Hey, ladies. I'm a longtime lurker (from way back in '07/'08), first time poster. I'm usually on LHCF but I recently decided to get into lace fronts/full lace wigs to help me overcome the APL to BSL hurdle.

My question to all of you is: what is up with the secrecy surrounding vendors? Anytime someone asks for a vendor for wefts or wigs, the thread goes 'look around', 'do a search', and if the poster is lucky, one person will come up with a name (without instructions for how to contact this person, mind you) and that's it. 

If the issue is a matter of repetition, why, on a board devoted to hair extensions, is there not a sticky with a list of reputable vendors of said extensions?  

If the issue is with people thinking 'if too many people find out about my vendor, the quality will go down'--when has this ever happened to make it a valid fear? 

If the issue is 'I don't want other people to look as good as me', it would be prudent to remember where our own hair was before we found the forums. I know for a fact that my hair was not living up to its potential before I found the hair boards and as such, I take it upon myself to pay it forward to newbies looking for the same guidance I was a few short years ago. 

The whole secrecy and drama aspect surrounding something as simple as pointing someone in the right direction is the main reason why I never post on BHM in the first place. I searched and found no answer directly to this question as addressed to the board and I'm curious about the response I'll receive.

Type bandwagon in the search box and you'll see the reason why....

I have wondered this also and I find it totally ridiculous.  IMO, who cares if someone else purchases a unit from the same vendor?  It may be the same hair, and could be the exact style, but will look different on each individual. SMH!  I get the majority of mine (CLW-66 Virgin Malaysian) from QDHairbeauty, but have also purchased (Virgin Indian) from Fine Lace Wigs and I get great quality units with both companies.  Now that wasn't as hard as people think, and if someone else purchases the exact same thing, it will still look as different on me as it does on 1,000 other people.Smile

I searched 'bandwagon' and all I got was some sort of Mafia talk (??).

I completely agree. Makeup gurus on Youtube (even ones who aren't sponsored and are buying the cosmetics out of pocket) tell ALL their secrets and products. You can mimic their look but it won't be exactly the same. I really do not understand this secrecy thing.

Go to advance search and search anytime and type in Anson. That was pure BANDWAGON from 1 person recommending the vendor. Everyone and their mama started ordering for him. He could'n't keep up with the demand and hence he started sending out crappy hair. Reviews went from 10 stars to 2 stars.

Then he must wasn't that good or his company was small to keep up with supply and demand.  IMO still not a verifiable reason.

Agreed. And what about more large-scale vendors? If people want to keep individuals who hand make every wig to themselves, that's reasonable, but what about vendors with websites that even encourage orders of like 20 pieces? They obviously have the means to do lots of orders and keep up quality. 

Every time I'm about to place an order, I'm lucky to run into a thread that warns against a given vendor's customer service or product or what have you, where everyone throws in their bad experiences with the same vendor. Wouldn't a sticky with good vendors and known bad ones prevent people from continuing to patronize bad vendors?

I've heard some bad reviews about QD, but the first time I ordered I asked a lot of questions and the lady was very nice and answered all of them.  For me they are so helpful and want to make sure you receive exactly what you specified when placing the order.  I have purchased 4 units and they are all beautiful...even the one that's over a year old.Smile

Quality of hair starts  to go down because of supply and demand... that's why people don't share.
