Exporting Human Hair

Human hair export is a Rs 200 crore business in India today. Of this, Gupta Enterprises, Chennai alone accounts for Rs 44 crore a year. “Hair that’s thrown out is waste, hair that is collected is money,” says Gupta.The waste hair is converted into wigs and toupees

Gupta’s father started off in the late 1960s by supplying hair to exporters, then set up his own unit in Eluru in Andhra Pradesh a decade later. His company has since bagged export awards for 14 years.

Apart from barber cuttings and cut hair from temples( Tirupati temple alone sells a staggering Rs 20 crore worth annually), a large portion of it comes from households across India, collected by rag-pickers and garbage collectors, to Eluru.

Here it is sorted into lengths and colours, cleaned, washed and dried, and then shipped out in containers. Each month, 30-35 tonnes of hair is exported to 32 countries. China is the biggest buyer.

    We can supply unlimited quantity of human hair (cuttings from barber shops) regularly for export. First of all, we will collect the product from one district and supply you for three months. If it is profitable, we will invest more money and collect from all districts of Kerala against an agreement with All Kerala Barbers association for long term.
    We, already started discussions with the Association for implementing the project in Trichur District. Kindly note, at present, we can supply the material, without removing any thing from the hair as it is collected from barber shops. Being we are new in this business, kindly give us some time to study to sort out the waste from the product.
    We have a strong network and direct business operations in Gulf countries. In future, we can collect the product from Gulf countries to increase the supply quantity.

    Kindly send us your comments on the above text.
