Locks of Love

This year I've lost a couple of gfriends to cancer. There's not much a person can do when the deadly disease strikes. We feel so helpless. But there's one thing we can do. We can donate: either our time, our money or . . . even our hair. So, I did.

I had ten inches, just enough, when it was stretched out. In a braid it seemed so much shorter.

Locks of Love is a wonderful way to give something back. There are a few questions you might have if you're thinking about donating your hair.

A few of the questions might be:

1) Can you donate colored hair?

Answer: Yes, it just can't be bleached.

2) Can you donate gray hair?

Answer: Yes.

3) How long does the hair have to be?
Answer: 10 inches for it to be used for a wig

4) Can you donate curly hair?

Answer: Yes, it just needs to be 10 inches long when it's straightened.

5) If you don't have 10 inches to donate can shorter lengths be used?

Answer: Yes.

6) Does the hair need to be in a ponytail or braid?

Answer: Yes
