2. Where Does Human Hair Come From?

Black women have been wearing wigs for centuries and today the human hair trade is big business. Black women can spend hundreds of pounds on human hair wigs and weaves, but have you ever thought about where this hair comes from? In this episode Leanne explores the different ways that human hair is sourced, how ethical the hair trade is and which communities benefit the most from this industry. To explore this she speaks to Sandra Brown Pinnock who manufactures her own human hair extension range called XSandy’s as well as Professor Emma Tarlo whose research specialises in the trade of human hair.  Follow us on Instagram @coiledpodcast and use the hashtag #coiledpodcast to join the conversation on Twitter.  Hosted and Produced by Leanne Alie Twitter: @leannealie Instagram: @leannealie_ Assistant Produced by Sylvie Carlos Twitter: @sylvie_frizzy Instagram: @frizzandgo The theme music and closing music was composed by Ony Iroha Music credits:  Mirror Mirror by Diamond Ortiz  All other music was sourced from Uppbeat.io Learn more about your ad choices.
