There has been a steady increase in thefts, burglaries, assaults and even death all in the name of expensive Remy hair extensions. Thieves are bypassing flat screen TVs, cash registers and safes to outsmart motion detectors from top of the line security systems all to get to the hair weave stocked in stores and salons. Store owners are installing bullet proof glass, steel security bars and security guards all in the name of keeping their merchandise safe. So my question is, WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO? In what level of Dante’s inferno has it become ok to assault or kill someone over fake hair?
Stolen hair is being sold to people on the street out of car trunks, to stylists who work out of their homes and to the same types of beauty salons and supply shops that are being robbed often for a quarter of the retail cost (and sometimes less).
I overheard someone say “It’s just a sign of the times. With more profit comes more violence.” Hold on, I need to wipe the vomit off the floor and splash my face with cold water as I’m truly unable to process this information.
