You Can Make A Difference with Hair Donation

Donating your hair is a simple way to make a huge difference in someone else’s life, and all it takes is growing your hair long enough to be able to cut 10 inches off. If you are ready to become a hair donor there are some things you should know before we cut your hair. There are a number of nonprofits that help create wigs and hairpieces for people suffering hair loss. Hair donation organizations like, ‘Locks of Love’,share the common goal of providing hair replacements to people who need them. The minimum length requirement needed for a hairpiece is 10 inches tip to tip. Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches, and curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches. Before donation, hair should be freshly washed, in its natural state, and free of styling products. Hair must be clean and dry. Wet hair will mold during shipping and will be thrown away.Hair that has been permed, color-treated, or highlighted is not usable due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. Temporary coloring or highlights that wash out are acceptable but must be completely washed out before cutting. Wrap all ponytails in one piece of tissue paper and seal in a plastic bag. When you have your hair cut for donation with me at the salon, I will provide you with the form you will include with your hair when sending it off to Locks of Love. This is such a meaningful gift that you can provide someone in need if you have the hair to share! It would be an honor to share in this experience with you.
