Anyone know anything about the locks of love program? - June 16th 2012, 05:12 AM

It's something I've been planning on doing, but now I'm unsure on exactly how long my hair may need to be! My cousin's grandma is a hairdresser and said she thought it was like an 11 inch requirement to donate, other people have said 6, then my friend said someone she knows had done it and it didn't look like she could have met either of those. Currently my hair is already down to about the small of my back, but when I donate to the program I'd like to only have it cut to about shoulder length or so.

I'm just not sure anymore, and I'd like to have an idea. Anyone know if it varies with where you donate at, or what?

According to the Locks of Love website, it must be at least 10 inches of hair. The other requirements are as followed, copied and pasted from the website:

Quote:
♥ Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
♥ Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.
♥ Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist. We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. **If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is fine to donate.
♥ Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it is not bundled in a ponytail or braid.
♥ Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. If shaving your head, first divide hair into multiple ponytails to cut off.
♥ We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children’s hairpieces. We also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
♥ Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches.
♥ Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails.
♥ Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.
♥ 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.

Please Note:

♥ Shorter hair will be separated from the ponytails and sold to offset the manufacturing costs. Although the shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces, it still greatly helps to reduce costs.
♥ Gray hair will be accepted and sold to offset the manufacturing costs.
♥ Colored hair is not usable if it is colored over bleached hair.
♥ Because Locks of Love creates custom hairpieces for each child, we are unable to accept donations of wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
For more information on the Locks of Love organization, I highly suggest checking out their website (http://www.locksoflove.org/donate.html)
