About a month ago (as of the time of writing this piece,) a new fad broke out on social media, particularly in the hair industry. This fad didn’t just come with its name alone. It came with jokes that made it trend beyond limits. You guessed right. That fad is bone straight hair.
I remember seeing a joke on Twitter where a guy said something like, “…As she look me, I bone straight.” That’s just one of the numerous jokes and puns this hair received upon trending in Nigeria.
If you’ve heard so much about this hair but keep wondering what it is and why it was the talk of the town, wonder no more. That’s the essence of this article you’re reading. So, don’t leave this page just yet. Stick around as we show you all you need to know about the weave called “bone straight“.
What is Bone Straight Hair?
Bone straight is a type of straight hair that is thin, sleek, and scanty. This type of hair is raw and its strands are firm and well-knotted from the weft to the bottom. Furthermore, it’s as delectable as it looks. It’s that sleek hair for every classy woman who is a lover of good things.
Features of Bone Straight Hair
If you’re looking for human hair weaves that won’t give you any iota of stress, bone straight is the hair to go for. If you’re looking for the hair to give you the attention you seek, this is it. If you’re searching for the right hair to make a fashion statement, search no further. Just go for this hair.
This weave is quite similar to natural straight hair because of the straightness they both share. However, there are differences between them. And this piece will enlighten you about its features so you don’t get confused or call any hair you see bone straight.
Here they are:
1. It Requires Little or No Styling
Unlike natural straight hair, this hair requires very little or no styling. This makes it stress-free as you won’t have to spend much time brushing and combing. In addition, it doesn’t tangle because the strands are free and firm.
However, this no-styling feature has some disadvantages. For one, you can’t switch up your look when wearing this hair. That only works with natural straight hair.
2. You can’t Add Curls or Waves
When you get bored of your straight hair, you switch up styles and curl it, right? That’s nice. But as you read in #1, curls or waves don’t work on this type of hair. The curls won’t even stay.
If you want weaves you can always curl anytime you feel like switching up looks, go for natural straight hair. It’s perfect for curls and can even give you a deep wave.
3. It’s Flat
An easy way to recognize this hair is its straightness. But that isn’t all. Bone straight hair is also flat and silky. It’s scantier than natural straight hair and doesn’t appear full compared to its natural counterpart.
4. It Doesn’t Need Coloring
It isn’t advisable to color this hair. But if you feel like you need to change its color, note that it can’t be tinted to a bright blonde color.
Types of Bone Straight Hair
The types of this hair are:
This one contains multiple lengths of hair mixed into the extensions. The result is hair that appears very thick at the top and tapers down at the middle while the ends are thin. In addition, it’s cheaper than other types of bone straight hair.
This type usually has the same length. It’s thick and dense at the top, middle, and bottom. Also, it’s more expensive than single drawn.
Super Double Drawn (SDD)
This is the thickest hair. It contains approximately 85-90% amount of hair strands that are of the same length. When you wear super double-drawn hair, it gives you an illusion of your natural hair because of its density. This hair is the luxury bone straight hair and it is nicer than the remaining types. This makes it the most expensive.
Moreover, the inches/lengths of single-drawn, double-drawn, and super double-drawn range from 10 to 30 while their grams range from 200 grams to 300 grams.
How to Take Care of Your Bone Straight Hair
Bone straight hair is easy to maintain. Since it doesn’t require much styling, you won’t have to curl or make it wavy. Just use a straightener whenever you wanna make it smoother and you’ll be good to go.
But you should also remember to wash and revamp your bone straight weave especially when you’ve worn them for months.
Prices of Bone Straight Hair in Nigeria
The prices of this type of hair in Nigeria range from N60,000 to N300,000 and above, depending on the type, length, and gram you want. But here’s a price list you can work with as a budget:
- 10 inches SDD— N95,000
- 10 inches DD— N85,00
- 12 inches — N100,000
- 28 inches — N230,000
Where to Buy Bone Straight Hair
You can buy this weave from any reputable hair vendor on Instagram. You can also buy from reputable e-commerce sites like Jumia, XRS Beauty Hair, Amazon, etc.
This hair is available everywhere but you must be careful when buying lest you should buy natural straight hair thinking it’s bone straight. Besides, scammers also abound. It’s why I reiterated the word “reputable” above.
In conclusion, bone straight hair isn’t just another hair fad. It’s an investment on its own, that can elevate your outfit and reputation. But if you choose not to rock it, feel free to go for any other human hair that suits your pocket. Just be sure to maintain it well by following the tips on how to take care of human hair weaves and you are good to go.
