Even my hair. You know how I got a haircut a few weeks back? Anyway, I asked the stylist to save the chopped off part so I could donate it. I was hoping to find a local institution to accept it, but as yet, no charity organization here is creating wigs for people who suffered hair loss due to disease or treatment. I called the Philippine Cancer Society and they referred me to Reyes Haircutters. Upon calling Reyes, I was told that the hair donation campaign they had before was for the oil spill near Guimaras (hair adsorbs - yes, in this case, ADsorb and not ABsorb - oil) and that it was over. They would donate a peso to the Philippine Cancer Society for every business they got, but since I had already gotten my haircut elsewhere, too late for my one-peso contribution.
Anyway, I found out about Locks of Love and was really touched by it. I was actually thinking of cancer patients when I decided to save my hair, but this makes more sense. Hair grows back after chemotherapy, but alopecia areata is a long-term condition. I just hope my mutant hair is acceptable and that those dry, frizzy strands can actually help make a decent hairpiece.
