I've done it, twice.

It's a great idea if you're thinking of going from long to short hair!

You can donate your hair and avoid the cost of a 'long hair fee' at the salon at the same time!

Ten inches or more, in a ponytail or braid, is required.

They accept colored, permed or gray hair but can not accept bleached hair or dreadlocks.

Hair donated is used to make hairpieces for disadvantaged children who suffer hair-loss due to many types of illness.

Though they do not use the gray hair that is donated, they sell it to offset the costs of producing hairpieces for these deserving children.

    Well, it sounds like you got two good things/feelings in one day. And I know how you feel about the hair. My son didn't have very long hair but I was so happy the day he got it cut out of his face. I had almost forgot what he looked like.
    It's so great your son donated his hair when he got it cut!

    I have about 4 inches left to spare before my length hits my lower back area. Once it does, I'm chopping it off, and donating it to the cause. This gives me time to think up a hairstyle, but also would put me back to having it no shorter than shoulder length. I have a lot of hair, it would be nice to feel a little lighter.

    That sounds like a great plan, Moonbeams. Hair takes a while to grow out so it's a precious gift. People who read your comment will realize they don't have to go drastically short, if they plan ahead like you. :)

    mine was supposed to get donated but i dont believe the nice lady at the salon did cuz as i was getting my hair cut off the lady next to me said "your hair is beautiful i would love to have extensions that color" so i am left to believe that my hair went to extensions instead of to Locks of Love.

    That's so uncool and I never thought about a black market for hair in which participating salons would sell the hair instead of donating it.
    Although I trust my hairdresser, I mailed mine myself.
    It's the thought that counts so you're awesome for trying. And who knows? Maybe it did make it to Locks of Love. I guess you'll never know for sure but when you mail it yourself, they send a thank you post card. I hope you get to try again, someday.
    Thanks for answering my question and bringing up this point.

    My friend keeps encouraging me to donate my hair since it's almost at my waist, but my mom would have a heart attack if I cut it off...

    Well, you could wait until it's at your feet and then just cut ten inches off. What d'ya think?
