in the Afro spectrum.
It's not just those with Afro hair who have very curly hair textures there are people all over the world with small curl pattern hair textures.
This all goes to say that whether you have curly hair (where the curls are quite small) or if you simply like small curls, then you can rock kinky curls too.
Just because the hair texture is curly, doesn't mean you can't get long lengths!
If you’ve read any of our other articles on weave hair textures, then you’ll be well versed in the lengths available, but if you haven't, read on.
Kinky curly weave hair is widely available in lengths ranging from 8-28 inches.
Longer lengths are available you might have to take on the role of seeker as those longer lengths do like to hide... but don't give up, you'll eventually win and find them.
When choosing the length of kinky curly weave hair, remember that the length quoted (for curly and wavy hair) is the length the hair measures when straightened (stretched) - there's a measurement guide that explains this.
Kinky curly weave hair comes as solo bundles as well as multiple bundles of different lengths.
Hmm... Just why might you want weaves of different lengths? This makes a difference if you're aiming to have one overall weave hair length or layers and you can see the value of multiple length sets in the guide about making a wig from weave hair.
Bundles are available as sets of two, three or four different lengths like 14 inch, 16 inch, 18 inch & 20 inch.
The most prevalent colours are darker from black to medium browns but don't worry, there are other colours available like 27, 30, 33, 99j, 613 (coppers, burgundy and strawberry blondes) as well as red, ombre, green, tricolours, blues, highlights, grey, dip-dye, pastels, T-colours purples to name but a few.

You can peruse Peruke’s Caring for Weave Hair Guide for an overview of daily styling, combs and brushes for weave hair and use the following five top tips to get started.
1. As the hair has been chemically treated to achieve texture, it's better limit the use of heat straighteners as frequent use can sometimes damage the wave pattern and the hair.
3. Smooth dry hair by applying nourishing hair oil to damp hair.
4. Moisturise regularly with a mineral oil free moisturizer to keep the hair hydrated and prevent it from becoming dry.
5. If you have glue-in weave hair then it's best to use a dry shampoo and avoid getting any hair extension products anywhere near the glued tracks as it can cause the glue to disintegrate and possibly mat with your growth hair.
That's the whole kit and caboodle for kinky curly weave hair.
