Here is what you need:
- 1 big ziplock bag
- A cut ponytail measuring at least 10 inches
- A padded envelope
- LOL hair donation form
Now, some before and after pictures. My hair was layered so the longest piece was over 14 inches, but most of the ponytail hair was in the 12 inch range. In the past 4 1/2 years, I've donated about 35 inches of hair to Locks of Love.
I'm not that great at taking my own picture but I think you get the point. :)
