    It's just plain Gross and Pathetic, Ridiculous about some nasty ass hair, majority of every person that wear extension weave or wigs never wash the hair, how filthy dirty you wear the hair over and over, you get bugs, worms just nasty..
    I have my own and will not ever put that nasty dirty shit in with my beautiful hair.. That's a shame how these people pay others a little over a hundred dollar, and yet sell it for many hundreds or thousands just for someone else's hair.. People Don't Wash Their Fake Hair Ever!!!

    India, China, Malaysia. Sometimes dead people.
    Well for my community I am FORCED to wear an Asian woman’s hair as white people have demonized African hair. We’re told our kinky hair is ugly. The mental chains of African women must be broken. I have to accept that I’m black, kinky haired and proud. My hair is 16 inches long straightened and getting longer so I am now accepting who I am. And screw anyone who hates my hair!!!

    Synthetics, y'all! I've been saying it for years. If you want extensions or a wig, there are some very very high quality synthetics that are extremely realistic. And yes, many synthetics are treated so you can use heat on them.

    This is exploitation disguised as some form of ethical business. If this is acceptable then let's embrace prostitution in the same manner.
