People ask me very often why I get my hair from Hair Direct. Those of you who know me, know that I am not considered a "salesperson". Frankly, I've never been very good in that arena. Instead, I'm someone just like you who was desperately seeking a way to make my hair look good. You can read all about my search and how I ended up here in my blogs and on the message board at Hair Direct, but I'll spare you all of the details and give you my "Reader's Digest" version of why I settled here.
First of all, I love the hair. It's the highest quality I've ever seen.
Secondly, I love the support of the hair techs, the message boards and the blogs.
Thirdly, I respect the company and it's leadership.
Now let me be very clear. There are lots of companies you can buy hair from. Some of them charge crazy amounts of money for the same hair you can buy at HD. Matter of fact, today I found a site that charges women $7,800.00 for (1) ONE unit of Kosher hair. Some companies require contracts and still charge you over $2,000.00 per unit. Of course, there are companies that say they will charge you less...but are they really charging you less?
Well, I'm no rocket scientist and I didn't do so well in math, but I bet if we add up a few things here, you may be suprised. I researched one competitor to see how they stacked up in the cost department and here is what I found. At first glance, the cost seemed pretty reasonable.
$295.00 for a standard unit up to 6" in length (not too bad!)
But....there are no extras. The company doesn't provide any. You will get your hair, but just the standard hair unit. Matter of fact, the company doesn't even cut off the extra lace and you will have about 4 inches of lace to cut off the perimeter of the hair.
What are the extras you ask? Of course you don't know - neither did I - but now I sure do! Here are some extras a different company offers:
$60.00 for webcam consultation and help with order - it's free at HD and so are the phone calls and advice.
$50.00 for Knot bleaching - you get your hair without the knots bleached and then you have to send it in to another company to have your knots bleached - it's included with HD hair.
$35.00 and up for coloring (definitely much higher for highlights, etc.) - it's included with HD hair.
$34.00 and up for a haircut (definitely more for longer hair depending on the style) - it's included with HD hair.
$25.00 for sealing knots - it's included with HD hair.
Now, as I mentioned above, I've never been great at math, but since this is simple addition, I'm gonna' give it my best shot.
Umm...running out of fingers and toes...
That total is $499.00.
AND I would have had to sent my hair somewhere for all of those extras so my wait would have been longer. AND I don't know any hairdressers that would only charge me $34.00 for a cut and $35.00 for a color with highlights...so I tried to be very conservative.
So, you ask me why I get my hair from Hair Direct? Because I know it's the right place for me.
Kisses to my peeps!
