What Is Yaki Hair Texture?

Yaki hair texture is the result of a treatment where silky hair is processed with a micro kink texture in order to mimic African-American hair. It is the best choice of hair texture to choose if you are looking for a style that resembles natural afro hair.

Silk vs Yaki Hair Texture 

Yaki textures look just like African-American hair that has been freshly treated with a salon relaxer. Unlike its hair texture cousin kinky straight, yaki texture is sleek and straight, allowing it to moves and flow freely. 

Hair Styling Options

This type of hair dries straight and does not wave, you can choose to flat iron it for a sleek look, but it is not necessary. For more versatility, you can roller set the hair, when wet, for a beautiful curly or wavy look.
