Reality & Society: History of Scalping People for Hair-Isaiah 3:16-24
People of all skin tones use human hair in weaves, extensions and wigs. Living in St.Louis with a beauty supply on every corner got me wondering where all this human authentic hair comes from. When we oppress others in the name of anything, in this case beauty, we are no better than those who kill and destroy. People say the want equality, inclusion, civil liberty, but how can you continue to use products like real human hair knowing there was a horrific price paid in order to get that hair? You Cannot Remain a hypocrite and claim to love The Lord God Almighty/Abba Yah.
Hypocrisy is defined as-the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.
This hair you buy is sacrificed to other gods. Purchasing this hair is you paying tribute and bowing down to the gods in which the sacrifice/scalping was done and you are serving them by purchasing the hair.
And God spake all these words, saying,
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
This sermon is going to tell you exactly what happens when women and children are scalped for your beauty needs and how you cannot be a Real Child of Yah while participating in this cruel act of violence. This sermon will also discuss how to grow your natural hair by changing your diet and how you live.
16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts.
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
21 The rings, and nose jewels,
22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. 2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways.

9 Insane Facts About the Human Hair Used In Wigs and Extensions-Cosmopolitan
2. The majority of human hair used in wigs and extensions comes from India and China. Religious people make pilgrimages to temples such as the Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala, India, where they shave/tonsure their heads in a ritual of devotion. Hundreds of barbers shave a new person's head every five minutes, leaving "bloody scalps and hair balls" all over the ground. The temple takes these strands, which can get up to 30 inches long, and sells them at auction.
3. Hair from the temple can cost $700 a pound, but when it gets purchased at auction, it's not really in great shape. "Sweat, blood, and lice" can be found in the hair, which ends up in warehouses that "reek of mildew and fungus."
8. People buying wigs aren't too concerned about the ethics of where wigs come from or how they're made. Though most human hair comes from India and China, only a fraction of that hair comes from the temples. "Where the rest comes from, we have no idea," a regional minister for textiles and commerce in India told The Guardian in 2006. Still, the mysterious origins of all that hair don't bother consumers — they just want to know that it's hygienic.
The hair you are buying is hair sacrificed to other gods and this alone is a slap in Abba Yah's Face.
Indian Sacrifices Keep the West Supplied With Hair- thenationalnews.com
Hair is offered as a sacrifice to the hundreds of thousands of gods in the Hindu pantheon for reasons as diverse as seeking to ward off ill-health to wanting to bring luck and fortune.
The practice is common in southern India, especially at temples in Tamil Nadu state, where people from all over the country come to be shaved.
Indian women like Anandi Perumalswamy are the mainstay of the industry, even if their lives are a world away from the fancy salons in the United States and Europe, where demand for hair extensions is highest.
"Our favourite god is Lord Muruga. We had lots of problems, like debt, many types of problems," said Perumalswamy, a 45-year-old mother of two.
"I had prayed for my son to get married. I had promised that if he gets married, then I would offer my hair."
The marriage took place a few months ago and so she came to Tiruttani to uphold her part of the bargain
Real Indian Temple Hair -indianhair.net
The temple town Tirupathi, in South India is the largest pilgrimage spot where thousands of devotees practice tonsure daily. The concept of the Hindus who practice this is that they are paying tribute to the God Lord Balaji for the blessings he may have bestowed upon them. It is their way of showing their gratitude. This practice is also symbolic of sacrifice of material beauty and false-ego by one.

Selling for Survival in Cambodia-yahoo.com
"Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is dusty, developing and rife with suffering, yet culturally rich and bustling. In this desperately poor country, women sell their bodies, their hair and sometimes their daughters to put food on the table. Even my hotel was a reminder of the desperate circumstances here, with a sign that read, ‘Please do not participate in the sex trade.’ One Cambodian woman told me, ‘I’ll sell my hair before my body to feed my family. My hair grows back.’
About 45 miles outside the city, I visited a village where women cut hair to be sold as extensions. There were about 80 families with little to no food, clothes or electricity. I saw only one man, and when I asked him to show me his wife, he responded by pointing to a group of women. Women between the ages of 18 and 60 lined up to sell their hair (the women made it very clear they don’t cut the young girls’ hair), receiving 20,000 to 33,000 riel (about $5 to $8) in exchange. Every four to six months, a collector comes to the village to purchase the hair.
