There are many factors to consider before getting a weave, including, the ease of installation, maintenance, length, color, and texture of the hair. 

Brazilian Hair is one of the most popular and best textures for African American women. The hair is typically soft, relatively thick and very durable. Brazilian hair also handles color extremely well. 

Peruvian Hair is sought after quite a bit because of its multi-purpose texture. Peruvian hair is often thick, straight, or wavy in nature.   In comparison, Peruvian hair has a texture that is coarser and slightly silkier than Brazilian hair.

Malaysian Hair is very soft. It blends best with relaxed textures and those with very fine, silky hair. It’s extremely manageable and has luster and shine of its own.  Like Brazilian hair it also handles color very well.
