Hair Donations

Thank you for thinking about us for your hair donation.

We accept both hair cut donations and used hair extensions to create our wonderful hair systems. Before donating your hair/hair extensions to us, please read the following checklists below to ensure that they can be used.
To find out more ways to help our charity 


Haircut Donations

  • The hair must be at least 7 inches (17 cm) long.

  • The hair must be in excellent condition.

  • The hair donated must not be tangled. The hair must be washed and dried before donated. If it is wet, the hair cannot be used, as it can get mouldy.

  • We accept donations from any gender, colour or texture as long as it is not dry or frizzy.

  • If you are donating hair and it was cut long time ago, it must be well maintained.

  • You can also donate any old hair pieces such as wigs as long as it is human hair.

  • You can either book an appointment at our salon for your hair cut, or get it done at your salon of choice.

  • Please ask your hairdresser to secure your hair with a hairband, and cut the hair just above the hairband. Braid the hair and secure the other end, as this stops the hair from getting tangled.
