We advise holding on to a small portion of your hair in the unlikely case of any issues/disagreement with buyers down the line.
Before cutting make sure your hair is brushed and aligned properly.
-Secure the hair with elastic hair bands and cut the hair in ponytail form if possible.
-Avoid disturbing the hair once cut, and package into an sealed bag/padded mailer to avoid any external dust or contaminants getting in.
-Send using a postal tracking number service so you have proof of postage and the buyer can track the delivery.
NEVER send your hair off to the buyer until the money is confirmed in your paypal account.
We also advise not to cut your hair off until you’ve received payment.

How Much is My Hair Worth?
The price of hair varies hugely and is dependent on the market at the time. It is graded by quality and length/weight. In terms of quality, highly cared for hair that hasn’t been dyed, or been subjected to ironing/curling or other treatments is worth much more.
Imperfections such as split ends would have to be cut off and the value will drop respectively, this is why accurate descriptions are so vital. One of the key factors in hair pricing is whether or not it can be classified as virgin hair, find out What is Virgin Hair?
We’ve recently launched a new tool called the Hair Price Calculator. This unique tool is designed to give you a personal quote for the value of your hair, taking the effort and confusement out of pricing.
Try out the Hair Calculator below. Remember; due to the individual nature of people’s hair, prices can only be estimates and often represent the maximum amount you could sell your hair for.
