During MCO, a lot of us grew out our hairs be it men or women. Instead of just chopping it off and throwing it away, here’s what you can do which is far more meaningful – help cancer patients!

The Locks of Hope Association is the first association in Malaysia that allows the public to donate their hair to be turned into wigs for cancer patients.

Here’s how you can donate your hair to them:

Form 4

For illustration purposes only.

Requirements:

  1. Hair has to be at a minimum length of 6 inches (15.24cm), though they do have a preferred length of 8 inches (20.32cm).
  2. Coloured hair, permed hair and hair that has gone through rebonding is accepted only after six months the process is done.
  3. Hair that is being donated should be dry.
  4. No bleached or damaged hair.

 

How to donate your hair:

  1. Visit any salon and have them tie a ponytail with a rubber band before cutting your hair, or you can visit one of their recommended salon partners.
  2. Place the hair, along with this donation form, in a sealed plastic bag before placing it in an envelope to protect the hair.
  3. Send it over to the Locks of Hope Association’s office at:

LOCKS OF HOPE ASSOCIATION
No.29-2, Jalan Temenggung 19/9, Sek 9,
Bandar Mahkota Cheras,
43200 Kajang, Selangor.
Malaysia

TEL: 010-806 2447

You can check the courier service’s online delivery status to track your package or you can wait for the Locks of Hope Association to post a name list on their Facebook page, once they have processed your parcel.

You can also email them your full name (in capital letters) and your IC number to receive your e-certificate.

 

Support via money donation for wig making

The process of having the hair sent to China to be made into wigs cost over RM800 each, hence a little monetary help can go a long way for the Locks of Hope Association.

You can donate to them here:

Bank: Hong Leong bank
Account number: 21500045722

Remember to save the receipt and send it to them once you’ve made the donation!

Form 5

For illustration purposes only.

“Hair loss is one of the most traumatic side effects that most chemotherapy patients face, especially female and child patients,”

“In line with its tagline, ‘Look Great Feel Greater’, the Locks of Hope Hair Donation Campaign is brought to Malaysians by MMIS Professionals to provide a platform for Malaysians to donate their hair to be turned into wigs for cancer patients who are going through chemotherapy,” they shared on their website.

The least we can do to cheer up these patients is to donate our hair when we cut it.
