Saints girls donate strands of their hair for a good cause

Saints girls are thrilled to donate their strands of hair.

The girls from St Stithians College had the exciting experience of donating strands of their hair for a good cause.

A Few Grey Hairs, a hairdressing salon based in Linden, took the initiative on 19 May to encourage the girls to donate their hair to women who need wigs.

Saints girls are excited to cut some of their hair to be made into wigs.

Many women experience hair loss due to stress, different types of diseases, during cancer treatment, and menopause.

A Few Grey Hairs helps those women by finding younger girls to donate their hair to be made into wigs, and the Saints girls came out in their numbers in support of this initiative.

 

All the St. Stithians girls who donated their hair were excited to give a helping hand.

A Few Grey Hairs Salon is also an organisation where Delia and Elizabeth Dashwood work together to raise funds by approaching people and businesses to donate either monetarily or their hair.

Girls help each other cut their hair to donate to a good cause.

The issue of hair loss was made real when some of the women who had received hair were at the event and told the girls their stories.

A Few Grey Hairs also connects the women who receive wigs made from donated hair to their donors with their mobile application, Hairs

“Not a lot of people know how much confidence a woman loses when she loses her hair. We are trying to give those woman their confidence back,” said Delia.

The girls were thrilled to be donating their hair and each had about 10g of their hair cut off on the day.

For any donations or queries, you can contact Delia Dashwood on 082 465 7075.
