Love Those Locks looks to grow hair donations
Donated hair benefits those who suffer from hair loss
ASU Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is sponsoring the "Love Those Locks" charity event, along with the Texas College of Cosmetology on Monday, March 31.
The event benefits children and young adults who suffer from conditions that cause hair loss.
"Nothing feels better than being able to help someone," sophomore Karina Escamilla said. "We take things such as hair for granted. It can make a huge difference to someone who is sick. I'm glad they offer programs like this to benefit those who could use it."
Freshman Jessica McNulty said she had heard about Locks of Love but never had the chance to donate.
"I know how important something as small as hair is for a girl," McNulty said. "If it helps a young woman feel more confident, then I support it."
CSI asks for all donations to be at least eight inches in length.
"I think it's cool that female students are giving their hair to those who really need it," freshman Ricardo Ortiz Jr. said. "A lot of girls care about how their own hair looks, but it's great that they are willing to donate to help someone else. I know a lot of people who would be too hesitant to donate their own hair even though it grows back."
All hair donated during the event is given to Locks of Love.
The Locks of Love organization gives hairpieces to underprivileged people within the U.S. and Canada under the age of 21. Those who are part of the program might suffer from long-term diseases or conditions that cause hair loss. The donated hair helps build self-esteem and confidence.
It also allows the young adults and children to feel more comfortable in day-to-day life.
The event will be held at the Texas College of Cosmetology at 2504 Knickerbocker Road from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone who would like to participate in the event can schedule an appointment at the CSI.
Students can also register on the Greek Life page on the ASU website.
Locks of Love also asks for participants' hair not to be bleached, synthetic or in dreadlocks.
The participants' hair needs to be clean, dry and fixed in ponytails or braids. Permed and colored hair is also accepted.
