Recipient Program

Q: Are partial hairpieces or extensions available?

Our hair replacement systems are designed to conceal complete hair loss or minimal hair growth due to medical reason, including therapy treatments (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation), damage to the scalp caused by burns, scarring, alopecia or trichotillomania. If your child suffers from partial hair loss, an evaluation will help us determine if our full cap solution can satisfactorily meet their needs. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Q: What is a ‘hair replacement system’?

Referred to as ‘hair replacement systems,’ each hairpiece is hand-tied and composed entirely from donated human hair. The Wigs For Kids ‘full cap’ solution is designed for complete hair loss. In cases where there is partial hair loss, an evaluation is needed to determine if our full cap solution will meet your child’s needs. We are here and ready to help. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Wigs For Kids hairpieces are created using donated human hair, which is not processed with dyes or other chemicals that alter the color or texture of the hair. We support the range of organic or natural colors provided through our donated hair inventory. Highlight, lowlights, ombre, and fashion hair colors are not available. Wigs For Kids offers hairpieces in 12” and 14” hair lengths.

Q: What is Wigs For Kids?

Wigs For Kids provides hairpieces to children aged 18 years or younger who are experiencing hair loss due to medical reason. The process for creating hairpieces made from human hair takes time, and the cost for producing one through the Wigs For Kids Recipient Program runs in excess of $2,000.00. We provide our hairpieces free of charge to eligible recipients because we believe every child deserves the ability to look themself and live their life.
