If there was every a time and place to chop off your long luscious hair that
your husband adores and worships. This is the best way to do it.
Donate it to a child with cancer through www.locksoflove.org
I went to Great clips today with this plan in mind.
Here is my hair before it was cut
Here is me after
I have so much hair that we had to put it in 2 ponytails.
What a great cause.
I also found out that if you are cutting your hair for locks of love,
great clips won't charge you for the cut. So call your salon and ask if they also do this,
you never know they might support the cause too.
Here are the rules for donating.
- 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.
