My friends have always complimented me on my beautiful, thick hair. It is wavy brown with natural highlights. It is actually slightly longer than 14 inches when braided (so even longer in a pony tail), but I rounded down to account for any end damage. My hair is virgin, never died, permed, or blow dried. It has only even had hair spray a handful of times. Non smoker, non drinker, no drug use. Hair was washed approximately every third day, with conditioner use each time. Braided nightly to avoid damage. I have two braids, each with a top circumference of approximately 1.5 inches. I will sell them separately or together, $150 for one braid or $250 for both braids or Best Offer. Money will be donated to set up my inner city middle school classroom.
