I have super long hair right now, down to the middle of my back. I want to donate...my MIL had breast cancer and I remember how hard it was on her when she lost her hair.


From my limited research I've done so far, I'm leaning more towards Pantene Beautiful Lengths, because their wigs are donated to women with cancer. From what I've read, Locks of Love charges for their wigs on a sliding scale based on income, but their wigs do go to children suffering from a variety of causes for hair loss.


Does anyone have any research they'd like to add, or want to correct me or anything? 


Please vote and bump!

Never heard of Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Only heard of locks of love. What what I found with them. It has to be 10" or longer and has to be free of dyes.

Pantene requires eight inches of hair and the hair can only be dyed with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. But my hair isn't colored and I have at least twelve inches I could cut off.


Thanks for replying!

Pantene probably. I've heard Locks of Love doesn't actually do what they say they do.

I've never heard of the pantene one before. I've always donated to locks of love in the past. Maybe the pantene one since it hits close to home and your hair isn't dyed? I can't imagine that's very common nowadays lol

Eh idk... Never heard of Pantene's program. I donated to Locks of Love at least 3 times since I was a teenager... I haven't done it in years. Last time I did it I had to search for a place as the place I used to do it stopped. Either way I think it's just good that you are donating!
