How do they find all the human hair used to make “human hair” extensions and wigs?

Question by track runner: How do they find all the human hair used to make “human hair” extensions and wigs?
I personally love using hair extensions but it is really strange how almost every beauty supply store sells them but from whom are they getting all the hair. A friend questioned if the hair is removed form corpses just after they die. I have heard of people selling their hair but I can’t imagine that many people are selling their hair to get the great quantities that are sold everyday, all over the world.

Best answer:

    Many women in Asia and Latin American donate their hair to salons and hair extension companies. I heard that South Asian hair is the most versatile and it can be used for people with all hair types.

    They do not collect hair from corpses. That’s a ridiculous theory. Hahahaha. There are companies such as “Locks of Love” that collect hair. People who grow their hair out long & decide to chop a good amount off, often donate their hair to Locks of Love. Most cheap whigs & extensions are made from horse hair.
