Five things you should know about hair in Cambodia

Cambodian hair is famous for five aspects, namely healthy cuticles, less gray hair, natural color, typical smell, and easy styling.
- Natural hair color
On the contrary to Vietnamese hair in jet black, the hair in Cambodia tends to be mildly black. To your surprise, it is a real natural color without undergoing any chemical processes. You may hear some gurus call this color as 1b or off black. If it is in a softer black, the name will be color 2.
- Healthy and strong cuticles
Technically, as Healthline states, a hair cuticle is a protective layer composed of dead and overlapping cells. Should it be healthy, it will add more shine and help protect the inner layers from possible damages. ((Healthline. 2020. Cuticle: What Is It, Care, Removal, Signs Of Infection, And More. [online] Available at: <https://www.healthline.com/health/cuticle> [Accessed 7 June 2020].))
Cambodian hair is human hair collected from donors. Therefore, the cuticles are likely to be intact and laid in the same direction. In other words, they are healthy and excellent to buy a bundle.
- Typical smell
This will help you distinguish between raw/virgin hair and mixed/synthetic hair. If you smell a clean natural smell as your strands, it is fresh/virgin hair no matter where it is from. Remember to check it when you receive the order.
- Less gray hair
According to the Library of Congress, chemical exposure is listed as an extrinsic factor of gray hair. Fortunately, as a tradition of most Asian women, they give their hair special treatment with no chemical product. This creates healthy locks and reduces grey hair.
- Easy styling
Cambodian hair is the stylist’s hair dream because it works well when it comes to coloring and bleaching. You can achieve your desired hair color if your bundle of Cambodian hair from Cambodia is done by a professional.
These are the benefits of hair in Cambodia that you may take into consideration, but we are pretty sure that you will love it at first sight. Now, move on to the next section to see if it can compete against other aged hair origins. Comparison is what makes an overall picture of the market clearer.
Cambodian hair vs. Brazilian hair and Indian hair – a battle between two generations
Why do we call it a battle between two generations? As you all know, we started the era of hair extensions with Indian and Brazilian hair. After a few decades, hair vendors began to explore the potential market in Asia, and Cambodian hair emerged as a rising star, which is favored by many dark-colored women.
- Brazilian hair
When compared to Cambodian hair, Brazilian strands are bound to be soft and thick with lots of body locks. Hence, it is an excellent choice for those with thinner heads. Naturally, this hair type mainly comes in body waves, natural waves, and deep curls.
Among three hair origins, we can say that it is the most durable to hold curls and the most resistant to frizz. Note that you should choose it when you hunt for tight curls or deep and voluminous waves.
- Indian hair
We would say that if you want to know more about Vietnamese hair vs. the other two, please click here (dẫn link bài Vietnamese hair).
Indian hair is a friend of every woman in the world. It is versatile in the market, easy to find and affordable to get. It offers you a variety of options from straight to kinky to wavy. However, there are some minus points that you need to take notice of.
First, as it is cheap and accessible, there are hundreds of mixed hair and synthetic hair that are made to fool customers. You should be careful when buying.
Second, Indian hair seems to swell and turn dizzy in hot and humid weather. To use it for a long time, you should use an anti-frizz product and pay more attention to your hair care routine.
As we have mentioned above, Cambodian hair is quite similar to Indian hair in such aspects as versatility, light texture, and variety. The final result for these two is 1-1.
- Cambodian hair
It is likely to be much coarser in texture than its opponents. Plus, it is perfect for blending with relaxed African American strands. Hence, it arguably becomes a rising star in the market and ranks high on the list. It has lots of body and bounce, but the amount satisfies almost all customers.
One more strength is its low maintenance option. You do not need to pay more for a good look while you can keep it for 1-2 years. So, why not?
In conclusion, when compared to seniors in the market, it is competitive enough. It deserves your attention and interest, we must say.

#1. I just don’t know why it has a considerable appeal to me. How can I say? Hmm, it is more abundant in textures than I think. It ranges from straight, wavy to curly, from smooth to coarse and thick.
#2. Now I know why my friends keep talking about it. My preference a year ago was Peruvian. It was delicious, but my friends tried Cambodian, and they talked about it so much that I decided to try. They are the same. I mean, they are all good, and the maintenance process is not much different. I enjoyed them all. I must say!

I want to find an okay supplier who can support me with stuff and give me some advice also because I don’t know much about hair extensions. Please share it with me!
