Many organizations accept donated hair from individuals, including Locks of Love, Wigs for Kids, Children with Hair Loss and Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program. Donated hair must be clean and at least 8 inches long. Chemically untreated hair is preferred.
Locks of Love provides hairpieces to disadvantaged children and young people who suffer from medical hair loss due to conditions such as alopecia areata, burns and cancer. Similarly, Wigs for Kids and Children with Hair Loss offer free hair replacement to children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and medical conditions. Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program provides free, natural-looking wigs to women with cancer. Each organization accepts donations through the mail from individuals or salon affiliates.
