Women in Venezuela Are Going To (& Cutting Off) Great Lengths

The economic situation in Venezuela has become so dire that Venezuelan women are cutting off their hair and selling it across the border in Colombia where it will be sold as hair extensions.

The price for their hair? Only $20.

These women feel the need to do this to buy basic necessities and to support their families, and in some cases to afford necessary medicine. Venezuela’s inflation rate is now the highest in the world, and according to Reuters, about 200 women a day are now trying to earn money this way.
