Nothing to add...

But I understand the frustration. Back when we joined BHM not a lot of women were on to this "Virgin Hair game". Now everybody wants a piece of the action. I have an old Wagman's price list and I cannot believe how inflated the prices are now.

Everybody and they momma is a vendor, not knowing a thing about the product they're selling. Everybody has it sewn into their heads. My 15 y/o cousin from AL talking bout "this Brazilian, next time Ima get Malaysian". Orly?

Sometime ago I was ranting and raving to my older cousin about Belle Noir Hair (yes that long ago) and she looked at me like I was retarded for smelling the hair and being so crazy about it. Now she talking about 18" down the back. This heffa literally just had the a Duby quickweave not long ago...
A lot of folks are on now. Prices have gone up and the supply is scarce... smh I don't know what to do either.

This! I can't stand when my flea market quick weave friends try to tell ME the difference between Malaysian, Brazilian and Himalayan hair. Its all Chinese. Then they have the nerve to look at me stupid when I say that like I have no idea about hair. Man I've been at this for years. These girls see one YouTube video and swear they know all about weaves. Gtfoh. And all these fly by night companies are just ordering from aliexpress and reselling it for double. All it is, is shaniqua selling hair out of her child's bedroom, not a real vendor with real business ethics.

I totally understand the frustration you feel.  When I first joined BHM, people were buying from AV's. Now everyone is going straight to the manufactures for lower prices. Unfortunately, it has caused a saturated market, and as mentioned, everyone is selling it.  Including me... maybe.

A doctor I work for introduced me to a partner of his who also sells hair strictly to vendors and hair salons. Its not Malaysian, Brazilian, Cambodian, Egyptian, Chinese, Peruvian, etc... it's simply Virgin Indian, and according to him, Pure Temple hair. The hair was over 100 per bundle, but I have a good feeling it was worth it.
 
I have not intsalled , but will be coming back to post pics and a review. You can PM me for more info, if you like.

Yes, back when I had joined BHM, I remember those days when we sit on the board and chat about Laniks, Wagmans and EP for virgin hair.  That was it, lol.  While I have no problem that it inevitably would grow as an industry, what I do have a problem is that everyone is trying to get a piece on the action but they are unqualified to do so. I really cannot wait for the day that I can afford some EP hair and call it a day!

Went to an event like a month ago. It was real small with just a few black businesses. 2 of them were selling Brazilian hair. I asked both what was the origin of the hair both told me Brazil. Said "oh, okay..." As if they answered my question.
It all looked like some regular Aliexpress hair.
I will admit the prices were decent and it was nice being able to actually touch and see the hair in person. Though I'm still a little skeptical. Maybe you should see if someone sells hair in your area.

Yes, those were the days. Everyone was willing to share a vendor or post pics of some new hair. New Topics all the time. Its pretty dead in the weave sections now. (And I'm tired of people reviving old ancient @ss Topics! Nvm, that's another story for a another day!)

Anywho! Why should I have to pay $600 to d@mn near a thousand dollars for ONE full weave/install. (Especially since I want like 3 different textures for 3 different installs/wigs).

The good/well known companies are selling hair for an arm and a leg now. God forbid you pay that much for hair and it revert like some experimental rat hair.

Aliexpress is a whole lot of research, more like investigation. Doing reverse picture lookups to see if the pics are legit. Asking a billion questions and googling addresses etc.. too much!

Pretty soon Ima take the B-Dogg plunge and buy a kilo of hair for the rest of my life...
