Tanzania Imposes Taxes On Wigs And Hair Extensions

Published by:

Many people prefer to change their hair style every now and then because it makes them feel good about themselves. They opt for hair extensions in Bondi because it feels perfect and liberating. However, in Tanzania, the government decided to impose taxes on wigs and hair extensions so that women will keep their hair natural.

When Tanzania Finance Minister Philip Mpango announced the tax on wigs and hair extensions in parliament, many MP’s applauded in approval. On the other hand, there is also public outrage because it seems that women are being punished for wanting to improve their appearance through wigs and hair extensions. While it is true that traditional values must be upheld, society is changing.

Mr. Mpango announced 25% tax on imported wigs and hair extensions and 10% tax on those that have been produced locally. The goal of the taxes is to increase government revenue. The cheapest wigs can be purchased for $4 but there are also wigs that sell for $130.

AnnasatasiaSigera, a well known importer of wigs in Tanzania asked why the government chose wigs to be taxed when there are so many products that should be taxed. Women love artificial hair. In fact, a woman who wants to remain anonymous told BBC that she spends $450 on hair extensions.

Women think that the tax is a punishment for trying to look good. Aristotle Mwamtobe who runs a popular hair salon said that the tax can affect relationships. Both local and imported wigs can become too expensive for their female customers. If women will cut their hair, it can lead to divorcés because men prefer their wives to have long hair. Women can really look good in wigs.

Meanwhile, taxes on chocolates, biscuits, imported coolers and other equipment that farmers use were also announced by the Finance Minister.

Women can get fuller and longer hair through hair extensions in Bondi that uses 100% human hair. There are natural-looking hair extensions with high quality and can be custom-made to create a right fit. When the hair is down, the hair extensions are completely undetectable. Those who want to enhance their looks for a party or a date can opt for the temporary hair extensions that can be removed easily.

According to Australia Post, their goal is to find out how the vehicle will operate when used in various terrains. The plan is for the electric vehicles to be added on the existing fleet of electric vehicles already in use by the courier.
