Maybe next time. :)

Quoting mamabirch88:

Mine was bleached. It's been probably a year ago now and has since been dyed over but it was bleached for highlights. :(



Quoting honeyrder:

Anyone can cut your hair as long as the guidelines listed below are followed.  We encourage all of our donors to go to 

a salon they are already familiar with to ensure their comfort when donating. If you are not sure if your hair falls

within our guidelines or have question  about any products you have used, please consult your stylist or the 

manufacturer of your product. 

Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.  

Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.  

Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches, and may be divided into multiple ponytails.  

Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.  

10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.  

Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable.  If unsure, ask your stylist.  

We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process.

Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it has not been cut while bundled in a ponytail or braid.  

Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. You may divide your hair into multiple ponytails,

and cut each one off before continuing to shave. 

We cannot accept dreadlocks, wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair. 

Our manufacturer is not able to use them  in our children’s hairpieces.

I'd love to but I dye my hair and have been told you can't if you do.

This is off their website.

Just once.

Lame picture but it shows the length. This was about 7 months before I cut it.

One of my coworkers said that it required a lot of dedication for her to do it one time and she won't again. I actually get stressed out in salons, so it is easy to let my hair grow. I'm not noticing the lack of weight this time. 

Cool about your dad! Is he a hippie? A biker?
