Sell Your Hair

Do you have beautiful long hair?

Did you know you can sell your beautiful long hair for $100s, even $1000s?

Yes, you can! Here's how...

What Is Virgin Hair?

"Virgin Hair" is worth up to 40% more than non-virgin hair, according to the HairSellon hair price calculator.

Virgin hair is hair that:

  • has not been chemically treated: dyed, bleached or colored
  • has not been straightened, curled, ironed, blow dried, permed, etc.
  • has undamaged hair cuticles

If your hair has undergone any of those treatments in the past but has grown out (typically takes several years), your hair can qualify as virgin Hair.

However, the highest quality virgin hair should never have been subjected to the above treatments, and:

  • not been exposed to drugs, cigarette smoke, etc.
  • not had work done, such as extensions or weaves which can damage hair
  • not been subjected to any unnatural treatments
  • the hair cuticles must been intact, and run consistently in the same direction

How Much Is Your Hair Worth?

How much your hair is worth depends on:

  • whether your hair can be classified as "virgin Hair"
  • length, thickness/weight, and color of your hair
  • quality of your hair - hair that has not been dyed, subjected to ironing/curling, or other treatments is worth much more
  • the market at the time
  • the competition
