This was my second time purchasing the silk closure and it is just as beautiful as the last one. I can attest to the durability and high quality of the closure, as well as the hair itself. Not only do I color them, but I bleach them blonde and process them further by adding highlights and lowlights for dimension. After deep conditioning, the hair is just as soft and beautiful as it was when I received it. As far as the durability is concerned, I have personally washed and reused my last closure for 9 months. Even at that point, it had minimal shedding in comparison with closures I have purchased from other companies. So it goes without saying that I highly recommend Perfect Locks hair.
