I typically get my hair cut about once every year or two… I get it cut short, let it grow 8-10 inches, then donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which makes wigs for cancer survivors.
Today was the big day this year when I chopped my locks, so I took a before and after picture. The ladies at Lunatic Fringe Salon took great care of me, and were excited to hear the hair was being donated.
The steps are pretty simple for donation. Simply put your hair in a ponytail at the nape of your neck, make sure it is at least 8 inches, and chop just above the ponytail holder. Make sure that hair is not more than 5% gray, not color treated or bleached, and freshly washed (but completely dry).
Mail hair in a sealed plastic zip-loc bag to:
