You watch your purse, your wallet, and your jewels to make sure nobody steals them. For some women with long hair in Maracaibo, the second largest city in Venezuela, they have to watch their hair! There are gangs of thieves stealing women’s hair. The thieves grab the ladies’ hair, bring out a pair of scissors, and snip it off.  The stolen hair is used for hair extension products.
