lovelydyedlocks: Have you ever donated your hair to make a wig for someone with medical hair loss? There are three main non-profit organizations in the U.S. and Canada that make hair pieces for people with medical hair loss. They all have different hair donation requirements and their wigs go to different people (e.g. Locks of Love only makes wigs for minors under 21).   All the organizations share the below requirements: Your hair must be donated in a ponytail or braid. The ponytail must measure the minimum required length from one end to the other. Hair must be clean and dry, placed in a plastic bag and sent by mail. Wigs For Kids Hair must be at least 12 inches long (if curly, it can be pulled straight to measure 10 inches) Do NOT accept colored, highlighted, bleached or permed hair Wigs are donated to children under 18 Wigs donated due to hair loss from chemotherapy, ratiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical reasons  More info here Locks of Love Hair must be at least 10 inches long (if curly, it can be pulled straight to measure 10 inches) Accept colored or permed but not BLEACHED (highlights) Wigs are donated to children under 21 Wigs donated due to hair loss from the following: Alopecia, Cancer, Ectodermal Dysplasia-A, Loose Anagen Syndrome, Trichotillomania, Telogen Effluvium, and Trauma Hair that can’t be used will be sold to offset manufacturing costs Print out donation form here Pantene Beautiful Lengths Hair must be at least 8 inches long Do NOT accept chemically treated hair (bleach, dye, perm, highlights, chemically straightened) Do NOT accept hair that is over 5% grey Wigs donated to women of all ages Wigs donated to women with hair loss due to cancer treatment Partnership with the American Cancer Society More info here cut a few ponytails off some lovely people whove donated. :)Debra Weite Hair and Makeup