Traders Take Hair- abc.net.au
But sometimes traders simply take hair, whether that means forcibly shaving it from the heads of Russian prisoners or stealing it in places as innocuous as shopping centres.
"I was held down by a gang of men who hacked at my hair," one young Indian woman told The Observer.
"I know other women who have been blackmailed and threatened to shave their own heads, in some cases their husbands have received money for their hair and ordered their wives to have their heads shaved."
A Ukrainian Woman's Personal Story- truthdig.com
On average, Ukrainian women earn less than $150 a month, and they are vulnerable to exploitation by capitalists who cash in on desperation. (It is no surprise that another booming industry in Ukraine is “mail order brides.”) “We buy hair for the highest price,” reads an advertisement on a lamppost on a street of run-down apartment buildings on the outskirts of Kiev. “The haircut is for free.”
Julia Stets is a freelance wig maker and hairstylist working from her apartment in suburban Kiev. Stets at one time bought hair from China but in recent years has switched to synthetic hair, which she tells me is of high quality and “very authentic” looking. I asked to interview Stets about her experience working with human hair, but soon she was recounting a story from her childhood in the rural western part of the city.
“I faced hair traders in my childhood,” Stets said. “In 1993, when I was 13, the broker gave me $7 for my hair, and it was a painful experience.
“He had promised me $50 but told me my hair was bad quality, and less than he had thought, despite my hair being thick and very long,” she said. “There were a lot of girls they tricked like that—it was like a fraud.”
The broker did not ask Stets’ parents for permission before cutting her hair, and she said he treated her “like garbage. He saw I needed money, and just exploited me.”
“This happens in rural China, just the same,” said Stets, who, on discovering this decided to stop working with human hair. “There are young women who want to find some money to study or get their own life—and here comes the businessman, so they sell what they can of themselves.”
Inside the hidden hair factories- abc.net.au
Little is known about the conditions for the workers who process and bundle the hair, but reports suggest they're not receiving a fair wage.
Journalists from the New Zealand Herald snuck inside hair factories in Taihe, China and found "gated communities" that smell of "stagnant peroxide".
"More than 1,000 workers are inside — some paid as little as $2 an hour and nearly all female. They sit on small, wooden stools combing the hair through nails, soaking it in conditioner and dyeing it in metal barrels."
Gangs Targeting Women for Hair- truthdig.com
In 2013, police in the Venezuelan city of Maracaibo hunted a gang of thieves who were targeting woman for their long hair. The “piranha gang” hacked women’s hair right off their heads. Sometimes they had guns.In 2006, The Guardian reported that in India, men were forcing their wives and children to sell their hair and hair brokers were holding children down and cutting off their hair.
Last year in East Jerusalem, I spoke with a Palestinian woman who told me she had had her hair “stolen” by a gang of young men when she was 8 years old. She assumed that her hair had gone to make wigs for Haredi (an orthodox Jewish sect) women, a highly profitable business in parts of the Middle East.
Forced Child Labor-CNN
Until earlier this year, Hetian Haolin had been a major supplier of synthetic hair products to a Texas-based company called I&I Hair. Its main product, EZBraid, is the top-selling hair braid at BPolished.
“When I found out about the forced labor, honestly I was shocked,” Watkins says. “I don't want to participate or support anything that goes against what I personally believe in.”
I&I Hair stopped shipping from Hetian Haolin in early 2020, when the company learned about the allegations of forced labor.
CNN has documented multiple testimonies of people who escaped from the camps, including women who say they were tortured, sexually assaulted, and forced to undergo sterilization procedures – all accusations which China has denied. Leaked Chinese documents seen by CNN show that people can be sent to a camp for perceived infractions which range from wearing a headscarf or a long beard, holding a passport, or having too many children.
Former Xinjiang resident Yerzhan Kurman had moved to Kazakhstan with his family in 2015. He returned to visit his mother in 2018, but was then swiftly taken into a “political educational school.”
Another former Xinjiang resident, Gulzira Auelkhan, says she was also thrown in a camp when she returned to the region from Kazakhstan to visit her family in 2017.
