Pantene Beautiful Lengths has been proud to partner with both the American and Canadian Cancer Societies to provide free, real-hair wigs to women living with cancer since 2006. Over the past 12 years, the program has been generously supported by people all over North America with their hair donations, and together we have provided thousands of wigs to women undergoing cancer treatment.
Over the last several years, synthetic-hair technology has vastly improved, giving synthetic hair wigs more of a “real-hair” feel, making them lighter, cooler to wear, and easier to style. With these advancements, synthetic wigs are now the preferred wig choice for cancer patients. This change in patient need has resulted in decreased demand for real-hair wigs at the American and Canadian Cancer Societies, and as a result the time has come to wind down the Beautiful Lengths program.
Hair donations will no longer be accepted after December 31, 2018. Through the passion and generosity of donors all over the US and Canada, we are pleased to share that we are able and committed to meet the future real-hair wig needs of the American and Canadian Cancer Societies for the next four years.
We sincerely thank all the people who selflessly donated their ponytails over the years - we couldn’t have done it without you!
