This is my first time ever having a sew in. I must say I absolutely love this hair. I purchased it from Super Beauty World in Fayetteville, NC. It was expensive, but I didn't want any cheap looking hair, and I must say I love the decision I made. You get what you pay for. I have gotten a ton of compliments. It doesn't hold curls long, but once in the flat straight stage, it is still flawless. You can't go wrong with it. Outre made the brand I have, not sure if that makes a difference or not.
