We know the best quality hair extensions and wigs are made from human hair, but how many of us have actually questioned where that hair came from?
Who owned this hair before me? What were their circumstances? Were they treated fairly?
On a series called, Shady, produced by Refinery29, episode The Truth About Where Hair Extensions Come From takes its audience underground to a world of human hair trafficking.
Inside the episode we witness a mix of horrifying stories of women having their hair stolen at gunpoint, taken for free as part of a 'spiritual offering' or being paid next to nothing for them, as well as those hair dealers who are doing things ethically and changing people's lives as a result.
Watch the episode here...it's truly eye opening!
