God only knows. It is known that wig manufacturers get recycled human hair ( for lack of a better word) from Barbershops and beauty salons. Prison barber shops are a long-know…n source ( do I hear Jailhouse Rock) as haircuts are common and frequent in the Big House- there is a steady supply. Normally waste hair from barber shops and beauty salons are the ( raw material).
You can find requirements on the donation on the locks of love website. You mail your donation to: Locks of Love 234 Southern Blvd. West Palm Beach, FL 33405-2701
None, I have not seen any proof of any research or any money collected by the American Cancer Society used for the prevention of cure of cancer.
well first of all it depends on what you mean by clippings cause your hair must reach these criteria (sorry its a bit long XD) Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.Ha…ir 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.Printable Guidelines (PDF) 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. this is also what u should know 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed 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 a padded envelope.If you wish to receive an acknowledgment for your hair donation, please fill out the hair donation form, or write your name and e-mail address or mailing address on a full size separate sheet of paper and include inside the envelope.

There is more than one, but I have donated hair to Locks of Love and found it a very easy and rewarding experience. See the link below to their website for more information. M…any hair salons will give you a free haircut and the forms to use to mail in your donation. One of these is Supercuts. But many salons offer this incentive for people to donate to this great cause. If your hairdresser does not, they can often refer you to a place that does give the cuts for free. There are minimum lengths of hair accepted and requirements about coloring, etc. so get the information before you cut too early.
In order to donate to Locks of Love hair must be a minimum of ten inches from tip to tip.
