For the second time now, my daughter Dani has gotten her long hair cut off to donate to Locks of Love. Originally we were told that the hair had to be at least 10 inches long to donate, but it turns out that they actually will take any reasonable amount of hair, and if it's not long enough for LOL to use it directly themselves, they will sell it to other wig manufacturers. Either way, they benefit!
Locks of Love provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children who have the need because of any long-term medical need.
Dani's hair grows incredibly fast, so she was able to donate two years in a row.
