How long does your hair have to be to donate it?

I am getting my hair cut and I am thinking of donating it, but how long does it have to be? Also are there any other places besides locks of love?

Thats awesome I am planning on doing the same thing! The hair must be ten inches long and in a braid or pony tail when donating to locks of love. If your hair is curly it must be pulled straight and then equal ten inches. If your hair has been bleached they will not except it. Also you can donate to wigs for kids and they require it to be 12 inches. Good luck

10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed. It can't be bleached at hair. Hugs-U-wear and Wigs for kids

i've done locks of love 2 times. I did it earlier this year and when i was like 6. Each time i needed 10 inches for the wig but the put your hair in a pony tail to cut it so they need an extra 2 inches to even it out. The first time i did it my hair was longer than my butt, i did it, it was a little passed my shoulders (i think they took more than 10 inches, so make sure your hair isn't too long when you do it) The time this year i had it almost to my butt and it was shoulder length. So don't have hair shorter than the bra hook thing in the back, i've seen girls have exactly 10 inches, when they were done they had almost no hair left.

Your hair needs to be ten inches or longer to donate. It must also be healthy hair it can’t be damaged or too thin. Also most hair solons will cut your hair for you and send it in, if I’m not mistaken you get a free hair cut with your donation. I hope this helps. :)

when i donated my hair it they took 7 inches but there was still a lot more hair could have taken but they didnt but i think it depends on where you live so these answers might not help depending on who your barber is you call look up the website if they have one and see how long it has to be OR you if they dont have a website you could go and ask if your hair is to short sorry if its not great!!

Your hair has to be atleast 10 inches past the point where it will be cut.

...and Locks of Love is the most prominent organization out there. (I'm sure there are more, but that is the most widespread and will be able to do the most with what they collect)

I donated around 12 inches not too long ago. It was very strong hair. I think it was because I had been taking yacon syrup. http://www.ask.com/answers/509821081/what-is-the-best-yacon-syrup
