This invisible braids service cost $150 labor. The market value for the human hair (Janet) is $54.99 per pack. Two packs of hair required. I cut and styled the hair myself. (Hairstylist: Benita Blocker)
The price of commercial human hair is skyrocketing!
I just had invisible braids done. Luckily, I had left over human braiding hair which I paid $26.99 per pack. I found out that today's market price for the same pack of hair is $54.99. The price of hair has doubled in 10 years.
There are a few things in my mind that has doubled in ten years: gasoline for the car, human hair, paper products and food?
I think the demand for commercial human hair is much larger than the supply. Either people are going to be forced to buy less quality hair or GROW their own!
I suggest that people invest more into higher quality hair products; learn to be patient with the roller sets, and keep it simple. These tips will keep the length on your hair!
For the smart investor, I suggest stocking up on high quality 100% human hair and hold on to it for about 5 years. You may double your money if you can find a buyer.
It is like diamonds. They are worth a lot of money to somebody. You just have to find the right somebody.
