Kinky Curly Hair Weave Aka Loose Afro Curl
Texture Guide

Kinky curly hair weave is a texture which is sometimes called loose Afro curl or sometimes Jheri curl (often spelled as as Jerry, sorry to all the Jerrys out there!).

The kinky curl texture has slightly larger and more visible curl pattern than a straight forward Afro (type 4B-C if you find the classification helpful) hair texture which is why it's also called, loose Afro curl.

Caring For Kinky Curly Hair Weave

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.

2.  Use a shampoo for chemically treated hair when you wash your weave hair and either deep condition or use a leave-in conditioner to repair and strengthen 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.
