Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Post by briteasafirefly on Sun Jun 06, 2010 10:47 pm

I thought I'd share a couple pictures with you guys and hopefully I do it right...sorry if they are a little big!




I'm donating to Pantene Beautful Lengths...I'm anti Locks of Love after reading what they actually do. Beautiful Lengths actually uses the hair and donates it to the American Cancer Society. Hillary Swank is their spokesmodel...she cut her hair off on Oprah a few years ago.

My gosh, your hair was long (and still is compared to my shortness LOL)... and what a very thoughtful thing to do.

You know how to grow some hair, Jessica! I like the new length, and love that you do this for those who need it.

I love it!!

I'm glad to know that its going to someone that will appriciate it so much. I hate that Locks of Love has became the way they are. But it seems to happen with alot of companies when $ comes into play.. Sad

So what is it about Locks of Love that is bad? Not that my hair is ever been long enough to donate, but had a friend in '06 that did.

Cool, cutting it for a good cause is always good.

We donated Bay's hair to Locks Of love last year, 18 inches of Curly hair....I donated mine last year...but only 9 inches. I ddin't know they were bad?

Apparently they sell alot of the hair they collect, for example, in 2002 they collected and sold $216K worth, and only made and donated 113 wigs to kids. I looked that up on the BBB website.

Locks of Love sells the hair they receive and then they sell the wigs they actually make. So they are double profitting... and its not really about the kids anymore. Everyone has asked if I was donating it to Locks of Love and I've explained to everyone that no I don't support what they do.
I cut my hair once before January 2008 and really looked into places to donate to and I learned about Locks of Love through their own website.

Plus I have stronger ties to the American Cancer Society and what they do...

But giving them a chance... perhaps the hair they sell that which was donated that isn't quality hair, ie, died, damaged... as I said, I have a friend who has donated, and they are very strick about the quality.

However, I didn't know they sold the wigs, I thought they were donated.

Very interesting! I have a friend going through breast cancer right now and I know through the american cancer society she gets her wigs for free. I was assuming that is where the wigs from something like Locks of Love would go.. nice to know what is really going on!
