Having purchased this hair more than once in multiple textures I find it lifts very well with no breakage so if you’re looking to color don’t be weary as IT HARDLY SHEDS, and I don’t mean lightly. I’ve been wearing the unit I made for about 4 weeks now, it functions great as my easy throw on everyday piece, I washed it three times to rid it or product build-up and have lost practically no hair. I always let it air dry over night and the natural hair texture retention is unparalleled.
As I made a unit I cannot attest for constant wear with a sew-in but this hair is pretty hard to tangle and as for dryness, there is next to none.
Now with any hair, it’s never suggested to cut the weft, the only shedding I experienced with this hair was the curly Brazilian variety I got and I’m sure it was due to cutting the weft and not fully re-sealing it. Still it was minimal to none.
This hair makes a gorgeous curl, and like any hair, natural or weaved, if it’s not caked up with product the hold should be no problem. I curl it dry with a heat protectant and little gel. I also let my curls sit to better retain definition.
