If you're thinking of taking the Chop To Your Chin challenge to help the Little Princess Trust just follow the guidelines below to ensure they can get the best out of your donated hair. 

Suitable hair:

  • A minimum length of 7"/17cm is needed, but naturally the more hair there is the better
  • Clean, dry hair which is in good condition from any gender and of any natural colour
  • Straight, wavy, curly, permed or chemically straightened
  • Containing the occasional grey (less than 10%)
  • Dyed, bleached/highlighted (any dyes must be of a natural colour)
  • Plaits, cut a long time ago, preserved in good condition

Unsuitable hair:

  • Hair that is less than 7"/17cm in length 
  • Dyed in an unnatural colour (blue, green, purple etc)
  • Largely/mostly grey hair
  • Afro (the wig maker is not a specialist manufacturer of Afro wigs. The Trust buys in these wigs separately)
  • Dreadlocks
  • Hair extensions

Guidelines for donating your hair:

  • Wash and dry your hair
  • Do not add conditioner or styling products
  • Put your dry hair into a plait(s)
  • Secure at both ends with an elastic band
  • Ask your hairdresser to cut above the band/s nearest your head
  • Put your dry plait(s) into a clear resealable plastic bag
  • Place them into a padded envelope and post using a standard service to:
    Little Princess Trust
    Broadway House
    32-35 Broad Street
    HR4 9AR
  • Please have your parcel weighed to make sure you use the right postage
  • Include your email address, clearly written using the Hair Donation Slip so that the Trust can email you a Thank You certificate
  • It might take as long as 6-8 weeks to receive your emailed certificate
  • PS: The Trust accepts hair from outside the UK!
