Locks of Love

Category: Random bulletins from my brain | Posted: Sat Apr 22, 2006 10:34 pm

I finally did it. After letting my hair grow for roughly six years I decided it was time to get it cut off. It was hot, took too long to take care of and I was tired of it trying to strangle me in my sleep.

The Locks of Love organization uses human hair to make wigs for kids who have lost theirs because of treatment for cancer. I found a local Fanstastic Sam's hair salon that is one of their sponsors and went this morning. My daughter had also let hers grow for about the same length of time so she went too.

The minimum length they will take is 12" even tho their website still says 10". Amanda gave them almost 20" and I gave them 16".

It really is a win-win deal, they got two more hanks of hair for the kids and we got free haircuts.

I'm really glad to hear you and your daughter donated your hair!! That's a real good thing to do for the little kiddos!! I have hair to my waist, but can't donate it because I color my hair to cover the gray!! It must be virgin hair! BTW John would probably cry if I cut it,lots of heavy pouting anyway!!LOL!

Actually it doesn't have to be virgin hair, mine is colored too to cover the gray. they will even take gray hair.
Any hair they get that is not appropriate for childrens wigs, they sell to other wig makers...that money helps defray some of their expenses.
Also, it doesn't matter who cuts the hair as long as it is kept in a ponytail, you can mail it to them yourself. The details are on the Locksoflove.org website.

Never heard of donating hair before but know that I think about it it makes perfect sense. Great idea. Helping someone out and a free haircut. Win Win!
