What makes you different?
What make us different is the quality of our hair, which is great, with the affordable price. Our hair has the cuticle intact, which makes the hair last much longer. We also have to grades of hair 5A & 7A. 5A hair is standard, what most hair vendors/boutique sale. 7A hair is where the bottom of the hair is a lot fuller. The quality of hair for both grades is the same for our hair.
