Is 40inch 50inch 60inch long hair extensions expensive?
5 Ladies with long hair from different cities came to Province Shangdong at Aug.12th 2017. They attract people with their long hair, total 13.6 meters (about 535 inches) added together. The longest hair among them is 3.5 meters (about 137 inches).
Long hair really attracts. Do you think so?
Below the hair review video of Malibu Dollface, I saw an interesting comment, “these girls really about to start wearing 40" hair on an everyday basis. Honestly, it's not for everyone and it's very high maintenance. This looks great on you.” Yeah, I am about to purchase a lace wig with long hair. But I am also thinking, is long hair, like 40inches, 50inches or even 60inches, expensive? Can I afford it? Or is it worth?
I search some information on the Internet. And I am shocked to read that a woman with 3 meters long hair (about 120 inches) was told that a businessman wanted to buy her hair with USD3000. The price is amazing but within the expectation. Why is it so high?
Firstly, 100% virgin hair is called braiding hair in China, while temple hair in India. It is directly cut from donors, not collecting from the salon, died dropping hair. Like the above picture. This kind of hair preserves the donor's nutrients and moisture as well as the cell activity. It is much healthier, so it last much longer time after it is made into the weave, lace wig, lace closure, frontal, clip in extensions or fusion hair.
Secondly, this braiding hair is cut from only one separate donor. Can hair be bleached into light colors or not, depends on if it is already colored before cutting from donors. If virgin hair, never dyes or bleach, it can be bleached to very light colors, like #613, #60, or special colors (red, purple, blue, gray…). But if it is dropping hair, it is mixed with virgin hair and colored hair, it is hard to get the colored hair out. This kind of hair can dye dark colors only, lightest to #27. Even some hair can bleach to light color, it would be with some mixed color in it, not like 100% virgin hair. For 100% virgin hair, the color would be pure after dyeing or bleaching.
Thirdly, high-quality virgin hair (braiding hair or temple hair) can be colored, restyled easily. Also, hair would be damaged too much like dropping hair. It can be reused after dyeing or restyling. So price is much expensive than dropping hair collected from the salon. The longer the hair is, the more expensive it will be. The reason is as following:
1) Long hair is hard to grow and collect. Less and fewer girls are patient to grow such long hair. It needs much care. So long hair is rare.
2) Long hair is costly to collect. Like the news, we talked above, USD3000 for collecting 120inches hair. This price is the only cost, not including processing cost, time and labor work.
Inclusion, long hair is quite expensive. The longer, the more expensive. Because of the high price, braiding hair is also the main object of adulteration. In fact, it takes a lot of experience to truly identify it. (The simplest method of distinguishing real hair or synthetic hair). So we LOKS HAIR recommend that a new or less-experienced hair starter can choose a good hair supplier to avoid being cheated. Especially don't decide a vendor only with price comparison, otherwise, you'll be hurt.
