Imagine if you couldn’t grow hair.
It can be easy to take for granted, but there are millions of children who can’t. Whether it’s from alopecia, cancer treatments or severe burns, the effects of medically-related hair loss can have a painful impact on a child’s life.
The problem is, a single human hair replacement can require hair donations from up to eight people and cost up to $5,000. For most families, it’s an expense they cannot afford.
Children With Hair Loss™ provides these children with customized hair replacements and care kits at no cost to the family. As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, they are the only organization of their kind who provide services 100% free of charge.
In 2017 alone, Children With Hair Loss provided wigs to 569 children! That’s incredible...but helping so many kids at no charge requires a lot of hair—and a lot of financial support.
Longhairs Do Care
If you haven’t met us yet, we’re The Longhairs: a global fraternity for men with long hair. We publish tips and tactics for guys with flow, advocate for hair equality, and celebrate men’s long manes with hair whips and high fives.
We’re the creators of Hair Ties For Guys™ , the finest men’s hair ties in the world, offering these and other superior products on our website at thelonghairs.us, where we donate $1 for every sale to Children With Hair Loss.
As we are so fortunate and grateful for the ability to grow our manes, we thought it only fitting to partner with Children With Hair Loss. They are an organization of kind and generous people, whose deeds heal the hearts of children and light smiles on their faces.
Founded in 2000 by Regina Villemure, Children With Hair Loss has helped more than 3,500 children face their daily lives with confidence and self esteem, providing customized hair replacements, care kits, support and education, all for free.
Many people don't know that Regina, after helping children for 18 years, was diagnosed with cancer last year and lost her own hair to chemotherapy.
The great news is her therapy has been effective and she is in remission. Even throughout her treatment she was going into the office making sure wigs were being sent to the children who needed them!
The Cut of All Cuts
Regina and her team’s spirit of helping kids is why The Longhairs are so very proud to support our charity partners and the wonderful things they are doing.
Which brings us to The Great Cut.
On 3/16/19 we broke the Guinness World Record for the largest hair donation in history. An amazing 2,834 people donated 339.14 pounds of hair to provide hair replacements for 200 children with medically-related hair loss.
WE PUT OUR PRECIOUS LOCKS ON THE LINE FOR THE KIDS...CAN WE COUNT ON YOU TO KICK IN A FEW BUCKS??!
Change a child’s life and be part of history: donate today.
Because long hair lives in the heart.
