    They can sell that hair for 1,000. Giving them 100$ isn't honourable, it's just the lesser evil. As for $3, well that is just fucking abuse. Cunts! Taking away a very culturally and personally important part of someone's identity for $3. Lame!!!

    So if you want to get a weave or hair extensions you know to check out Dan's company. I assume his hair is very expensive though. If he paid 100 dollars for the hair you should figure it will be anywhere from 200-400. Plus he takes the time and care to make the wigs if that hair is for a wig.

    I've never understood the whole concept of wearing weave or wigs. It seems odd to me to put someone else's hair on my head. I can understand wearing a wig if someone has lost their natural hair to a health issue like cancer etc or your hair is extremely thin. But aside from that I don't see the point at all. Why do people hate their natural hair so much? I just don't get it.

  62. Royaltybrand11

    Royaltybrand1113 hours ago

    Omg I don't wear weave as my hair is almost waist length and super thick and curly plus it's expensive like if I get a weave I want it thick and full and that's like at least $600 for hair or more. Since I'm a hair stylist if i do decide to get my hair weaved I would save money by doing my own hair. With that being said I love Dan if I buy hair to change up my look Dan is the man. I like how ethical he is and that it's fair trade, I like that the women are not sacrificing to idols so no weird demonic spirits are attached to the hair and I love that it's helping out entire families. I think it's truly amazing how black women across the world and especially in America are keeping the economy in countries most of us never been to thriving. IF we decided to no longer buy hair and decided to rock our own hair as a collective unit could u imagine how that would inadvertently affect so many ppl? Yes other races wear extensions but none as much as women of color this natural hair movement I'm sure put a dent In some pockets

  69. A Mess

    A Mess15 hours ago

    Those that want to donate hair (not to Locks of Love, they’re evil), don’t give up if you have processed or shorter hair! My hair was just past my shoulders when I shaved it down to the scalp and donated to an organization in my hometown called Wigs for Kids. My hair is curly and has been bleached, but they take the low quality hair and sell to companies that make real hair dolls to fund their operation and allow them to give wigs out for free to kids battling chemotherapy.

    We need more Dans in the world for sure. I knew about the human hair industry, that's why I refused to buy human hair extensions.Because of all the shady shortcuts like grabbing hair from drains and mixing in animal hair, there are people who have had mites and fungal infections from purchased hair they had fused with their own.

    I donated my hair free for an organisation that makes and donates free wigs for cancer patients. So this is an awesome deal for me. Hairs are very expensive though and should be paid well if for sale. The guy is doing a great job. So many women being offered a penny for their pricy beauty.
