Hair loss during cancer treatment can be an emotional and difficult step in recovery. Our hair donation drives are aimed at making the struggle a little easier by providing quality checked, real-hair wigs for patients experiencing hair loss. Anyone can donate as long as the following steps are followed:
Grow your hair: Ideal length of the hair is 12-14 inches. Shorter hair of minimum 10 inches can be donated. Coloured hair can also be donated.
Wash and dry your hair. After you wash your hair, don’t use any hair products. Hair that’s donated must be completely dry before it is packed and sent.
Prepare for the cut. Bring a ruler, hair tie, and a resealable plastic bag/ziplock.
The cut: After washing and drying your hair, tie a rubber band right below the level you want to cut at. Measure and check the length of your hair from the rubber band. If you have a lot of volume you can even plait your hair. Cut the pony tail/ plait and put it in a ziplock.
We directly send the hair to our wig manufacturer. Please feel free to reach out to us for any questions.
