Be the Change You Wish to See in the World

I often wish people would help others out more. A few weeks ago, my cancer survivor hero mom and I did something that we hope will help others. We cut over 28" of our hair to donate to Locks of Love

If you have long hair and are thinking of cutting it, perhaps you too should consider donating it. The guidelines for donating to Locks of Love are:
  • Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
  • Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable.  If unsure, ask your stylist. We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. **If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is fine to donate.
  • Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it is not bundled in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. If shaving your head, first divide hair into multiple ponytails to cut off.
  • We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children’s hairpieces. We also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
  • Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. 
  • Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails.
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.
  • 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.
 *There are also other organizations such as Wigs for Kids and Pantene Beautiful Lengths, but their requirements vary.  
If you happen to donate your hair, let me know!
