Hair Donation

Q: How long should I wait after I have dyed or highlighted my hair?

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.

Q: How do I donate my hair?

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.
