I sold my hair when I was 13 years old, I had a long curly hair, no chemicals, no heat, etc. In Brazil, it got me 50R$ in 2011. Next time I have long hair and cut it I will sell it again.

There is a group of Orthodox Jews that have stopped buying wigs as the hair from India is idol worship....so this lady has found a new ethical source of hair. But still it's better to ware a scarf and skip the wigs.

I used to have 3ft of natural blonde hair and someone offered me over $700 dollars for it. Instead, I gave it to charity because I feel that my hair should be used for someone who needs it, rather than wants it.

this is very funny to me I am a Caucasian Canadian woman I went to India. My hair was probably 3 feet long at that point reddish golden blond. I went to a Beauty Salon in India, for a style . they cut my hair and I was told later that they sold it. It only cost me 10 Rupees at the beauty salon. 😲

I honestly don't think selling any part of a human is ethical. My hair is shit by beauty standards, and I don't care. Maybe the exploitation of people would stop if the demand stopped? I think we just really need to realize that we are all just fine with what we already have. I don't mean this as cliche, but people really are beautiful without all the extra crap.

To me my hair is not long and I have no attachment to it, my mom has cut my hair 3 to 4 times since I can remember. My hair is currently 24 inches long, but I want to cut it , I get tired of long hair, but I guess for some plp its very important. I want to sell mine but also donate. Sell for school donate for kids. Hopefully in time I can do both. My hair is not unique though just dark drown and wavy.

I love wigs but human hair is too expensive so I go with synthetic but this video just had me tearing up because I pay 100-200 for human hair and they buy it for 3 dollars and because they really need the money they sell it...thanks for opening my eyes and letting me know that synthetic hair is the best way to go.... it's a lot of work but I think I can manage ❤

This makes me sad that I wore extensions for so long. I wore them from 7th grade to my junior year. I don’t know if I would’ve cared where it came from then because how unaware I was of stuff like this but I will definitely not be wearing extensions or wigs without knowing where it came from and if it was ethical. So eye opening.

As a woman who grows her hair out, because of her belief system. I can't imagine cutting my hair off. I can't imagine a price I would ever put on it. I feel terribly for these Woman, although I know they are making their own choices. I pray that people who have extensions/wigs realize the sacrifice someone made for them to have it.

Thank you, Refinery29, for introducing Dan to us. I thought of buying extensions throughout my life but never did because I feared I could be supporting exploitation (as seen in your video; $2 or $3 dollars is criminal). I don't feel like wearing extensions now, but if I wish to buy any, I know what company I will purchase from.

well i know one source of hair from india is from a place called 'tirumala" people come to the infamous temple and voluntarily shave / cut their hair as offerngs to the god and this hair is then exported t different countries and they are able to earn millions of dollars for temple refurnishing and many other things especially making jewellery for the god and in fact the gold and diamonds found in the treasury are worth billions of dollars
