ABOUT PANTENE BEAUTIFUL LENGTHS
Pantene is committed to helping all women feel their best, which inspired us to draw people together and make a difference for women facing cancer. That’s why we are the proud founder of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program which encourages women and men to grow, cut, and donate their hair to make real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. A woman’s healthy hair is an incredible instrument of self-expression, defining her self-image in a way that almost no other physical attribute can.
So what does hair loss mean to a woman? Hair loss can strike an especially crippling blow to women fighting cancer. In fact, a recent study revealed that nearly 60 percent of women consider hair loss the most dreaded side effect they face when undergoing chemotherapy. Real-hair wigs can cost as much as $1200 and are often only partially covered by health insurance.
Donating your hair is a heartfelt and life-changing act of women’s cancer and breast cancer support. When you’re ready, make the kindest cut of all and donate your healthy hair to make free wigs for women who have lost their hair to cancer.
