    Dan actually puts effort cutting the hair, offers more than $100, and is doing it for even more money, which is fair. Dan is truly a miracle.

    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.

    SpankBuda .......2 days ago

    No, black females pay tons of money for extensions. Well over a billion dollars a year! A group of females that's worth $5 somehow have tons of disposable cash giving most of it to enrich other countries instead of using it towards their own "community".
