What is Malaysian Hair?

Malaysian hair comes from South East Asia and is considered one of the best types of human hair extensions, and a must have priority among celebs.  Clients love Malaysian weave because of the texture:  Malaysian weave typically comes with a silky and lustrous look.  Malaysian hair is popular with the people who want to buy soft and shiny hair extensions. It comes in different styles to satisfy different demands, but the most popular ones are straight, body wave and kinky curl. Different from other hair, Malaysian weaves will typically not curl when wet. After shampooing, the hair may have a slight wave, but its texture will remain straight with lots of body and bounce. With it's sleek luxurious texture and just the right amount of shine, Malaysian hair is known to blend very well with most hair types.

Reasons to Pick Malaysian Hair Extensions

Why choose Malaysian hair extensions as opposed to the other hair extensions in the market? When choosing between Malaysian hair extensions and Indian, Brazilian or Peruvian hair, the most important thing to consider is whether the hair is virgin human hair or not. As long as the hair is virgin human hair (e.g. the type that Volure offers), and you like the feel of it, you are good to go.  With our quality Malaysian weave, you are sure to take advantage of these benefits: striking shine, long lifespan, natural lustre, great softness and no tangling.  Malaysian hair extensions are very durable. You can reuse this hair many times over and the hair will still have its soft, smooth, full texture.

In terms of Malaysian hair prices, please note that all Volure weaves are currently priced the same.  So our Malaysian hair prices are the same as those of our Brazilian, Peruvian and Indian weaves.  Please note that prices depend only on length and the number of bundles you need.  Our Malaysian hair prices range from about R1,000 to about R1,800. 

Hair Pieces Made of Malaysian Hair

Aside from weaves, there are other types of Malaysian hair pieces.  Malaysian lace closures are used together with a Malaysian weave to completely cover the wearer's natural hair.  Lace closures give you the benefit of not relaxing your natural hair or exposing it to the elements.  With Malaysian lace closures your entire hair is protected and allowed to grow peacefully.  

Another Malaysian hair piece - the ever popular Malaysian lace wigs - are the go to solution when you are tired of weaves.  Our Malaysian lace wigs use our top quality virgin hair, which means that the wig will last long and keep looking great the entire time.  With Malaysian lace wigs, the choices are endless. From Malaysian wigs with a front lace to Malaysian wigs with a full lace, the client has many options. Our Malaysian wigs can be straight, long, short, or curly. We advise our clients to try our front lace Malaysian lace wigs as they tend to be more durable and are easier to handle if you are new to wearing and maintaining lace wigs. 

Other Malaysian hair pieces are possible - speak to our staff if you want a Malaysian lace frontal closure, clip in extensions or any other Malaysian hair piece and we'll do our best to accommodate you. 

Installing and Styling Malaysian Human Hair

Installing Malaysian human hair is very simple. The bundles required depend on the hair length and volume that you want. I like voluminous long hair and I use roughly the following amounts of bundles:

10 to 14 inches – 2-3 bundle of Malaysian human hair

16 to 22 Inches – 3 bundles of Malaysian human hair

24 to 30 Inches – 4 bundles of Malaysian human hair

When installing your Malaysian weave do not cut the Malaysian weave tracks. Cutting the tracks can result in shedding due to loose ends. Do not weave through the tracks. Instead, weave around them. Weaving through can detach some of the hairs and cause shedding with time.

Because virgin Malaysian hair is natural and healthy, you can style your hair with hot iron tools.  There are many Malaysian weave hairstyles that are possible.  With straight hair, you can curl the hair and straighten it.  With body wave Malaysian weaves, you can curl the hair especially to bring back fading waves, but we advise that you DO NOT straighten it as this may cause frizzing.  Kinky curl Malaysian weaves are best styled by simply using water and curl activators/definers, and not through hot iron tools. Usually this is enough to keep your kinky curls looking brand new and lively. 

Caring for Malaysian Weaves

Remember to provide proper care to your Malaysian locks.  Like all hair extensions, Malaysian weaves require good care if you want them to last and to keep their beautiful look. Because the hair is natural, treat it as such. Always remember to use a good conditioning treatment. Be sure to moisturize, moisturize and moisturize. Perform a co-wash once a week.  Air-drying is highly recommended after washing and conditioning the hair.  After your Malaysian weave is mid-dry, apply a leave in moisturizer or conditioner.  Use alcohol free products on the hair. Alcohol free products do not dry out the hair or make it frizzy - products with alcohol will! Do not apply any heavy oils onto your hair! The oils will likely tangle up the hair making difficult to manage and restrict movement of the Malaysian weave.
