I have actually just reinstalled this hair for second time using the braid less sewn in method. I ordered this hair in July, 4 bundles where purchased but I only used 3. Anyway, after each wash hair looked completely new and fresh. I am not a hair stylist nor do I know how to do hair, this hair was easy to maintain in between hair appointments. I really wore it straight the whole time. will definitely be ordering more bundles just to have on hand.
