Donate your locks

This past week we have celebrated women’s day, which led to masses protesting, manifesting, and supporting equality between men and women, as well as give an initiative to further appreciate the beauty of women across the globe. By beauty, we mean the inner light and love, the courage, the greatness, the power, the strength, the caring and all giving that every woman holds.This day was also used to support women who struggle with body images, in order to remind us all how beautiful and unique we all are.

The power that we hold as women should be used to its maximum potential. We should therefore be helping each other as much as we can, and this can be done by giving back. In today’s day and age, more of us are being affected by cancer and other illnesses that cause hair loss. From radiation or chemotherapy, women can feel less beautiful. Wigs are often purchased in order to feel somewhat close to how they were before. There are several wonderful organizations that collect hair donated across the world, which turn the hair into wigs for cancer patients.

There are several conditions in order to donate your hair. It has to be a minimum of 8”, contain no dyes, bleaches or chemicals, and no more than 5% gray hairs. In order to prepare your hair well  for the donation, you must make sure you condition your hair regularly in order to keep it healthy and strong. Avoid brushing your hair when it is wet as well as blow drying.

A great way to keep your hair healthy, if you are interested in helping a woman feel beautiful during her time of pain and struggle, is to moisturize your hair with argan oil. Here are some benefits to using argan oil. Argan oil hydrates the hair in a natural way, making hair softer and reducing roughness. Argan oil penetrates into the hair shaft and enhances the elasticity of hair which helps prevent breakage. Natural antioxidants present in Argan oil strengthen the hair by repairing damage. The Vitamin E in Argan oil makes it a tremendous agent for hair treatment. Many external and internal agents like heat, over styling and oxidization damage the hair. Vitamin E present in Argan oil is very useful in restoring the natural hair and renewing and repairing the damage caused by heat, chemicals or other destructive agents.
