Know the Types of Weavon

Before embarking on the business you must know what type of weavon you want to sell and what is in demand,without a demand you cant have a business.

There are two types of hair,Human hair and Synthetic hair.Human hair as the name implies is real human hair.

It is gotten from around the world mostly indian,Brazilian and peruvian.This type of hair is in high demand due to its soft texture and durability.

Human hair can be curled,straightened, coloured e.t.c its basically human hair.Due to its versatile nature this human hair is more expensive than the synthetic hair.

The price depends on the length. Weavons generally come in different colours and lengths,so it would be good to make sure you have many colours and lengths for customers to choose from.

Synthetic hair on the other hand is made of fine plastic fiber,its cheaper than the human hair and is equally in demand.

Synthetic hair is normally pre-styled so it cant be modified i.e straightened or curled.Some synthetic hair can withstand a little amount of heat but the ends of the hair will turn brittle with time.

Synthetic hair can be worn for between two to three weeks before showing signs of distress.

It would be a good idea to stock a mixture of both to cater to customers that have a preference for either human or synthetic hair.

When stocking it would be good to do a research on the preference of customers in your location to know which type of hair will be stocked and in what quantity.

You must educate your self on types of weavons for you to be able to meet the needs of your customer.

      You don’t need a manufacturing company with a startup capital of 200k. With that amount, all you need is to contact a major dealer in your location that sells cheaper than in the general market. Buy the products from them and resell to other to make profit. Success!

      Hello Linus Adino, 200k can start this business if you start a simple buying and selling of weavon. When you increase your capital base, you can then import most of them from abroad. Success!
