This is a serious question... why don't they actually use horse hair? I know horse hair is like a joke about synthetic hair, but horses have really nice hair and it's real actual hair even if it's not human, unlike synthetic. I think horses have very beautiful hair.... lol maybe this is stupid, but I was thinking they make fur coats and all this other stuff out of animals, why not extensions as well?




Lol I am aware this is a stupid question, but look at the beautiful horse.

Probably because thats a show horse and you would have to kill the owner before cutting that hair

I've never felt horse hair, but I would imagine that the strands are extremely thick.

The strands are incredibly thick in diameter...will not blend with any human hair.

This reminded me of an old thread from way back in the day where someone ordered yak hair. Like actual hair from a yak. This was back when Wagman Primus only sold in bulk and the focus of their business seemed to be animal hair products. Keeping it all the way real, I remember the hair being very coarse with a slight wave, the ultimate ks/wave.

Just pulling this up again because after some recent research i have found that HORSE hair is actually being sold to us and blended with human hair oh well, search for yourself.. on alibaba search horse hair wig and view the images and descriptions that come up....... i know what my cap price for a unit will be now....

That was me, Jolie.  I have animal yak hair, goat hair and I have a bundle of CAMEL hair... they look like coarse yaki hair, never used them for anything, just bought them to have for reference... and yes, vendors do mix all sorts of animal hair into their products now, when they are not adding synthetic plastic fillers ... virgin human hair is rare.

yep especially at the couple hundred dollars we are paying for it..... i now understand that wig i am coveting for 280usd-350/400usd is likely due to being a stock unit and already prepared to go is probably mixed no matter what they say on the website or link.

hi lynn, did you ever try perming the hair for curl? did the curl set well or no? thanks

NJ, perm it? no I thought it would melt if I put perm on it. I had only bought it at that time to see what it looked like. I never used it, didn't want to put it on my head, I might start spitting like a camel, lol.

Thanks for posting the pix, Lynn. I'll bet that is is very sturdy but so sturdy that it would take forever to even slightly take a perm. Did the hair have a very strong animal odor?

No smell at all, very clean hair. Better than stank feet, corn chip smelling Aliexpress hair. I did not perm it, or do anything to the hair, other than I did take a small piece of the camel to flat iron, it looked just like press relaxed. It did not burn or melt. The hair remained in the bundles as it was not purchased to be used other than for demo/comparison to human hair. The company I purchased from caters to doll wigs, clown wigs or theatrical type wigs where human hair is too costly and not needed.

I have a question LynnNYC
 in your opinion would this Camel hair be a great cheap alternative for real hair when I am ventilating a full lace wig for the first time?
 I ask because i dont want to spend a lot of money on 100% human hair.. or should i say "100% human hair" just to mess it up... so thinking of a cheap alternative to human hair but not as plasticy as synthetic hair...

Opinions from anyone else is welcome of course i was just wondering as LynnNYC has rthe camel hair which she said looked like press relaxed hair.

Thanks :)

London, I honestly cannot answer that question. I've had the hair since I believe 2009 and it is still as you see it, tied in bundles. Never used. I only bought it for show and tell for students to compare animal hair to human hair. I only flat ironed a piece to see if it would disintegrate and it did not.

The camel is very soft, like cotton candy, and I do not think it would hold a style because hair needs to have a bit of swing/movement. Ventilating takes a lot of time. I've gotten very fast over the years, but still I do not want to spend a lot of time doing a full wig only to find out the hair does not behave well. Maybe if you did something small first, like a very small closure piece.

Not sure on the pricing now; you can practice ventilating with BSS store hair, Milky Way or something and just ventilate some squares, don't start a project yet until your knotting is clean and tight. Then do a closure and then try a wig. You may get too frustrated doing a wig your first project as it seems the end is never near, lol. I don't suggest it for new ventilators, start small.

Hey LynnNYC
Thank you so much fr your reply and taking the time to address my dilema in such an indepth manner.

I have done some ventilating before and really enjoyed it, i dont have a hobby and hoping that this will be it, unfortunately i dont wear weaves at the moment so making a closure would sit for ages unless i sold it to order. I will definately take your advice regarding the use of BSS bulk hair. just hate that stores are charging in the UK

 for decent 18-22 length hair near enough the equivalent of 70-80usd. If it takes around 2 packs 200grams to creat a full unit i feel a bit cheated paying that for BSS hair :(

I will take your advice to maybe do a few squares first, i dont intend on opening up a business or selling them just for my own use really because then i can ventilate at my leisure :)

If you have any other advice i would really appreciate keeping in touch, if you are too busy thats ok, if not just PM me to let me know you are happy to stay in touch or not :)

I wont bombard you with questions as i am pretty resourceful and have managed to get a a fair amount of stuff about wig making and videos professional industry manuals etc.. online but could do with a buddy who understands ventilating and just likes talking hair every now and then as I cant find anyone in the UK ( you may have seen my post, had one reply but nothing since)

either way

Thanks for taking the time to advise me and I have taken your advice and suggestions onboard :)

No problem, London.  You can't find anyone in the UK?  UK is the mecca of wigmaking.  I was actually going to take courses there before I was fortunate enough to find my mentor here in the States.  PM when you wish.

HA! According to my Indian Vendor I just spoke with Weds! Chinese Vendors do mix village and street Indian hair with Horse hair and synthectic fibers and then chemically treat the hair and package it as Virgin Remy and sell it to us! He said you can buy the animal hair from Trade Key #bow

horse hair is very thick and course, it's actually pain full to touch. if you run your fingers thru a horses hair mane or the tall your can cut your hands! it's almost feels like tiny razor blazes. Just think horse hair is used for violin strings. you don't want that in your head!

I have rode horses and you don't cut your hair on their hair it is soft and thick in fact its has been used for HUMAN hair wigs for century's,
-I personally think all this Indian hair and stuff we buy is not actually peoples hair but animal and other fibers blended
as for the violins the hair is used on the bow's not the strings!

Wow. I hope we are not getting horse hair, I would be really upset.

Horse hair human hair- what's really the issue? are you saying you would be made because it cost so much or because its animal hair instead of Human hair? I wear weaves but the concept of human hair weaves is kinda gross if I think about it too much

Date Posted: Sep 10 2014 at 1:56am
I personally would be upset if it was horse hair, because I would only want to wear human hair.

You guys are going to laugh but when Wegmans was going out of business, I contacted them about purchasing horse hair. I wanted to know if the Horsehair could be wefted on to a track for installs... they told me NO then they cannot weave the hair for wefting hair because they can't sell it for human installment. I was determined to get that hair and wash it in ACV rinse and deep conditioning... put it in my head and see what it does. LOL
