“It is cheaper to come with your weaves than to buy in the salon because we have to make gain,” Adeleye said.
Proprietor of Hair Wizard salon, Chichi Uzoma, said most women’s preference for artificial hair was to attract attention of people.

According to her, artificial hair is also time-consuming as the wearer creates time to comb, brush and style it.
“The price is also astronomical because the least artificial hair can cost about N1,000 for one pack and one requires two packs to make a hair,” he said.
Chinazor listed the different types of artificial hairs to include Indian, Peruvian, Chocolate, Chinese, Premium, Darling Yaki, Remy, among others.
“Indian hair can go as high as N300, 000, while the cheapest one can be go for N35, 000; the Chinese hair can go as much as N8, 000 and N1, 000 for the cheapest one.

“I like to look good and because I am beautiful I will not allow economic crisis to affect my hair,’’ Besong said. (NAN)
