About Locks of Love

Locks of Love

Locks of Love is committed to providing the highest quality hair prostheses (hairpieces) to every child suffering from long term or permanent medical hair loss. The hair prostheses provided are custom-made from donated ponytails and would retail between $3,500 and $6,000. Locks of Love provides them FREE of charge. These prostheses are different from synthetic hairpieces because they form a vacuum seal, and do not require the use of tape or glue. Only the wearer of the prosthesis may remove it, by breaking the vacuum seal at the temples. Children can dismiss insecurities about classmates pulling off their hairpiece, or losing it during sports. They can also swim and shower with it in place. Wigs do not provide the security needed for everyday activities of children. This sense of security allows the children to get back their self-confidence and be kids again.

Donated hair must be at least 10 inches long and not bleached.

Appointments required; those who donate hair get free haircuts.

Call us now to make an appointment to participate, 503-665-1357.
