Questions about Hair Donations
Will my ponytail make a wig?
It takes approximately 12 ponytails to create a wig.
Can I be certain that my hair will be used to make a wig?
The manufacturers make the selection based on several production criteria.
How does your hair become their hair?
Step One: A donor with clean dry hair secures it into a ponytail or braid, then cuts it. A minimum of 10 inches of hair is needed.
Step Two: The hair undergoes chemical processing at a science lab. This special treatment prepares and sanitizes hair properly.
Step Three: A hackle is used to carefully blend and direct the hair from root to end. Natural hair is a blend of many colors.
Step Four: One ponytail makes up only about 1/10 of the finished hairpiece. A blend of six to eight ounces of hair in varying shades of color ensures the natural look and feel of the child’s wig.
Step Five: A plaster mold is made of the child’s head.
Step Six: Once the mold is set, a liquid form is poured into the mold and allowed to dry. When the form and the mold are separated from one another, a cap that fits the size of the resulting cast is made. This cap serves as the foundation of the hairpiece. Because the child who wears the hairpiece will likely swim, shower, and sleep with it on. The design of this foundation is carefully considered and the materials from which it is made are carefully selected.
Step Seven: Each strand of hair is hand-tied. The hair is now designed for the child’s request.
