What Happens To My Hair After I Donate it To CWHL?

hairdonorVolunteers open the packages and separate the donation slips from the hair. The hair then gets separated into colors and lengths by another set of volunteers. Once there is enough to fill up a box, the hair is shipped to a wig manufacturer who holds onto that hair until we place an order. The hair is shipped to our wig manufacturer to make hair replacements for the children.
