Durability & Care

Hair is incredibly durable when woven together. It does not require any special coating or treatment to stand the test of time, as a true heirloom should.

These should be worn gently, not during strenuous activities outdoors or in, to ensure moisture does not settle under the hair, which could damage it over time.
