I am impressed with Refinery 29's documentary, this 11 minute video is remarkable and eye opening, the hair trade industry is not something majority of the people from all over the world are aware of. I am a south asian woman but I live in the Philippines, so hair length is not as important to us compared to other asians in South East Asia, but I love how you have shown the methods that hair can be collected ethically and legally as well. I am going to subscribe. Also please do a video on how the make up industry does their animal testing.

once I saw a documentary here in brazil. a girl with more than 1.50 virgin hair was offered only about 100 dollars for the "professional" and of course he got lot more. my hair grows really fast but I donate it, many people do it here so institutions that help people with cancer make great wigs (they have many volunteers). it's bizarre for me to see someone with a hair is not his or hers

The temple shown in this video is Balaji temple of Tirupathi.. the richest temple in the world... many people donate tons of gold and precious stuff here to the temple... but the most precious donation is said to be human hair offering to the god... thats the reason you will find high quality hair in this temple..

What does the temple do with the money it gets from selling the hair and all of its monetary and gold donations?

I understand hair donation in Indian temples. There is some strange religious belief behind it...but shame ful it is..and idiotic is that. The fallen hair..is become an Industry...and f..g temple management is behind it. I think..the fallen hair..must be burnt...and not given to temple..bastards..who make money out of it.

Why f....g women can not grow them-self rather than buying from poor woman around. Shame on you those who buy extensions. They use extensions when they like..Bullshit.

The fact that Dan was the only one not to be afraid to show how he does things is the BIGGEST indicator that he is doing whats right and ethical. For the others to reject shows what they do are obvs do not is not and most likely shady.

these 3rd4rth world countries are so corrupted. what do you expect. they do whatever possible to get money. if they stop practicing their savage wild animal traditions then change can be made. but only if these savages are ready to leave their 15th century life traditions beliefs cultures religions behind. all the money america gives to these poor countries and still they havent even fixed their economy, sewage system, the water is still dirty, people are still living in poverty filth waste disease and its disgusting. savages cannot think like 21st century normal human being americans. these poor crooked old world countries need to stop having kids and fix their mentality before asking for more handouts. we cannot help these countries until they ready to help themselves. look at them terrorist palestines. these muslim psychos still throwing their babies at the border to be sacrificed as suicide bombers etc. isreal must shoot them down to protect their own. when they ready to let go of their disgusting blood sacrifice fanatic culture then things will get better

The older lady really did look younger with shorter hair. I hope she was helped as much as possible. Gosh it's so sad. I wear hair extensions and I'm very grateful. I've always said prayers to my hair extensions. I don't just throw them away either. I make braids and recycle them.

This makes me so sad to see. If women wanted long beautiful hair they should take care of their own like these women do. Stop dying your hair, Stop using hot tools and find natural remedies to make your hair healthier and grow beautifully. These women take great care of their hair to be sold for so low. Even if Dan is offerring them more pay for it. This wigs are being sold for a ridiculous price. Thats not fair at all.

I do believe its great for people who lost their hair because of an illness but for those who just buy because of pure laziness to not take care of their own is selfish.
