Where Can I Donate Gray Hair?

Save

Some places won't take it because it is brittle and breaks easily during wig making. Some won't accept it because it won't hold the color applied in manufacturing. Nevertheless, there are options for those wishing to donate gray hair to charity.

World of Wigs

  • At World of Wigs, you can not only donate your gray hair but you can specify a person you want your hair to go to.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths

  • Though Pantene Beautiful Lengths will accept gray hair, they amount of gray in the bundle of hair sent can only be a maximum of 5 percent.

Wigs for Kids

  • Though gray hair is accepted here, Wigs for Kids does not guarantee that all hair sent in to them will be used.

  • Care Sessions accepts gray hair donations. Like with other charities, they will sell otherwise unusable hair to help financially with the costs of wig-making.
