I ordered this hair as a last minute in desperate need of bundles RIGHT AWAY type of purchase and let me tell you I am so happy I did. My stylist colored and installed the bundles on 12/23 and the hair is still soft with minimum shedding and tangling. I usually pin curl it and place my bonnet on at night or I use a curling iron to add spiral curls and there’s no burning smells or heat damage. It would be wise to use heat protector (small amounts). I love this hair and with the way it’s holdingup....I’ll be able to take it out and reinstall again. I have to credit an excellent stylist as well for taking Great care of it.
