First thing is first, I won't be paying over £30 for these in future! When they arrived and I got them out of the packaging, there were little bits of black fluff or something in the hair that I spent 5 minutes pulling out, and when I ran my hand down each weave a clump of 5-6 hairs came out into my hand (although not every weave done that). After a while it stopped and they looked decent enough to put in my hair, and I have to say, they do like nice once they're in, it gives my hair good volume and length. The clips are very strong, I've bought extensions in the past and when I put them in my hair the clips don't grip and if tugged they would slide down, but these ones stay in place. I'm now going out to buy an ice blonde hair dye and then curl my hair, let's hope they last.
