Thinking about donating your long locks for a great cause? What an amazing idea! Check out the list below to see if your hair can be submitted.

Guidelines for Acceptable Donations:

  • Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable
  • Hair cut years ago is useable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid
  • Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not useable. If unsure, ask your stylist
  • Hair that is swept off of the floor is not useable
  • Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not useable
  • Layered hair is acceptable if the longest lair is 10 inches
  • Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches
  • Hair that is 6 – 10 inches in length will be accepted and sold at fair market value to offset the manufacturing costs
  • Gray hair will be accepted and sold at fair market value to offset the manufacturing costs


HOW TO DONATE

  • 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece
  • Hair must be in a ponytail or braid before it is cut
  • Hair must be clean and completely dry before it is mailed in
  • Place the ponytail or braid inside of a plastic bag, and then inside of a padded envelope
  • Fill out the hair donation form, or write your name and address on a separate sheet of paper and include inside the envelope
