    So the high price for a wig is simply for the labour people in the West put into creating the wigs, and not the source?
    What a disgusting industry. I hope Dan becomes the norm, not the exception.

    I’m from Venezuela, and I can tell you there are lowkey hair robbers. And it’s not even at gun point! They target people with pony tails and easy to chop off hair, and then sell that to don’t even ask me where.


    YUPPP and sometimes people are kidnapped for hair and valuables.

    Go Bless these women who have to choose parting with their hair in order to vie for a better life... & not for foolish vanity or worthless desires or endeavors, but rather to improve heir lives in the most modest & truly important & simplistic ways that most other people who are purchasing the hair simply take for granted.

    This is something that I have always wondered about... where all of this hair that many people do just purchase for vain &/or short-term “throwaway” use do not truly stop to think bout the sourcing of these human hair... bodily materials that real-life people are sacrifice to provide.

    God Bless this hair sourcer for his transparency & for actually paying these women sustainable monies for their personal sacrifices. It is important for this man to continue paying these (otherwise) exploited populations of people an ethical & proper wage for the hair, especially as their is usually a disparaging difference between what the hair sourcer will get from those he sells the hair to (& then what the Buyer turns around & charges for the hair to the end-user or consumer. - May this hair sourcer & seller always run his company in an ethical & transparent manner.

    Also, to the author of this Refinery29 video post, that you & Bless you for making this one of your missions to bring this desperately important information to light & educating all those to avail themselves of this post. I greatly appreciate this educational journey & I plan to share it forward. - Thank you 🙂 👍

    As someone who has donated my hair for cancer patients wigs every 3 years (My hair grows extremely fast), I understand the pain these women go through when cutting it off. I never get paid to donate my hair, but I understand the fear of what you will look like after you cut it off as well as the sadness to see it go. I have been scammed out of my hair before, one of the foundations I donated to reportedly uses its donations for extensions and wigs, not for cancer patients witch aggravates me so much. The fact that celebrities don't care whose hair their wigs are made out off every time I hear about a human hair wig I think about the pain of the cancer patients the pain of losing my hair, and the pain of being scammed. I understand why people would want human hair wigs, but I find it insensitive how they don't care about the people that are in pain because of their choice to buy that wig. I think people should be more considerate about the origins​ of their wigs but also pray that the scamming ends soon!
