Malaysian hair can sometimes appear very shiny which does not last long. After the first few shampoos, the shine decreases and takes on a more natural appearance.
If you are a person that loves the shinier look and would like to keep that appearance, use a shampoo and conditioner that protects and holds shine. Deep wave or curly Malaysian hair will not loosen or drop its curl with time ( unless exccessive heat is used), curls will maintain their form during the entire install period if properly cared for.
Malaysian hair takes a little longer to straighten so it is best to straighten after a shampoo using a blow dryer with a denman brush then flat iron on medium-low temperature. If you are not going for a straight style after a wash, add leave in conditioner and allow your hair to air dry. It is not required to add hair products to Malaysian hair in order to maintain the curls, but I am a huge fan of leave in conditioner and curl forming products, it will always keep your curls looking hydrated.
Malaysian hair has a natural shine appearance so avoid heavy oils, this could cause the hair to be weighted down and cause the hair strains to slip from the wefts causing shedding.
Malaysian hair would be a great fit for a person with natural or texturized hair. If you like to wear your hair in its natural state, flat ironing your hair would allow natural blending with Malaysian hair. If you love volume and thickness, Malaysian hair is a great option.
House of Z Malaysian hair comes in its natural color and is 100% human virgin unprocessed hair. Malaysian hair requires fewer washes than Brazilian hair, but you will need to use a great leave-in conditioner ( used sparingly) at least 3 to 4 time per week if not shampooed weekly.
