‘Can I Sell or Donate My Hair to Charity?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Donating Your Hair to CharityName: Roz

Question: I have really long thick hair that gets lots of compliments and there’s always loads of it in my brush every day. I’m not losing it or anything, it’s just falling out a normal amount but if I collect it up, is there a way that I could sell it or donate it to someone who needs it?

Answer: Hi Roz. We are unaware of any way of making money from selling your hair in this way.

If you wanted to donate your hair to charity, however, this is entirely possible. You would need to have your hair cut rather than collect shed hairs from your brush though.

If you are interested in donating your hair to a charity, we recommend you contact Little Princess Trust which makes real hair wigs for children with hair loss, usually as a side-effect of cancer treatment or due to Alopecia Areata.

The minimum length that can be donated is seven inches and there are a number of other criteria involved too. You can find out more about what’s involved in donating your hair to charity on our website, or contact the Trust on 01432 363 505 who will be able to talk you through the process.
