Why Can’t I Donate My Gray Hair?

ImageGood news – You can! Hair can be donated if it is 5 percent gray (or less)!

But here’s why you can’t donate your hair if it is more than 5% gray:

  • When we make our real-hair wigs, we have to dye the hair so that it is all one color. Gray hair, as well as some chemically-treated or permanently-colored hair, does not absorb dye at the same rate as other types of hair. It is much harder to color and, once colored, fades more quickly. While we greatly appreciate your desire to donate your hair, gray hair often cannot withstand the rigorous process it take to create a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig.

In appreciation of the sacrifice that a hair donation requires, we only accept hair that we know can be used to create a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig.
