Peruvian Hair V. Brazilian Hair: Which Is Better? by runsbabe(f): 11:44pm On May 20, 2012
Recently, I put up this topic on my blog:
So today around five in the evening, I am on my bed, trying to read a novel I found on Patricia's reading table. It is one of those suspense novels and I am finding it quite interesting.There is a knock on the door. I am practically the only one in the room. Evelyn had left to visit her boyfriend in one of the male student halls some two hours ago.

"Who is it?" I ask, dropping the novel I am reading and walking towards the door.

"It is me." An unknown voice says at the other end of the door. I think this answer is silly, but I open the door anyway. A very pretty young woman was standing at the door with a big plastic bag that said "Debenhams"

"Hi." I greet, looking at the bag she is holding in interest. I know she is one of those women who bring things to sell in the hostel but she is dressed so stylishly and can pass for a student. Her silky wavy hair falls across her face even as she tries to flick it back every now and then. Of course, the hair is not her hair. Not even a half caste woman would spot something so silky. She is dressed smartly in blue jeans trouser and red wrap around shirt.

"Hello," She greets, looking past me into the room. "I am selling nice weavon." She bats her lashes at me as if I am a man. This feels weird, but I open the door to let her in anyway. I could do for some company.

"You are alone." She notes with disappointment on her face. I smile at her.

"Yes, I am alone."

She introduces herself as Ann, I tell her that it is nice to meet her. She opens the bag and pulls out several plastic bags. She says she is selling Peruvian and Brazilian weavon. I am interested. The ultimatum Esther gave me will soon expire. Two weeks ago, she expressed her concern about my hair full of darling Yaki hair extension. Cheap, she had said, turning her nose scornfully. If you don't buy Brazilian hair in two weeks, I will not take you to the big party I told you about.


So, here I am thinking this woman couldn't have chosen a more opportune moment to visit my room. There is no way I want to miss the party Esther is talking about. According to her, girls collect as much as one hundred thousand for just attending such parties. She said, it is a governor's party. So I must prepare. I collect the wraps of plastic from the seller and open them. She collects them back with a smile and tells me not to mix them.

"Some are Peruvian," She says, separating the plastic wraps and lining them on my bed where we sat. "Some are Brazilian."

Soon I am opening the plastic bags and pulling out unbelievably soft hair. I bunch the hair in my hand. I think is too small. I tell her this. She smiles at me and tells me that this is normal as the hair is light. I ask what type of weavon I am holding and she says it is Peruvian and so I take note. I move to the other bags and repeat the exercise. Now these ones are Brazilian. I can't tell any difference between the two types of weaves. Just as I am wondering about this, Evelyn walks into the room. She greets Ann the weavon seller and immediately pounces on the weaves lying on my bed.

"I think Peruvian is better than Brazilian." She says almost immediately, throwing down the weave in her hand and picking up another. Now that is my room mate for you. Tact is not something she understands. I smile at the seller in embarrassment. She looks at Evelyn's head and seems to appreciate her hair style. Well, Evelyn does know a thing or two about these weaves. In fact she has one on her head. "I wear Peruvian." She confirms, running her hand down her hair.

The seller seems interested in what Evelyn has to say. "Why do you say so?"

"Brazilian is too silky," Evelyn tells her with flourish. "Looks too fake and then dries out more than Peruvian or Indian weaves."

I look on, getting interested.

"Peruvian weave on is more natural and fits black people better."

The seller doesn't agree. So a Brazilian - Peruvian war starts millions of miles away from the countries concerned. Evelyn and the seller argue for twenty minutes. Evelyn is Peruvian and Ann the weave on seller is Brazilian. When I get tired of the arguing, I tap Ann the weave on seller and ask her..

"How much is your Peruvian weave on?"

"Twenty five thousand." She declares with a solemn look, almost as if the words are too heavy to pronounce. Twenty five thousand Naira? I think to myself in horror. I manage to slip out of the room with an excuse of visiting the toilet. Evelyn and Ann are too busy to pay me any attention. I don't go back to the room till an hour later. Emmm....I know what you are thinking. Yes,, Peruvian weave on is expensive for me. I will stick with Darling Yaki for now. Maybe after the governors' party. Who knows. Time to leave the cafe now. See you tomorrow.

So dear NLanders, what do you think? Is Brazilian hair better than Peruvian hair? I know I ran away from the seller when I heard the price but I am seriously considering getting any of the two. Please help. I look forward to your responses.

Something I've notice about girls, don't ever let them get bore, that's where bad boys carry first.
In this situation , if your products stay too long , it become too common and bore,
Solution: repackage it, give it a new name and make it more expensive after all no be their money dem dey take buy [ at least most of them]
What's the difference between brazilian and peruvian , the cost
What's the difference between BB4 or 5 and porche , the cost,
Obviously their Fishbrain can't see that the inside is the same , as long as they are not using what others are using

Your God given hair. Get a perm or flat iron it or wear it natural if you want. smiley grin

i honestly dont know how we got to the point where we spend such huge amounts of money on inconsequential things. What happened to buying 500 naira attachment and braiding your hair or doing ghana weaving. Are there no more affordable weave-on that can achieve the same result that you get with Brazilian hair or peruvian hair? I have seen some babes wear these so called expensive hair and it does not look nice or expensive at all. I really do not know much about these hair cos i dont fix weave-on's. I would rather braid my hair or do some nice ghana weaving, and that does not break the bank in any way and i still look awesome.

Low maintenance is a virtue...lol...

Re: Peruvian Hair V. Brazilian Hair: Which Is Better? by Lucid1(m): 2:54am On May 21, 2012
Personally, I consider weave-on too elaborate whether Brazilian or Somalian and detest them all.. If you want your hair to look sleek relax it wella then you can style and dye to your taste rather than carrying over-sized hair. That shiitt makes girls' heads look BIG. Girls una dey vess me ehn angry angry angry but how we go do na? grin grin grin

@OP, do you want to know the truth? Both the brazilian and peruvian are both chinese hair processed for texture. Some suppliers might use indian hair to get any of the said origins. That's is the reason why you could not tell the difference. One supplier's peruvian hair might be silkier than the brazilian, while another supplier's would be different.
All 'em malaysian, mongolian, peruvian, brazilian etc are either indian or chinese hair. These are the only people that donate or sell their hair for money. India- donate, China-sell, with the exception of russians and some borders of asia where caucasian like hair is gotten which is rare.
But then again most africans prefer chinese hair because its most close to our hair texture. Indian is very silky and shiny even without any products on it which doesnt blend well most of the time but its oh so beautiful. Indian/chinese hair can be made to mimic the above origins. It's either they are processed to mimic the above origins or the hairs are sorted out according to their textures i.e how they look and feel i.e silky, coarse, thin, thick, shiny etc and given the names like malaysian, peruvian etc.
This all i can say for now, i'm tired of typing.

Absolute crap! Do guys care or distinguish between Brazilian, Peruvian or Indian hairs before asking you out? I don't think so! Dunno what's the craze with these hair thing. By the time una don wear all the hairs or weave-on of all the oyinbos, una eyes go clear. Peruvian hair ko, Somalian hair ni. Very soon una go start to dey buy pub[i][/i]c hairs too. Na only naija women dey craze for European and Asian hairs. Have you heard them tryna buy African or Nigerian hair?

N.B Mods, kindly yank this thread off the front page. Thanks.
