Chinese hair extensions, wigs and weaves manufacturers add a mixture of goat hair, human hair and synthetic hair to lower costs.
In a BBC article, “The salons that hope you can't tell goats and humans apart,“ by  Sam Piranty, Chinese manufacturers of hair extensions, wigs and weaves are now adding mixture of human hair, synthetic and goat hair to lower costs. To make business profitable, they are also using fake scales when weighing out hair to customers and buy a

 

mixture of human hair and synthetic or goat hair.

According to the article:

"It's good business for me, but the problem is we pay more for the hair now, as living and production costs in China are higher now."

“We say it is Indian hair or Brazilian hair, but in fact it is normally Chinese hair or even goat hair. They never realize. This is the only way we can keep things cheap," she says, adding that her customers always drive a hard bargain.”
