Finally, after many months, the hair is gone. I sold it finally for $1000 to a lady in New Jersey who said it was "beautiful" when she got it.
It was a long road. Several men just wanted more and more pictures but wouldn't close the deal. One bought someone else's hair instead. One I found actively participating in hair fetish sites ("where is your hair now?" "In my lap." "Is it braided?" "No.") so I never got back to him.
So I went with half the original accepted offer, but to someone who just wanted the hair, who buys a lot, and who has a salon.
Hooray! It's gone.
