Where does the hair come from?

I often get asked about the origins of hair used in extensions an the mannequins  we use to practice hair cutting. It comes from India. Every year, millions of pounds of hair are given to the Lord Venkateswara at the Tirumala temple in South India. Chuda karma/chuda karana (Sanskrit for hair cutting or tonsuring) is a concept is that hair is a symbolic offering to the gods, representing a real sacrifice of beauty, and in return, are given blessings in proportion to their sacrifice. Indian hair is valued for its length an limited exposure to damaging products. The temple makes about 12 million in sales every year.
