When you buy anything in wholesale,you like to compare price from different suppliers.There are a lot of people are buying wholesale hair extensions from aliexpress.com,so is this website legit?Can you buy from the suppliers on this website?
The answer is Yes,but difficult.
Alibaba group built aliexpress on 2009 and its growing rapidly in the past a few years.Its full of Chinese vendors,ANY Chinese people could open a store on aliexpress,you do NOT need to have a company,you do NOT need to pay any fee to aliexpress,and you do NOT need any certificate to verify your business,this is makes you very difficult to tell which is a real factory supplier are selling good hair.
You could find everything you want on aliexpress,including”virgin hair”,and the price is unbeatable,since 2010,there are more and more customers from all over the world start buying hair on aliexpress:
This store sold 1565 orders for this particular” Brazilian virgin Hair”.
So what exactly is “virgin hair”?
I found the following explanation here:
The term virgin hair usually refers to hair that’s been untouched by chemical processes such as perms, relaxers, and dyes. It may also refer to hair that’s never had extensions, weaves, or other treatment which can cause damage to the cuticles. Virgin hair is sometimes considered to be hair that’s of an ideal quality, as it’s less likely to have split ends and a dull appearance caused by dryness. Virgin hair can also have a unique set of styling obstacles because it can be too soft or fine to control with styling products and secure in up-dos.
So this seller are selling”Virgin Hair” for 16inch at $120 for 3 pieces and FREE SHIPPING! Which means for 1 bundle” Virgin Hair” its only $40!
From my 5 years experience in hair industry,this is 100% impossible!
Know that 90% of the hair selling on aliexpress is NOT virgin hair,nor indian,Malaysian or Brazilian hair.Its just processed from Chinese hair.And its definitely not VIRGIN hair.
Why they are selling and label it as VIRGIN hair?
Because every sellers is selling this way,if you sell real VIRGIN hair,the price will be very expensive and very few customers will buy from this store,so you will never get good rankings on aliexpress,then your business will die.
So is there any good vendors are selling VIRGIN hair?
Yes,there might be,but its really hard to find.
So why people are buying from aliexpress?
- Because the price is so cheap.
- Not every customer know the difference between processed hair and virgin hair.
So if you really want to buy hair wholesale from aliexpress.com,you need to know what you are looking for:
Customer A From Dominica: I just want to buy cheap BUT good hair,I do not care if it’s virgin hair or not.
My advice: Yes,Just buy from aliexpress.
Customer B from US: I need 100% true VIRGIN hair,100% unprocessed,long lasting,tangle free.
My advice: Take your time to choose good vendors,and place sample orders from different vendors,do not buy from too cheap ones.
When buying from aliexpress,what should be aware of:
1.You want to find store with more than 100 transactions and 98% above good feedbacks,its recommended that you check the details of sellers’ feedbacks.
2.Only buy hair from vendors supports fast and secure shipping methods like DHL,UPS or Fedex.
3.Ask them your questions before you buy,and see how they reply.
