ive found some hair on eBay (on an eBay shop) for hair for my extensions. they are considerably cheaper than in shops, they say they are good quality, grade a human hair. I'm unsure. Should I risk it? Has anyone bought hair online and it been ok?
It's pretty hard to colour match if you buy online so you may end up with extensions a different tone to your actual hair. If however, it's a colour you've used before and you know the reference or don't mind dying it then it may be worth a try.
Don't know where you are based but if you are in London, try Pak's Hair in Finsbury Park or some of the shops around Shepherd's Bush Market for cheap hair weaves/extensions/wigs etc.
If it's jet black then obviously matching won't be an issue. If the hair is cheap maybe it's worth taking a chance for this occasion and if it doesn't work out then don't use them again. Or, failing that, Pak's have a website that you can order from online. They are an afro hair supplier, like the ones you're used to buying from. All the hair and make up people down here use them so they are reputable and cheap.
Pay with paypal - if what they send is "significantly not as described" - ie anything other than human hair and jet black, in the measurements they say - you can send it back and get a refund regardless of their returns policy or lack thereof, and regardless of any hygeine issues - if they don't pay you back, Paypal will.
