What happens to all the hair donated at the temples in India?

Before the emergence of demand for hair extensions in the western countries, the temples in India used to burn all donated hair on a regular basis. However, as “temple hair” got recognized as the premium quality hair used for hair extensions, temples started selling the hair to the “hair collectors” through contracts and auctions. This led to the development of the next tier of “hair extensions’ industry, where the “temple hair” is cleaned, conditioned, sorted and bundled. Then hair pieces (such as keratin strands, wefts, wigs etc.) are manufactured so that the hair is suitable to support one of the many hair extension methods. Extensions manufacturing industry employs thousands of poor men and women in India and provides them with job and income.
