Donating Hair For Cancer Requirements

How To Donate. 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length used for a hairpiece. Hair must be in a ponytail or braid before it is cut. Hair must be clean and completely dry before it is mailed in. Place the ponytail or braid inside of a plastic bag, and then inside of an envelope.
Measure the length of the ponytail from the elastic band to the tips, making sure it's at least 8 inches long. Donations shorter than 8 inches will not be used, because this is too short for making a wig. If your hair is not 8 inches, continue growing it out. There is no maximum length requirement.
The majority of all hair donated comes from children who wish to help other children. Please see the step-by-step guide below to learn about donating your hair.
