When do you accept hair donations?
We accept hair donations from May through September. Children with Hair Loss accepts
donations all year long. 
*This does not apply to patients wanting to use their own hair for a halo wig.
 
What is the minimum length requirement for donating hair?
We can accept hair donations that are 10 inches (before braiding) or longer.
Longer is always better! 

Do you accept color treated hair?
Yes! We can accept color treated hair as long as it is healthy and undamaged.

Can I drop off my hair donation in person?
No. We do not have an office location to accept donations. We only have a mailing address.

Can I find out who receives my hair donation?
No. Since our recipients are minors and due to patient privacy, we cannot share that information.

Is there somewhere I can go for a free haircut if I'm donating my hair?
Not at this time. But any stylist should be able to follow the simple directions for cutting the hair properly.

We do hold free haircutting parties occasionally, so follow us on social media to stay informed of these events!

Do you accept gray hair?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept gray hair. If you would like to color treat your gray hair before donating, we can accept color treated hair. Children with Hair Loss is another organization that accepts gray hair.

How will I know my hair donation has been received?
If you are concerned about your hair donation reaching us, please send it with a tracking number via UPS or Priority Mail. If you would like to know that your donation has been received, please include your name and a legible email address. We acknowledge hair donations on a monthly basis, as time allows. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
