Meghan shared with us, “I love that you don’t charge kids for their wigs and are very caring. I hope that my hair can bring a smile to a sweet child. I can’t wait to grow out my hair and cut it again, hopefully my daughter will be donating with me next time!” 

If you’re thinking of donating like, Meghan, here are our top three most asked questions for you: 

Are you wondering what the hair donation requirements are for Wigs for Kids? Here we cover some of the most commonly asked questions we receive, including where to donate hair and guidelines for how to donate your hair properly.

Q: How do I donate my hair? A: It is important that specific guidelines are followed when making a hair donation in order to ensure Wigs for Kids can accept and use your hair. Hair should be a minimum of 12 inches, clean and dry, and cannot be color treated or permed. For full instructions on how to cut and donate ponytails, click here.

Q: How long should I wait after I have dyed or highlighted my hair: A: We cannot accept hair that has been chemically processed – perms, color treated or highlights. Highlights that wash out are acceptable. Hair that has been chemically processed will not withstand the chemical processing to sanitize the hair. Coloring must have completely grown out and natural hair grown back before we are able to accept it for hair donation.Meghan Cash after donating her hair to Wigs For Kids

Q: Where can I get my hair cut for Wigs For Kids: A: We do not require certified specialists to cut ponytails for donating hair to Wigs for Kids; you may go to any salon you choose or you may cut the hair yourself. However, we do have a list of Hair Donation Specialists here. Check to see if there is a salon in your area, and if not, ask a local salon if they can accommodate you and encourage them to sign up to be an ambassador salon on our website. If you are looking for a free or discount haircut, please call the salon in advance to see if they are willing to donate their time to cut your hair as specified.

To Meghan, and ALL of our 2020 donors, we’re so grateful for you. Thank you for being such an incredible part of our Wigs For Kids family!
