Yea, I still want that Brazilian hair in the worst way...
 
Why do they ship it to Brazil to be processed? Do they have a special way of doing so there, or does that just make it ok for them to call it "Brazilian" because it technically did come from Brazil?  I haven't had any of this hair, but the pics I have seen look so soft, unlike processed hair in my opinion.  The curls don't seem to be too uniformed, making it seem more natural, not "man-made."
 
Then again, maybe that could be why Nature Girl closed for so long, because the Brazilian hair was getting too hot to handle and they needed that time to build up stock, and import/ export that processed hair to/ from Brazil Wacko
 
Whatevs... October 15th can't get here fast enough for me!

I can believe that. I have seen a couple of vendors that had "real" Brazilian hair that was WAY more expensive than what some of these sites are selling it for. It's very difficult these days to tell what's really real & what's not. Sometimes if the price is too good to be true, it probably is. I will add though, that's not always the case.
  You don't have to believe me,I'm just sharing with you what I've been told from an Indian supplier from India!! This isn't taking away from the fact that whatever process that has been made to make the hair FEEL more textured is any less great! If you like/love this kind of hair, that's great! Just because someone tells you that something is what it is doesn't make it always true! Sorry! Now the hair LEAVES Brazil after it's been processed and ready for sale,but it originally comes from INDIA,and it would cost more if you had to process it vs. having it VIRGIN and untouched! Remember don't be mad at the messenger!Wink  Wagmans only sells the hair,they don't have a plant here that actually process the hair here,it's already done and delivered to them and this is also a FACT!

Brazilians on a whole are not known for readily cutting their hair!  Now we all know that the Chinese have MAD skills at processing the hair to be anything you want it to be,so wouldn't you think that other countries could learn how to do the same and call it there own! I'm not mad at any of them,because if I like the product.I'm buying,and if I don't have to pay an arm and a leg for it,that's even better!Big%20smile

HUH?Shocked

I am SO confused right now. I was basically co-signing with your post. I respect you as a hairstylist & you and MANY others on this board have WAY more knowledge than me. Just know that I RARELY, if ever, post anything negative.  I was saying that I CAN definitely believe that it's Indian hair & that some vendors purport to have "real" Brazilian hair, but it is very, very expensive. Hopefully you just mis-read my post.

However, this could EASILY be achieved in the rodding. To achieve the look of natural curly hair the hair would be rodded using various sized rods placed randomly. I've seen this technique used when perming natural hair. A stylist in the shop I used to go to did that all the time to give her perms a more natural look.

I think that this is possible but not true for all vendors I'Ve seen and touched hair that is clearly from diffrent orgins various itailian, india, china and ect. Now if a vendor is selling hair they claim is virgin and is really processed to achieve a certian texture then that is jacked up cause you think you are buying virgin purvian hair for example and its really just a curly perm. I don't think any woman regardless of her race wants to chop of her hair unless she chooses to there was even an thread a while back about indian women being forced to chop of their hair in order for it to be sold, I thought that was really unfair 
for most people regardless of (race) it takes years for really long hair to grow

Hair does take a long time to grow!!

Some pple cut their hair for several reasons.. Indian women cut hair when they get marry, to give thanks for woteva(childbirth, health etc) SOme African women cut their hair to mourn etc.. and some brazillian.indian chinese, indonesia, etc cut hair for money!!!! not everyone is being forced to cut their hair.. the point about Brazillian hair is that its hard to find.. its not impossible.. bit its hard.
