What is your response to people feeling that using Afro hair in this manner is to "intimate."?
Hi Vwilliams92. Thank you for your question. Using the product as insulation in walls or placed under sod for lawns would not be considered "intimate" or gross. On the other hand, hair (weaves) purchased from other cultures is of high demand. Hair is installed, which is close to the face can be considered intimate. I spent many years in cosmetology, its a lucrative industry.
Wool that is removed from sheep and worn as clothing on the body can be considered intimate. Wool is chemically treated because sheep live outdoors, defecate on themselves, and the fleece contain lice. Personally I don't have an issue wearing a wool coat. (At this point, its clean)
No strong chemicals are needed for processing the product. I have not yet met anyone that considers Afro hair gross. Forsee's technique to improve soil, and recycle fertilizer is not gross, especially if you compare the fact in agriculture chicken, or cow manure is commonly used as fertilizer.
