Locks of Love is a public, nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under the age of 21 who are suffering from long-term, medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest-quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers. Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence, and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest-quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
Locks of Love is a nonprofit organization that provides custom-fitted, prosthetic hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under the age of 21. These hairpieces are made entirely from donated human hair. For more information about Locks of Love, please visit www.locksoflove.org.