“Cameras monitored us everywhere,” says Auelkhan, who is also ethnically Kazakh. “If we cried they would handcuff us, if we moved they would also handcuff us.”
“They would allow us to go to the toilet for two minutes only.” Auelkhan says. “If anyone exceeded that time, they would hit us with electric sticks.”
Auelkhan says the authorities told her she “came from a terrorist country,” and then they “cut my hair. Took my blood samples.”
Several other women have previously told CNN they had their hair forcibly removed during internment.
“They cut our hair off, made us bald,” says Gulbakhar Jalilova, an ethnic Uyghur from Kazakhstan now living in Istanbul after escaping the camp system. “Everything was gone. Nothing. I had long hair.”
The Exploitation of those who less fortunate than you needs to end. Needing to feel beautiful no matter the cost comes from indoctrination and the lack of self-esteem and self-worth. Trying to fit into what society tells you you should look like is a factor as well for you cannot love this world and Abba Yah at the same time.

The Best 14 Food To Grow Hair-healthline
Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth.
Eating adequate protein is important for hair growth because hair follicles are made of mostly protein. A lack of protein in the diet has been shown to promote hair loss (1Trusted Source).
Biotin is essential for the production of a hair protein called keratin, which is why biotin supplements are often marketed for hair growth. Research has also shown that consuming more biotin can help improve hair growth in people with a biotin deficiency (2).
However, biotin deficiencies are uncommon if you consume a balanced diet. There is little evidence to show healthy people benefit from consuming more biotin (3Trusted Source).
Eggs are also a great source of zinc, selenium and other hair-healthy nutrients. This makes them one of the best foods to consume for optimal hair health
Berries are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that may promote hair growth.
This includes vitamin C, which has strong antioxidant properties.
Antioxidants can help protect hair follicles against damage from harmful molecules called free radicals. These molecules exist naturally in the body and the environment (5Trusted Source, 6Trusted Source).
For example, 1 cup (144 grams) of strawberries provides an impressive 141% of your daily vitamin C needs (7).
Also, the body uses vitamin C to produce collagen, a protein that helps strengthen hair to prevent it from becoming brittle and breaking
Spinach is a healthy green vegetable that’s loaded with beneficial nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamins A and C, all of which may promote hair growth (11).
A cup (30 grams) of spinach provides up to 54% of your daily vitamin A needs (11).
Spinach is also a great plant-based source of iron, which is essential for hair growth. Iron helps red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body to fuel your metabolism and aid growth and repair (14Trusted Source).
Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene. The body converts this compound into vitamin A, which is linked to good hair health.
Research has shown that vitamin A promotes the production of sebum, which helps keep hair healthy.
What’s more, vitamin A could also speed up the rate of hair growth and encourage the growth of thicker hair, all while preventing other hair follicles from regressing
5 Foods To Avoid- naturallclub.com
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but even though diet ‘coke’ might be great for your weight, it’s not so good for your hair (it’s like, why can’t I have it all?) This is because diet drinks substitute real sugar for artificial sweeteners, specifically one named Aspartame. According to the FDA, aspartame can cause hair loss and thinning hair, but remember, only if consumed excessively. To avoid this chemical, always read the label carefully to consume the FDA approved quantity, and replace other artificial sweeteners with natural ones! (like honey)
“It is officially the year to stop stugar!” You’ve probably heard that countless times, but seriously, it is the year to stop sugar. The reason is very simple, YOUR HAIR is made out of PROTEIN. Your hair needs protein to grow and sugar hinders the absorption of protein. Just like you should steer clear of artificial sweeteners, you should also avoid eating foods that contain high sugar, like those starchy whites (white rice, white bread, white yam…)
This one should be most obvious but it is the one we avoid hearing. Anything that isn’t great for your health isn’t good for any part of your body. Those delicious greasy burgers/fries translate into greasy scalp, which can clog your pores and lead to hair loss. You don’t like clogged pores on your face, so why would you want that for your scalp, right? If that oily food is not sealing in moisture like your Pure Avocado Oil, tell it to keep its grease.
Its time to do what is right in Abba Yah's Eyes and not our own. Stop buying hair! Learn how to help those who are selling themselves to the demons destroying lives and keeping women in slavery. You cannot serve Abba Yah and continue to destroy women while crying for equality.
