How good are "natural" hairs for sew-ins? what are the pros and cons?
would you recommend them for someone on a tight (student) budget? If so, which brands are best. I've been with wigs for a while and don't know much about any good weaves right now.
TIA!!

Do you mean natural hair as in virgin hair versus synthetic hair? If so, synthetic hair is cheaper, but most look fake. The difference from a financial standpoint is the upfront cost. You can spend more money upfront for quality, reusable hair or go the more economical route and purchase hair that will tangle, shed, mat, and need to be replaced after every install.

Some synthetic hairs do not give me much options in way of styling. With virgin hair, you can go from curly/wavy, straight, roller set, etc.

Since you're a student, you may want to stick with the more economical option (BSS hair) or an inexpensive, but good quality virgin hair.

am sorry, i asked the lady at da hair shop what does it mean when the package says "human hair ixed with 'natural hairs'"? and she said "animal hairs".
so i guess i'm asking about animal hair used or mixed in with weave. DOES IT HOLD UP BETTER THAN SYNTHETIC HAIR?

a lot of BSS 'human' hair is mixed with synthetics and animal hair (YAK hair) as a filler... this is usually only when purchasing the Yaki type hair as the animal hair has a coarser texture more suited for a lot of AA relaxed hair types...
 
If you go with a remy type BSS hair- from the likes of sensationnel (godess remy) or Outre velvet remy, u will recieve much better quality hair and it is possible to reuse if looked after... the only problem is, the cost of this 'premium' branded BSS hair can sometimes be more than purchasing virgin/processed remy hair online...
 
As you are a student, you will be better biting the buck and paying out for some good hair which will last as in the long run you will end up spending a lot more on the BSS stuff.... having said that, if you only plan for a max of a 4 week install then I suggest sensationnel premium now/plus in the darker colours.
