I love the curl pattern it’s just that the individual pack like this is a little harder to work with and it has that synthetic hair coating on it which makes the hair feel hard. Although it is synthetic if you use the right products to manage it and cut a lot of the frizz this hair will last for quite a while. I would recommend using the pre loop water wave in 16 in. because you don’t have to pull the hair apart, it’s all separated with a secure tie around each hair loop. A lot easier to install.
