Empower Cancer & Alopecia patients

Real Fringe Hair Bands creates a product for anyone experiencing hair loss, such as Oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy and Alopecia Areata patients. Real human hair is used, ultimately from the patient’s own hair that is collected before their hair falls out, or alternatively it is donated by our generous donors. A single band will be made, and depending on the amount of hair collected. Each RFHB is unique.
Real Fringe Hair Bands needs to upgrade the machinery in Melbourne, so cancer patients can have their product created for them with their own hair even faster.
Our hair bands are made from soft and comfortable elastic and are designed to be worn underneath other head wear such as hats, scarves, turbans, head wraps, beanies, etc. The unique Real Fringe patented designs give the patients a “real fringe” effect (hence our name!) that looks easy and natural.
No other hair product maker in Australia accepts dyed human hair (and natural hair too) that is a minimum of 15 cm, but we do! 
All our hair bands are handmade with love right here in Melbourne, Australia. We believe in supporting local workers and local businesses and take great pride in keeping our production local. So donating to us means knowing where your hair and money are going.
