On Friday, July 16, participants at the Clearwater to Salmon River Relay for Life at Grangeville High School will be cutting ponytails in celebration of cancer survivors. The ponytails will be donated to the “Beautiful Lengths” program, funded by Pantene and the American Cancer Society.
Those interested in participating should begin preparing hair now. If you have questions, contact Tami Quick, 208-983-6505.
To make the hair most beautiful, realistic and durable for wigs, donated hair must meet the requirements below:
Donated hair must be a minimum of 8 inches long (measure hair from just above the elastic band of the ponytail to the ends).
Wavy/curly hair texture is fine—you may straighten hair to measure.
Hair should be freshly washed and completely dry, without any styling products.
Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated.
Hair may not be more than 5 percent gray.
