    lovelydyedlocks: Have you ever donated your hair to make a wig for someone with medical hair loss? There are three main non-profit organizations in the U.S. and Canada that make hair pieces for people with medical hair loss. They all have different hair donation requirements and their wigs go to different people (e.g. Locks of Love only makes wigs for minors under 21).   All the organizations share the below requirements: Your hair must be donated in a ponytail or braid. The ponytail must measure the minimum required length from one end to the other. Hair must be clean and dry, placed in a plastic bag and sent by mail.

Some day, when my husband's job doesn't require me to make occasional appearances at company events, I'm doing this.

MUST TRY! Things Needed: Curling Iron, Elastic Band, Bobby Pins, Comb & Hair Spray. 1) Curl hair and create a low pony tail with the bottom middle portion of the hair & divide the rest into 3 sections 2) Tease the top portion & twist it down to the ponytail & pin it 3) Tease side portion & twist it to the ponytail & pin it 4) Repeat on other side 5) Add some hair spray & you are ready to go!
