We can make an appointment to cut your hair at one of our participating salons or we can receive it by mail at 37 Ocean Street, South Portland, Maine 04106 c/o Debra Porter Hair Matters.
If we provide the finished cut we request that our donor client shampoo, but not condition, and thoroughly dry their hair before the scheduled appointment. The charge for donation and finished cut is $25.00.
We encourage hair donors to write a personalized letter of encouragement to the future recipient sharing any stories of inspiration or hope. It is our desire to make heartfelt connections wherever possible and to assure our donors that their gift has made an important difference!
We request a minimum of eight inches from the shortest layer. We do accept any percentage of grey as well as chemically process and/or colored hair. The hair will be banded at the top and bottom and ideally braided so the strands are kept smooth and flowing all in the same direction.
Our website is being upgraded but you can find additional information at www.hairmatters2me.org or contact me directly at (207) 216-1016.
Thank you for your giving, loving spirit!
