Anytime we have a client who is wanting to donate their hair, we recommend they use a great organization called Children with Hair Loss instead of the other donation companies many of us have heard of. Here’s why we recommend Children with Hair loss when donating hair in Dallas, and how to schedule an appointment if you are interested.
We do not charge extra for hair donations, in fact we take care of printing the paperwork and shipping your donation ponytail(s) to Children with Hair Loss for free. All we charge at our Dallas Hair Salon for hair donations is the normal cost of a haircut service. Feel free to call or text us, or you can schedule online 24/7 via this link:
“CWHL opened in September 2000. After researching, we didn’t find any other organizations that were giving human hair replacements to children at no cost. CWHL’s mission and goals were to never charge a family at a time when they need the most help. After years of intense fund raising, CWHL was able to purchase their first building in 2005. The headquarters resides in South Rockwood, Michigan in an old renovated fire station. Originally, CWHL’s focus was on children fighting cancer, until we found out that there were a lot of other reasons why children lost hair including Alopecia, burns, Trichotillomania and other rare diseases and disorders. To this day, Children With Hair Loss has never charged a child. Currently, we provide a customized human hair replacement and care kit to over 300 children a year.”(Quote taken from the CWHL website)
I met some volunteers from the company who had a booth at a beauty industry event for professionals. Every single person there was volunteering their time, they had paid for the booth from donations outside of the organization. Their commitment to simply help children with absolutely no out of pocket expense is amazing, and I couldn’t keep recommending any other company to clients looking to help.
This is simple: CWHL donates a hair replacement solution to a child for free until they turn 21. Locks of love, according to their website at the date of this posting, lists the retail on these hair pieces between “$3,500 and $6,000.” Free versus $3,500+ when we’re talking about children…. this is a no brainer in our opinion!
