Things to Know Before Selling
If you’ve never sold used
Your Product Images are Everything
It’s crucial to make sure that your used hair looks as good as possible. If it’s tangled and dirty-looking, no one will want it. So, take your time and give the hair a good wash, condition, and detangling session. If needed, we also recommend trimming away any obvious split-ends.
You may be surprised at how good the hair can look. Only then should you take pictures of it. Also, you should take a picture of the hair against a contrasting background.
If the hair is blonde, take a photo against a dark background so that potential buyers can see the hair clearly. Vice versa, if the hair is black, take the picture in front of a light background.
Your Used Hair Should Be in Good Condition
No one wants to buy trash. If you think that you’re used hair is no longer wearable, chances are you won’t find a buyer. So, if your hair has seen way better days and really belongs in the trash, maybe it’s best that you put it there.
If you’re not too keen on doing that, you could also donate your hair to a charitable organization that can recycle it and create a new hairpiece for someone in need. You can donate it to Wigs for Kids or The Wig Station.
Make Sure That the Hair Is Human Hair
Synthetic hair rarely holds its value after it’s been worn. So, if your hair is synthetic, it’s best to either recycle it or throw it away. Since synthetic hair doesn’t last very long in the first place, it won’t be of much value to anyone else after you’ve used it.
If your hair is human hair, that’s good. Since human hair comes from human donors, it can last quite a long time with proper care, so it may be of use to someone else even if you’ve got no use for it.
For human hair, it’s good to include as many details as possible in the product’s listing. For example, the original owner avoided heat styling (e.g., curling irons), maintained a smoke-free environment, or ate a healthy diet, those details would be good to include in the listing.
Be Flexible on the Price
The value of
So, if your main goal is to sell your hair, it’s best to keep the price negotiable whenever possible. That way, you can consider lesser offers vs. missing out on those who keep it moving because you’ve set the price higher than they’re willing to pay.
Don’t focus entirely on how much money you can make, but instead focus on generating interest and seeing how much people are willing to pay.
