Egotistical woman in the west forcing poor woman to make degrading choices, all in the name of vanity and they don't care about the woman at the other end, why do they wear these wigs to hide their ugliness, to give a false impression of themselves, to attract awful attention, and they have been exploiting woman who are so poor and uneducated, it's a curse they carry on their heads. And they have been doing it for years, the magnitude of woman feeding of other woman is disgraceful. The men are like pimps. It's shameful and primitive. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵 how are these woman who exploit other woman adding value in this world, this is our time in history is this what they will have written about themselves, they used other woman to hide their shame, people need to grow a God Consciousness.

I donated my hair when I got it cut. I was 13 and I had REALLY long hair. It went all the way to my knees. My mom wouldn't let me cut my hair for the longest time and when I graduated middle school my dad took me to my grandma's hair salon and I donated my hair to a children wig maker.

I actually started full-on crying when that woman had her hair cut. I'm half native american and my ancestors had their hair stolen from them, so keeping my hair long is really important to me. It's wonderful that Dan offered her a fair price and she can use that money to better her family's quality of life, and that he's breaking into a market that has taken only advantage of women like her. Best of luck to him!

Some is pure horse's hair. All the weave people not just women but people wear EVERYDAY it's no way everybody get real human hair every time!! That's impossible. They can show U a sample but it doesn't mean it's all real human hair. U can believe that like everybody that wear weave grew it themselves. They probably collect it from the garbage and recycle it who knows? Like when people go in hotels and they don't know what's clean or dirty just by coming in the room, U can't tell. They may have somewhat real hair from some places but the hair in America that we see them selling all the time it as to be mostly fake

My son had long thick hair so when he decided to cut it short he donated his hair to kids with cancer, we’re from Australia and I was so proud of him putting his hair into a post pack and sent it off. I hope it got to be used for cancer wigs I was disappointed when nobody at least sent a thank you

I have been in the hair industry for the past 19 years, unfortunately the Chinese corrupted the market, specially with their economical and labor power; few years back we were able to find more pure hair, although "pick up hair" has always been available, you were able to choose what to buy, now days, if you don't have reliable source it is almost impossible to buy good quality hair, I always like to tell my clients that the hair available for extensions is what i call "COMMERCIAL" hair. I love working with hair cut from one donor, too bad the demand is too great and the main problem is availability. Now there is still a few companies out there who offer hair closest to virgin, too bad when you ship hair into the united states, this hair must be fumigated before it leaves India (certificate of fumigation is provided). also some of the one donor hair comes with "imperfections" gray hair etc etc. so lots of hair vendors or distributors use henna dye to cover these "imperfections".then it comes coating it with silicone etc etc. So, it is a chain reaction type of problem, how to supply the demand?? specially when customers, like, that silicone finish in the hair. We treat har in a different way, not just one type of hair fits all, I feel every person is trying to achieve something and sometimes they compromise that, just because it is only certainty hair available, and i'm talking about very silky straight hair; How about customer with more of a more natural coarser or kinkier type of hair? we deal with all ethnicities, African American, hispanics, caucasian and i like to guide my clients towards a more natural type of hair, silky with silky, coarse with coarse, curl with curl, etc.

If an extension fall out, you'd be able to tell it's an extention and you wouldn't really even become a suspect. Unless only a strand comes out and they have to drive hours to find you for you to tell them you sold your hair and that's why. Then they'd find who you sold it to and who they sold that extention to. I don't think you need to worry about that. They need more evidence than DNA to prove it was you.
