Buying hair from India is wearing a shrine, a caurse or a promise. You don't know what you are wearing on your head.

I refuse to buy human hair, or wear them, but watching this video, and the young man from Vietnam, doing good to up lift others, and not depriving them with a fake promise of a blessing like in India, I will buy his hair. Bravo to Mr. Honorable Dan .

I think it’s disrespectful to buy hair, especially women who where sew ins. They don’t donate the hair when they’re done, they trash it and buy new bundles. So many emotions, memories, and experiences are tied into hair. I cut off my waistlength hair two months ago and it would pain me to sell it or donate it only for it to be discarded. Wigs don’t get kept forever either.
Mary Carroll
Mary Carroll 13 soat oldin
Hair is dedicated to false gods (satan/demons). Therefore, it is cursed and when you put it on your head, you are allowing demons to attach themselves to you. Once they attach, they will not let go unless you go through deliverance. This is the reason a true born again believer should NOT wear any type of extensions/hair piece. Also, makeup uses aborted babies in their products. Come out of this satanic world and live for Jesus. He is coming for a Bride that is pure and holy, not full of demons.

Hair that's been on the floor or chopped off someone who didn't want to do it will bring you nothing but bad juju. It sounds like Indian hair is the way to go they chop their hair in devotion to God.

this was a great video....very informative. however, i dont understand why all these jackasses in the comments keep saying people who wear extensions are "narcissists" or "horrible people"....please lets not forget that black women couldnt even wear natural hairstyles in their work environments for decades up until recently. lets not forget how they painted our natural hair texture as ugly and unprofessional....and lets not even get into why CANCER PATIENTS or victims of ALOPECIA would wear extensions. im not sure if leaving hateful stupid ass comments makes the trolls feel better, but i really hope yall arent projecting those weird ass views onto the women you approach irl. god bless

I bet those woman get paid hardly anything for their hair by everyone else. And to think it is sold on for thousands more. The same exploitation that exists in the diamond industry.
How can a person work for Dan company? I've got 30 years,experience plus, with knowledge about making wigs,hair pieces,and knot. I learned 40 years,and go how to do what hes,doing now

It needs to be more emphasized that as consumers we need to demand this kind of fair trade and support companies with these kinds of practices. If you continue to buy shady products, shady companies will continue to thrive.

Interesting. Let's be honest most of us including myself want beautiful long hair! I was lucky to grow out my own hair but some love hair extensions and I'm not judging. 💯 But if you want to grow your own hair out like I did then try my Ayurvedic Hair Growth oil.
