How long does your hair need To be to donate hair for locks of love?

I have heard ranges from 6-10 inches

I think you have to donate at least 6 inches.

kim h
Minimum of 10 inches. Go to www.locksoflove.org and all of your questions will be answered. They even have on there where to send it to.

Hope you are not planning to donate hair to honor someone with cancer. Locks of Love makes wigs for kids with a rare bald hair condition called alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is NOT cancer. They only give wigs to kids with long term or permanent hair loss. Children with cancer only have a TEMPORARY hair loss from chemotherapy . . so they don't generally get a wig. Only 3 percent of any wig from Locks of Love goes to a child who has permanent hair loss from chemotherapy or radiation . . . . so cut away and donate your hair but make sure you realize that the hair does not go to children with cancer . . . almost never. They are not a cancer organization.

There are a few other organizations that do donate to kids who have hair loss from short term chemotherapy and that is:

Wigs for Kids

Wigs 4 Kids

Little Princesses

I'm a Kid Foundation

Angel Hair Foundation

Pantene Beautiful Lengths

10-12 inches I think. Look it up on web search.

10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.

Daddy's girl
I think it's 10 inches, but you can also google it & make sure.

10 inches. See locksoflove.org

At least 6 inches. Most salons that offer Locks of Love donation will tell you if you have enough hair. Some even offer discounted styling post-cut in return for your donation.

Here is all the information from the Locks of Love website..


Please Note: Anyone can cut your hair as long as the guidelines listed below are followed. We encourage all of our donors to go to a salon they are already familiar with to ensure their comfort when donating.

Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
Hair 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.
Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable.
Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable.
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.
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.

Please note: To donate your hair the Hair Donation Form is not required. If you are having trouble downloading or printing the Hair Donation Form, just write down your name and address on a separate sheet of paper and include it in the envelope with your donation so that we may send you an acknowledgement.


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.
Fill out the hair donation form, or write your name and address on a separate sheet of paper and include inside the envelope.
All hair donations must be mailed to Locks of Love at:

2925 10th Avenue N
Suite 102
Lake Worth, FL 33461-3099
Please be sure to use the entire zip code when mailing. Thank you!


In order to protect your privacy and in compliance with our Privacy Policy, Locks of Love does not provide information regarding donations that we receive. If you want to be certain of when your donation arrives at Locks of Love, please ship your package with a tracking number.
To serve as receipt of your donation, a thank-you card is sent to each donor within 90 days from the date we receive your donation. Donor information must be clearly written on the donation form or on a separate sheet of paper and included with the donation.
If you don't receive a thank-you, it doesn't mean that we didn't receive your package! If 3 months has gone by and you have not yet received your thank-you, please e-mail volunteer@locksoflove.org and we will send another card.
Hair is needed from men and women, young and old, all colors and races.
There is no maximum length you can donate.
It is estimated that 80% of all donations come from children who wish to help other children.

I'm sure they need at least 6 inches so it's long enough to "work" with...
I think it's a wonderful thing for you to be thinking of doing!
Enjoy your new hair do.........

You have to get AT LEAST 10 inches cut off.

10 inches. I donated mine for the 4th time 2 weeks ago. I would suggest trying to have a foot though... this last time I think the lady couldn't judge length very well and cut off more than the 10 inches I asked for.

I went to Great Clips and if you donate they will cut your hair for free. (but take a few bucks to tip the stylist).

volcom girl.
I think the minimum you can donate is 10 inches, so less you plan to cut it extremely short then you would probably want your hair about 15+ inches.
