National Donate Your Hair Day

On March 22, more than 120 members of the P&G Family and Cincinnati community cut and donated their hair to benefit the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.

The Beautiful Lengths program makes real-hair wigs for women undergoing cancer treatments. Since its creation in 2006, the program has collected nearly 310,000 ponytails and has helped distribute more than 18,000 free real-hair wigs through American Cancer Society wig banks across the country.

The March 22 event was in partnership with The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s March 2012 production of “Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale.” So, some of the characters came and visited attendees, which is super cute. I put together pics of the event into the below slideshow so you can see how much fun is was!

Turns out, this event is actually a sneak peek of a nationwide event coming up! Pantene is teaming up with Seventeen Magazine for a first-ever “National Donate Your Hair Day” on April 27. They’re encouraging people across the country to cut and donate their hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. So, if you have some lovely locks you’d like to shed before summer, this is a great opportunity to do so for a great cause!
