OVERSEA vs DOMESTIC Hair Supplier: Which one is better for you?
Hair business, a complicated business that all sellers do the best to maximize the profits when buying hair from oversea or domestic suppliers. However, have you chose the correct supplier for yourself?
I have met thousands of buyers who said that they have been buying hair from suppliers in their own countries for years without knowing of overseas suppliers.
As an oversea hair seller with 5 years of experience, I can not stand witnessing my customers choosing the wrong path. In this article, I will distinguish between national and international suppliers so you will never make mistakes anymore.
1.Oversea hair supplier.
Oversea hair suppliers are usually hair factories that produce hair with huge quantity and supply hair for hair sellers all around the world.
They are mostly from Vietnam, China, and India. Why? Because these are 3 main hair manufacturing countries. They are the true root of all human hair distributed internationally. International hair suppliers only work in the B2B (Business to Business) model. One example of an oversea hair supplier is K-HAIR factory, one of the leading hair wholesale factories in Vietnam.

2. Domestic hair supplier.
I guess you all have known what are domestic hair suppliers. They are hair wholesalers who import hair from the oversea hair suppliers and sell them to other hair sellers or sometimes hair users. Basically, they are resellers.
Apart from oversea suppliers, they come from every country in the world. Wherever there are hair users, there are domestic hair suppliers. These national hair suppliers work both in the B2B and B2C (Business to Customer) model.
3. Comparison: Pros and Cons
3.1. Prices – Oversea or Domestic.
Undoubtedly, overseas hair suppliers are the source of hair, which is the reason why their prices will be the cheapest, and they are often wholesale prices. On the other hand, domestic hair suppliers will definitely have much higher prices because they don’t produce hair after all.
However, there is still a problem, which is the shipping fee that you need to consider carefully. If you are going to buy small quantities of hair about 1-2 bundles, you should buy from national hair suppliers because the shipping fee will be relatively high comparing to the total order. Additionally, oversea hair suppliers may not allow you to buy small quantities for the reason that they are selling hair with wholesale prices. Therefore, international hair supplier will earn little or even no profits.
3.2. Time for hair.
In order to receive hair from oversea suppliers, you will have to wait for manufacturing time and shipping time. Some may ask: “Why don’t hair factories stock hair?”. The fact is that stocking hair will make the hair dry, reducing the quality of the hair. The factories just want to provide you the best quality status of their products.
On the contrary, national hair wholesalers import hair and keep it in stock. If you order regular types of hair from them, your order will immediately come to you or you can go to their store to get it by yourself.
In this case, you can consider your client requesting time. If the order is not so urgent, you know where to buy hair.
3.3. Trust-worthy. Oversea vs Domestic
Obviously, national hair suppliers are more trust-worthy because you can directly come to them and pick the hair by yourself. Therefore, the quality and security of your order are secured. Plus, it will be easier for warranty if there is any trouble.
After all, What should I choose?
The answer is based on the different situations that you are facing. However, as an expert, I advise you to buy hair from oversea hair suppliers. Basically, the key to becoming successful in business is prices. You will save a lot of money if you buy hair internationally from real hair manufacturers. To other factors, they can be managed if you have established long-term relationships with your oversea suppliers. It may be risky. However, making business is already risky. The more you risk, the more profit you will get.
