Synthetic straight hair has a natural curl - style is already in place. We charge more for straight human because itís difficult to work with.
10. Can I pull the hair from my braids?
If you pull on the hair, yes, there is a chance you will pull it out of your braid. But why would you yank and pull the hair? Interlocks is a style that requires a gentle hand.
