  • Where I live they usually give the hair back to you with the stuff to send it away to the company that does the Locks of Love. My niece just donated a month ago and thats what they did for her. But here you have to have atleast 10 inches to donate. Maybe call the salon and ask about it. My niece didnt get anything for donating though.

  • I wouldn't trust the salon either. Maybe you should check up on it.
    I have never donated. I was intending to and then I found out they don't take bleached hair (I am a dark blond who highlights), so I can't tell you. I did find that out by going to their website. You could start there?

  • I have donated before, and I never got anything for it.

  • I've done it twice. The first time I think they sent me something. The second time, I honestly can't remember but I sent it in myself and that was just this past January. I have pregnancy brain so there's really no telling whether they did or not.

  • I've never heard of anyone getting anything back from them for donating hair.
    I've always wanted to donate but I dye my hair way too often.

    Why would you think the salon just sold it?

  • My daughter did. She received a thank you email from them; we shipped the hair, though, so the thank you probably went to the salon
