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.
