My grandmother died of liver cancer in July 2004. Before her death, she was in and out of the hospital all the time. The one thing I noticed is that she had a synthetic wig that she barely wore because she hated it. Ever since her death, I've been very passionate about Locks Of Love. What they do for children is amazing and I thought I should discuss this with you ladies. These children are suffering from Alopecia, Cancer, and other diseases. If you have 10 inches of hair, you can donate! Remember that you can always grow your hair back. Hair grows about 6 inches a year, so you'd gain it back in no time.


  • Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
  • Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist.
  • Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable.
  • Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable.
  • We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children’s hairpieces. We also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
  • Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches.
  • Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails.
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.
  • 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.
  • Please Note: Shorter hair will be separated from the ponytails and sold to offset the manufacturing costs. Although the shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces, it still greatly helps to reduce costs.
  • Gray hair will be accepted and sold to offset the manufacturing costs.
