    Questions about partial human hair, or “human hair blend” wigs. Are these a marketing scam? I’ve purchased two now, thinking that they would probably last longer and easier to care for than cheap synthetic wigs, but much cheaper than full human hair. But after a year, both of them have turned into rats’ nests! I’m so frustrated.

    Thoughts/experience? Seems like a waste of money on both counts (and making me mad because I really love how they both looked!).

     

    Thanks,

    Lexi

      To follow up on Stephanie’s post, there is also an ingredient in some makeup from other countries and the people who harvest this crop are treated poorly and exploited.

      I do not have time right now to look it up. Maybe later. Sorry.

      Human hair?   Where is it from?  Sources are dubious to say the least.

      Most human hair comes from China and India,  from Temples where devotees have their hair  shaved off  in religious ceremonies. The temples harvest this hair, store it in filthy damp warehouses, then pick out the lice, wash and dye it and auction it to the wig industry.  The Indian minister for textiles said “a fraction of it comes from temples, where the rest comes from we have no idea.”  There are reports of gangs going round and shaving girls heads, as it is such a lucrative business – multibillion dollars in fact. Some comes from Brazil, presumably from exploiting the poor.

      So not for me – I consider it unethical.  My head itches just thinking about it!

      Interesting question – are vegans “allowed” to wear wigs containing human hair?  Its an animal by-product!  So I assume not!

      There is no need to use human hair  – synthetic hair is now an extremely good alternative.

      just saying…  just my opinion.

        I actually hadn’t even considered that angle! I’ve had some really pretty synthetic wigs that were like $20 to $30. They’re only good for about a year, but at that price, it’s easy enough to just replace…

      I’ve got a human blend wig, and I think you may be right. It felt way better than any of the cheaper wigs I’d gotten up to that point, but it does want a bit more care to keep in proper order. If course, it’s also probably my longest wig, and that may account for things as well. I may just stick to shorter wigs…

        Right? They seem nicer at first, but seem to degrade just as quickly. Just buy a cheaper all synthetic wig to start and replace it more often, I guess. And, to be honest, how would you even know if its’ actually got any human hair in it? OH well…

        Amazon has a spray on conditioner for wigs. I think it works great. That may help.
