‘The hair on my head’.
Women will always say the hair on their head is their own, whether natural, relaxed, hair extensions, weaves or even wigs. After all, as long as they’ve bought it, it’s theirs. But while for many women, hair is defined as their crowning glory, for women in India, the definition of hair is different. It is their ultimate sacrifice for health and wealth. The relationship between these 2 sets of women witnessed through a multibillion hair industry that sees shaved Indian hair sourced from temples, processed into hair extensions and weaves that cost as much as 70,000 shillings. Evelyn Wambui follows the story of hair from the heads of the women in the Indian subcontinent unaware of its worth…to those willing to pay the ultimate cost for good hair. Here’s the feature ‘The hair on my head’.
