Before I got this hair, I spent years finding cheap and quality hair and getting my hair redone every other month or so. I had this hair sewn in in October 2013 and here in Oct 2014 . Honestly the hair is still holding up fine, its just that my hair has grown out so much and needs to be redone. The hair has thinned out a little and it does shed some but nothing like the cheaper brands. It ABSOLUTELY holds a curl. I'm gonna start my own business next month and like to use rebehair as my supplier. I'm completely hooked and will never use another kind of hair.
