Some organizations that buy human hair are Hairwork, BuyAndSellHair, SellHairstore, Online Hair Affair and HairSellOn. Individuals can earn anywhere between $20 and $2,000 selling their hair. The human hair must be at least 10 inches long, chemically untreated and properly packaged.
Human hair organizations purchase the hair and sell them to hair dressers and wig makers interested in making wigs and hair extensions. Individuals looking to sell hair post listings accompanied by pictures on the company's website.
Charitable organizations like Wigs for Kids, Locks of Love and The American Cancer Society accept human hair donations. These companies provide sick children with wigs to help boost their self confidence and morale.
