If you take care of this virgin hair will last way longer than I year. Let me start by saying this hair is sooo beautiful. I ordered a 18ins. The bundles were was very nice. I have had the hair a little over 7 months with 3 installs and the human hair extensions is still holding up. There is nothing I do like about this hair. There is no shedding and No tangling what so ever. The hair takes dye very well. This hair is by far my favorite. I am buying another of this one so that it will last for many years lol.
