    I would like to know if companies lie about the ingredients on their products and if it's easy for them to say "cruelty free" without going through a legitement validation process. It should be illegal to do so, but many companies probably get away with these things.

    It's a reason only Dan in Vietnam was willing to show the ins and outs of how he conducts business. He was the only legit fair trade business. Paying $2-3 for hair is ripping off the grower. Thankful Dan understands these women need to live and have families to support. We need to help grow Dan's business.

  60. Lightlygobirdy

    Lightlygobirdy3 days ago

    This is very empowering for us all. If you buy poor quality extensions or wigs, they will not last. As a cancer survivor, it is difficult to be bald after chemotherapy. So, I salute Dan for implementing ethical processes for procuring hair and am grateful to pay more if I know what I am getting is ethically sourced. Most importantly, I would like the women that have sold their hair to know how grateful I AM for a good product that can change my life. I feel less afraid to go in public, to my children's school, or even to visit friends. For me, it is embarrassing to go into public almost bald.Thank you to Dan and ethical people worldwide. When I wear my wig, I silently thank the woman who sacrificed her hair so that I share in a global communion with her. She ((albeit unknown to me) has enabled me from being ridiculed in my community. I want Dan to tell his clients just that. :)

    I truly didn't care before watching this video. I thought 'aw hell another video about the corruption of the beauty community 🙄' but when I seen the synthetic hair I was disgusted! I have used synthetic mix before. And then hearing this lady's beautiful hair was offered only $2-3 dollars when for those inches we at least pay 120!!! I was more than temporarily moved. I'm not buying hair again unless I know the source is ethical. These beautiful women deserve so much more than being treated like sheep.

Being sheared and stripped of identity. At least these women who sell their hair to this man get something out of it.
