Not sure....I only heard thru another customer.  This vendor was my favorite vendor of all times.  I don't have any recent experiences but I treasure all my hair I purchased/kept. LOL.

I don't think mine was sauced up Indian.  It was quite different than other Indian I had worn.  I realize that it can all look similar if the density/texture/luster/color is close.  I think CV are probably processing to achieve the "brazilian" texture.

I don't think it would be virgin anymore but I do think they would have cuticles aligned and the process is probably less damaging then say, kinky straight.  Although you can get "brazilian yaki" Brazilian light yaki, brazilian KS, etc.  which would be a double process, I suppose.  But they probably take single donor hair and process it lightly for the Brazilian texture.  I have no clue what the process would be though.Whatever it is makes the strands soft and light, not shiny and manageable yet not excessively silky.  Virgincurl.com seems to be one of the vendors that people speculate may be authentic South American hair, I think that's the one.

that was my thought. it seems hard to imagine brazilian women lining up to get their hair hacked off.

People will consider extremes for $$.  Brazil has a high poverty rate.  I think that large volumes of Brazilian hair is not likely however, I don't discount that a poor woman who is offered a decent amount of $$ wouldn't consider it.

I made a thread on this ...

To my understanding, virgin "Brazilian" hair is just run-of-the-mill Indian hair vendors have lightly processed (permed) to make it coarser and less shiny. Doing so, they create that perfect, un-shiny, soft - but not silky, holds a curl all day hair black women covet. I <3 EVERY install of this hair I've seen ... it's GORGEOUS and so believable.

The real deal (virgin hair shaved off a woman in Brazil) is VERY rare and likely to cost $100s/ounce. Your average sew-in requires 8oz or better, so do the math and then you'll see why most people ain't really walking around with AUTHENTIC Brazilian hair.

I have talked to suppliers in Brazil and the does exist and there is a market there for it. I was quote around $1,600 per kilo. They stream process the hair into various curly textures. i was told by one of the suppliers that their makert is becoming bigger due to all the interest of american women. So, yes its very expensive. I think I will just stick to Chinese and Indian hair for now.

That's only $35.28 per oz so that is aligned with the prices that are out there in the market (plus AV markup of course).  For example, an 8oz purchase would be $282 to buy and an AV retails it for $390 (+107.81) per install.  Not an outrageous price if it is good quality hair.
