Brazillian hair seems to be taking a back seat lately well we can attribute it to the pandemic which we all find ourselves in as there have a lot of events which have abruptly been cancelled or postponed until next year hence why few women haven’t had the opportunity to wear that gorgeous hair they have,
well on the flip side as we get into the holiday season and see this year wrap up for good, more and more women have seemed to find an alternative hair-style which seem to be gaining huge grounds globally and also on the continent. The history of bone straight hair can be traced back to Ancient Egypt as most of the Egyptian men and women had their hair shaved off partially or completely.

They initially created this wigs to prevent their shaved head from direct contact with the sun. Big and eccentric hairstyles were popularized by film and music stars, in particular amongst teenagers. Although straight hair was the norm at the beginning of the decade, as many late 1970s styles were still relevant, by around 1982 the perm had come into fashion.The evolution and crave for long hair began to gain momentum back in 2007, Speaking in terms of evolution, there are two reasons why straight hair would have been selected over the tight, curly hair that can be seen in Sub-Saharan human populations. The first is environmental selection, and the second is sexual selection, women claim that the longer the hair the sexier and powerful they had become and so their choice for long hair.

In recent times most Ghanaian celebrities have become a centre of ridicule as they claim that most of them are blindly jumping into having the most talked about hairstyle right about now and are getting it all wrong one of such celebrities is Nigerian-Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro who was accused of wearing a “Bone Zigzag hair” which she felt was the famous Bone straight hair whether or not she felt that way we wouldn’t be too sure, so we would like to know what this whole Bone straight hair is all about.

This 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 is as delectable as it looks. It is that sleek hair for every classy woman who is a lover of good things. With that being said there are three types of bone straight hair

The types of these hair are:

  1. Single Drawn: This one contains multiple lengths of hair mixed into the extensions. Thus, it results in hair that appears very thick at the top, tapers down at the middle while the ends are thin. Also, it is cheaper than the remaining types of bone straight hair.
  2. Double Drawn: This hair usually has the same length. That is, it is thick and full at the top middle and bottom. Furthermore, it is more expensive than a single drawn type.
  3. Super Double Drawn: This is the thickest hair. It contains approximately 85-90% amount of hair strands that are of the same length. When you wear a double drawn type of 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.


This hair is quite similar to naturally straight hair because of the straightness they both share. However, there are differences between them and that’s why this article is here to enlighten you about its features. This way, you don’t get confused or call any hair you see bone straight.

1. It Requires Little or No Styling

Unlike natural straight hair, this hair requires very little or no styling and this makes it a stress-free hair. That is, you spend less time brushing and combing. Furthermore, it doesn’t tangle at all because the strands are free and firm. However, this feature has some little disadvantage. You can’t switch up looks whenever you like with this type of hair. That only works with naturally straight hair.

2. It Cannot be Curled

You already read that in point one above. Perhaps, one day, you could get bored with the straightness of this hair and feel like adding some curls to it. That’s pretty nice, but just so you know, curls don’t work on this type of hair. It won’t even hold the curls at all. So, just damn the thought of curling it.

If you want a hair you can always curl anytime you feel like switching up looks, go for naturally straight hair. It’s perfect for curls and can even give you a deep wave. So we can say that Yvonne had the bone straight hair on just that she styled it up to her choice.


3. It is Very Flat

When you see this type of hair, how else do you recognise it apart from the fact that it’s straight?

Well, this hair is usually very flat and silky. It is scantier than naturally straight hair and doesn’t appear full compared to its natural counterpart.

4. Doesn’t Need Colouring

It isn’t advisable to colour bone straight hair. However, if you feel like you need to change its colour, note that it cannot be tinted to a bright blonde colour.
