Be At Alert! Your 'Brazilian Hair' Might be Goat Hair

What we don't know won't kill us but what if we then discover, what happens?

According to a report by BBC, because of the increased costs of obtaining high-quality human hair, manufacturers in China have resorted to buying moderate quantities of real hair (which is often Chinese hair), and then mixing it with goat hair to save costs and to increase the volume of supply. 

Lily, a Chinese woman manufactures and sells wigs and other extensions was one of the people who made this revelation to BBC.
“We say it is Indian hair or Brazilian hair, but in fact it is normally Chinese hair or even goat hair. They never realize. This is the only way we can keep things cheap,” she said. She also stated that most of her customers are Africans.“We used to sell to Europe and America, but now nearly 100% of my clients are in Africa,” she said. The Africans are reportedly mostly Nigerians, Ghanaians, Congolese, South Africans, Angolans and Ugandans.
