India is simply ravishing indeed! Steamy, spicy and spiritual - India is a land that has delighted many
a traveler since the beginning of civilization. Indian women are blessed with hair that is held as
the most luxuriant in texture and feel across the globe. Everywhere you go in India, you will see women
with gorgeous, long, silky, voluminous hair that catches every ray of light to make it dance and vibrate in joy.
Most women in India use only natural vegan products for beauty care - ensuring that the hair is absolutely healthy and virgin.
Every year, well over 40 million devotees visit the temple in the town of Thirupati,
in the state of Andhra Pradesh which lies east of the BigLove Indian Hair Extensions factory.
On an average 65,000 devotees visit the temple every day, and on certain special days, the number
can surge well over the half a million mark! Over half of the devotees who visit the temple shave
their head and offer their hair in an act of sacrifice to Vishnu - the presiding deity in the temple.
The temple itself traces its routes to the 2nd century AD and remains in continuous worship.
Legend has it that a shepherd mistakenly hit the Lord on his head, making a portion of his scalp bald.
A princess noticed this bald spot, and feeling that such an attractive face should not have a bald spot,
she immediately cut a portion of her hair and offered it to the Lord. Ever since then, it is said
devotees who visit the temple "follow suit" and offer their hair in an act of self-sacrifice.
Today, over 1 tonne of hair is collected at the temple every day. Every bunch is carefully tied
individually at the top, making sure we at BigLove can produce the world's most beautiful and finest Indian hair
products that are single donor and cuticle aligned. The money that the temple makes is reinvested into
the community; funding free schools, food aid programs, free quality health care and other rural
development programs. This is hair that is sourced ethically and spreads BigLove!
