Is selling or donating my hair worthwhile, or should I just get a damn haircut like normal people?
I need a haircut. It's been about a year. My hair is longer right now than it's ever been in my life, to the point that it's starting to get annoying to deal with. When I cut it, I will be going significantly shorter.
My hair is very straight, healthy, un-treated with chemicals, and about 20 inches long from scalp to ends.
Is it worth selling or donating? How convenient is this to do? What's the going rate? If you've sold or donated your hair, would you do it again?
Can I consider my hair a valuable material resource, or is the era of Fantine and Jo March firmly behind us?
I googled this and found a couple of websites that trade in human hair (for example Hairwork
) and some content-farm articles that didn't instill a lot of confidence.
