I used to be a huge fan of human hair extensions. The only difference was that I used to get the synthetic hair and that was okay until it started doing serious injustice to my hairline. The main reason I liked the extensions was because my hair doesn’t grow past a certain number of centimeters so at least with that I didn’t feel so bad after all for having not so long hair.
Eventually I chucked the synthetic hair and just round about that time that’s when the Brazilian/ Peruvian/ Virgin hair came along. I have no idea which is which but I do know it is expensive. I hear the minimum you can buy this hair that cascades down your back is a good $250. Please note that these are UNITED STATES DOLLARS. If that’s the minimum price I shudder to imagine what the maximum is! This is the reason why my hair game will never succeed in this lifetime. There is no way I am willing to part with that kind of money for hair alone. Mind you, you haven’t even included money you will pay the hairdresser or whatever other chemicals or sprays that need to be used to keep the hair looking flawless. The few women I have seen with this hair look absolutely gorgeous in it and the rest; well, I think they are either buying the imitation version of the hair or are perhaps not taking good care of it.
Chances of seeing me in this lifetime with Brazilian/ Peruvian/ Virgin hair are close to none because I simply can not afford it. It is way out of reach for me. If anyone ever offers to buy it for me they would be doing a huge mistake because I promise you I would sell it. (judge me all you like) The things that I could do with $250 between me and my daughter! I guess it’s also a growing up thing. You accept that some things will just miss you and that’s okay, we can’t possibly have everything we want in this life. I keep my hair short, saves me both time and money and I use the money for other constructive things and at the same time I stay very well in my financial lane.
For those who are rocking the human hair and doing a great job of it then well done ladies and keep doing what you’re doing! As for those who are not, I reserve the right to remain silent.
