Weight of Hair

Although almost everyone was aware of the fact that chemotherapy causes hair loss, it was not until ICT initiated the hair donation programme on a mass scale, involving the famous Ramani Fernando Salons that every person realised that wigs were imported and some people would actually send their hair overseas as a donation to make wigs and the cost of such a wig was exorbitant. The campaign titled ‘Your Hair Can Help Someone Who no Longer has Hair’ was officially launched on 20th of July 2017.

Special Hair Donation Camps Conducted

So many people in Sri Lanka have watched their lustrous locks go under the blades of a scissor and fall to the ground for a cause – cancer. For them, this one act, they felt, could inspire many to donate their tresses to make wigs for those who are undergoing chemotherapy that results in hair loss. It is this act of kindness that has given the opportunity to provide a customized natural hair wig.

Apart from the daily collection of hair at the 15 Ramani Fernando Salons – hair donation camps were conducted on an annual basis.
