I think we all know how hard it is to get honest answers from vendors...We spend all our time sourcing from alibaba, TK, Aliex, and many many more. I always ask questions do you offer unprocessed hair that has not been "steam Processed" and they all say yes -but what does the picture show Steam processed waves and curls.....
I've sent many a vendors questions and pricelist inquires and two days ago I received a call from a vendor I hit up a while back and I really appreciated his honesty so much so I will be jumping out to do a risk order this Friday! *Fingers Crossed* some interesting tidbits from the convo though (WE ARE NOT CRAZY LADIES!)
There is no such thing as Brazilian or Malaysian hair it is all Indian hair processed to achieve curls and a name slapped on it..
Chinese vendors come over there and buy hair not from the temples but from the villages and anybody willing to sell them hair off the streets for how much do you ask? $100.00 for a TON that's 907kilos!!(so nothing they sell is Remy) & those same Chinese vendors purchase Animal hair preferably Horse Hair from TK (which he agrees you can’t tell the difference from horse hair & human hair off looks!) (You’ve seen those raw bundles of animal hair for the low-I know I have) and mix that with the hair from the village along with synthetic fibers and then chemically treat the hair and sell it to us and we wonder why it crawls up our backs and dies! smh oh yeah he said that those same Chinese vendors hit him up for "sample orders" to send to us in the USA (The good old dupe and swat)
He also admitted that "All" curly hair has been processed to achieve the curls! Now how they achieve this is within the integrity of the company. I was shocked that he was able to answer my questions and give me insight on some of these things (that we've all speculated) but I’ve never heard it from a vendors mouth! not ONE!! He let me know his curly is the only hair that goes through this process because curly curly hair really doesn't exist like that! BOW
Hopefully his hair is EVERYTHING…(I'll be back with pictures )
