Hi my name is Lauren and I'm here to discuss how to donate human hair. When thinking about donating human hair you have kind of a lot to think about. First off you need to choose which charity it is that you want to donate your hair for. There are many different charities out there. There Pantene Lengths and Wigs for Kids and Locks of Love. There are numerous different charities where you can actually provide hair in order to make wigs for other children or adults that need it. So first off you are going to want to really focus on what exactly it is you want to donate your hair towards. Once you figure out which organization you'd like to donate it to you are going to see what their requirements are. Some organizations only require eight inches. Others require ten or twelve. You are pretty much going to have to do anywhere from ten to twelve inches in order to donate the hair. Once you have decided you do want to donate you are going to keep growing your hair. You do want to go for regular trims in order to get your bad ends off and you want to make sure that you take very good care of your hair. Steer clear from coloring, anything that is very damaging to your hair and really treat your hair nicely. You know use leave in conditioners. Make sure you maintain the health and the vigor of your hair. Your hair will not actually be of much use or be of much help if it is in horrible condition. You really want to maintain that healthy aspect of it. Once you decide that you want to do it and the you are also ready to do it, now you have gotten your hair length. First off your stylist will go over what exactly, how much length you need to take off and where your hair will then rest so how to create a new style and make it a new you. They will separate your hair into four sections. They will do two in the front and two in the back and then they will literally just cut the pony tail off and that's how your hair will be donated. So make sure that the style is good for you, discuss with the professional where exactly they will cut it to and what your style will be thereafter and make sure you're o'kay to make the plunge. Another thing is that there are certain salons and certain hair dressers throughout the world who have the notion that if you donate your hair we donate our time so ask around and see if there is anybody who does actually donate their time and that way you can get your new transformation and do a good thing for other people and plus be able to get it done for free and that is how to donate hair.
