Hair extensions, what are the ethics?

To conceal thinning or hair loss, a lot of people turn to hair extensions, and even more popularly, to make their hair thick, and long.  Hair extensions and integrations are either artificial or natural.

Natural extensions as you may already know are shaved off other people’s heads. Whether or not those people are rightfully paid for their hair is highly disputed. For instance some  of that hair can be traced back to Indian hair sacrificing temples where women shave their heads as an act of religious sacrifice. What governs other sources may also not be ethical.

Some argue that one man’s junk is another mans treasure and therefore are not worried if respective and rightful compensation is paid. For others, ethics surrounding such issues are a little complicated and make it harder for one to want natural extensions.
