Throwback to 2018 and 2019 when Brazilian hair was the hot seller on the hair extensions market and number one on the wishlist of virtually every female.
The narrative changed towards the end of 2020 when a new kind of hair called ‘Bone straight’ broke out on social media and the hair sphere.
This new hair did not just appear towards the end of the COVID year, it came with its own jokes making it trend beyond limits.
I counsel men to bone any bone-straight hair girl that just consumes in a relationship, but never produces. You need prosumer women (women who consume as well as produce). May God make all #RenosNuggeteers experience wisdom in the #NewYear, in Christ’s Name. #RenosNuggets pic.twitter.com/W9FqFDredw

Bone straight is meant for the female folks but the male folks also felt it’s presence, because every female wants to have it and as a man, you’ll need to get it for your girl!
You must have heard a thousand and one things about this hair, so I’ll be giving you some essential key points on what bone straight is, it’s cost, types and how to care for it.
What is Bone straight?
Bone straight is a type of raw, straight and firm hair that is thin, sleek, scanty and well knotted from the weft to the bottom.
As the name implies, it is that straight, sleek hair for every classy woman giving you the attention you seek/deserve.
This hair is quite similar to natural straight hair because of the straightness they both share.
However, there are differences between them, below are the differences:
Bone straight requires little or no styling
Unlike natural straight hair, this hair requires very little or no styling making it a stress-free hair.
This kind of hair doesn’t tangle because the strands are free and firm. However, this feature has some little disadvantage. You can’t switch up looks/curl whenever you like with this type of hair. That only works with natural straight hair.
It is Very Flat
As we’ve identified earlier, this kind of hair is very flat and silky.
Doesn’t require 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.
Types of Bone straight
- Single Drawn: This one contains multiple lengths of hair mixed into the extensions resulting in hair that appears very thick at the top, tapers down at the middle while the ends are thin.
This type of hair is cheaper than the remaining types I’ll be mentioning subsequently.
- Double Drawn: This hair type is thick and full at the top, middle and bottom and more expensive than the single drawn hair.
- Super Double Drawn: This is the thickest hair amongst all they types of Bone straight, it contains approximately 85-90% amount of hair strands that are of the same length.
This type of hair gives you an illusion of your natural hair because of its density. This is the luxury bone straight hair and it is nicer than the remaining types which makes it the most expensive.
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 care for Bone straight
Caring for this kind of hair is less stressful as it is very easy to maintain. Bone straight is a stress-free kind of hair owing to its features listed above.
Avoid curling or switching up styles as they are not suitable for the hair.
Bone straight is an investment on its own, so handle with care!
Prices of Bone Straight 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.
Billionaire crooner, Teniola Apata popularly known as Teni the entertainer also bounced on the Bone Straight trend to celebrate her birthday a week ago.
