What better way to make some extra money during a lousy economy than by selling something that costs absolutely no money to produce... like, say, your own hair? The Hair Trader helps people do just that, offering an online forum for people to buy and sell their hair. The most desirable is "virgin" hair, which means non-chemically altered in any way. Asking prices go up to $5000.
While there are some enviable heads of hair on the site, I am unsure about how I feel about this in general. The idealist in me wishes they would donate all this gorgeous hair to Locks of Love. But I realize not everyone's financial situation allows for the luxury of charitable donations. What do you think? Would you ever sell your hair?
