where does yaki hair come from

Let’s answer your question where does yaki hair come from?

The hair actually comes from the animal called a YAK.

If you have seen the documentary “GOOD HAIR” then you know the marketplace is controlled by Asians which means Yaki more than likely comes from Asia.

The term “YAKI” came about due to the processing of the hair to resemble black people’s hair in many forms. Below is a quick break down.

There are four types of Yaki hair so when you go buy make sure you read the package.

– Silky: Straight
– Kinky: African American (Un-Relaxed or Pressed Straight)
– Coarse – African American (More Natural – No Chemical Process)
– Regular – African American Look (Straight, Relaxed)
