    Go for height enhancers, height surgeries or just height related. Because I came from an Asian family and height is a must in every Asian household. I feel suffocated when I'm being teased because I'm short and I'm strating to feel uneasy and I want to spend big amount of money to buy height enhances but I'm kinda against after I watched your lightening products video.

    Here in philippines we have lots of hurricane disaster coming every year and tons of relief goods are donated in the country but a lot of people speculates that some Reliefs Goods aren't given to the people who needs help. I don't know if its true I just read it on the school paper ones but it would be cool to get an answer.

    I'm sorry... but this is just a trend that I will never understand or accept. I will NEVER understand why anyone wants to wear someone else's hair. Hair is LITERALLY excess keratin, excreted from the head. Its bodily waste. I was actually bullied for my hair growing up. I have thick, curly hair... I was teased and called Mufasa and had people sing "the lion sleeps tonight" when I walked by. Even as an adult, I had coworkers put "Hakuna Matata" on my desk... so I laugh when I see people so desperate to have hair that is not theirs. I find it pathetic and weak. But that's MY opinion

    Does it matter? where the hair comes from? it is Not a vital organ which people cut out of another person forcefully, it is not a fucking kidney, OK? You don't have to kill someone to get it, and the person who sold their hair, is not in danger of losing his/her life, OK? it will grow back, so shut up already. It is like , my toe nail clippings, I cut them off, I sell them to you, I grow more, so what the fuck is the big deal? If you think it's such a big deal, I'll Give you my toe nail clipping, for free!!! How's that? Find some other subject for your show, this subject is corny and too desperate. Tell your producers, this subject is too desperate guys will use anything to blow it out of proportion for some ratings, huh? Pathetic....

    I don't know why at the end you're asking for regulation for transparency. It's going to monopolize the current competitors, Remy and his rivals, while the barriers to entry are significantly risen. It'll make paperwork, fees, maybe licensing and make the product cost more. As new products are created and innovated upon, there's a small timeframe of market unawareness to it. Obviously now it's obvious that Remy is very successful and is well known by its consumers. No regulation is necessary, and that's a sample of how free markets work

    can't you just grow your hair for a few moths so it gets long, then cut is and make it into hair extensions so that you can have short hair but when you feel like having long hair you just use your own hair.

    awesome! ethical! fair! = good direction for those seeking long human head hair for making long hair extensions it's not easy even for those who can grow extra naturally long terminal length head hair, as it takes often over a year of growth to return back to full length even "fair trade" payment that covers as much as a month of living expenses, in poorer countries, still does not come anywhere close to the needed timespan to regrow the same length, plus long lengths that are both healthy and well kept, do not come free of effort.

    You know, I'm really glad that the guy paid the women a sum that is worth a lot over there, and didn't even leave then with a crappy hairdo. He could have taken more hair off just to exploit them, but instead he left them with an attractive shoulder-length blunt cut so they still look feminine and pretty, and feel good about themselves.

    My hair has gone from chin length to elbow within 1 and a half years. Give me another two years and it's going to reach finger tips. I can grip the hair growth on my legs with my fingernails within two hours of shaving. I have a lot of ingrown hair, sores and such. My follicles hurt all the time. People only see the silky black waterfall around me though. I shave my head every 3 to 4 years after it gets that long. I only give to charities. I don't sell. It's been wonderful to watch what happens. I didn't know hair could change so many lives until I started doing this.

    It sad to see these woman wearing hair that collected from floors, sewers, and obtained from foreign country? To exploiting women from another countries like Vietnam, India is bought for $3.00 per head, then sold for hundreds of dollars in the united states. Black women need to stop wearing this exploited, unethical rape of Asian women hair! They should stop and start wearing horse hair! African kinky hair is beautiful, I have straight hair and I like my hair to be curly, I will not wear wigs or human extension hairs! It is unethical! Stop exploiting women with straight hairs from Asia or Asian children's hair to be sold to these American Women who want to wear extension straight hair! We all know that it is an extension, not your natural look! Beauty is in the eye of beholder? What is going on with these women? Fake hair, fake nails, fake boobs, fake eyelashes, what else, fake VJJ?
