    *For those interested in donating, please pass on the following information:  they should have washed their hair within the past 24-36 hours and have not used any hair products since washing.  Unfortunately, folks with bleached hair (or hair that was bleached and has since been colored) or who are more than 5% gray are not eligible to donate (knocks me out of the running these days L ) because when they combine the hair for the wigs they dye it to give it a more natural appearance and bleached and gray hair take color differently (yeah, tell me about it…).
