LOVE LOCKS: Donating Your Hair for a Cause
We may not ease the pain Cancer brings but we hope to give them a thing or two to smile about. And this endeavor will not be possible without your help.We may not ease the pain Cancer brings but we hope to give them a thing or two to smile about.

Hope is a hand extended to someone in need. This is what we aim to be able to give when we thought of LOVE LOCKS – A Hair Donation Drive for the Benefit of Cancer Patients in the Philippines. Souqpinoy.com always finds ways to meet its mission of empowering every Filipino individual overseas. In observance of the month of love this February and in observance of World Cancer Day, what better way to observe them both by helping in our own little way the women and children afflicted with Cancer.
A clause from Cuts Against Cancer struck a beautiful chord in our heart —-No one gets rich from humanitarian work. It’s a labor of love from the heart and soul. It’s an honest and humble pursuit. But, it’s the smile on the face of a child or a woman who has Cancer that makes it worth it for us. It’s enriching. It’s priceless. We will not get profit from doing this; after all, we simply campaigned for people to gather for a cause. But we believe that this early, our hearts are already overwhelming with joy that we took part in a worthy cause.
We may not ease the pain Cancer brings but we hope to give them a thing or two to smile about. And this endeavor will not be possible without your help.
We invite you to take part in our hair donation drive; just visit our partner salon and have your haircut done by them. We teamed up with Lolita Ladies Beauty Salon, located in Hamarain, Deira, because we want to ensure the cleanliness and accurate measurement of the hair to be donated. The salon will be collecting a minimal fee to cover for the cost of shampooing and blow-drying. The service fee of the staff is totally free!
>Kindly take note of the following hair donation specifications:
- Hair must be clean and completely dry before it is cut.
- Hair SHOULD NOT be colored, undergone perming and/or rebonding. Processed hair is too dry, weak, brittle and coarse. It breaks, tangles, and sheds easily; splitting ends during the processing of the prosthesis.
- Hair should be AT LEAST 12 INCHES. It presents tremendous difficulty if the hair strands are too short to sew and secure to the Medical Cap.
- Should hair be LAYERED, shortest strand of hair must at least be 12 inches.
- Should hair be part-processed, the processed part must be cut off and the remaining hair would still be enough for the minimum length of 12 inches.
- Hair must be bundled in a ponytail or braid before it is cut.
We will be sending all donated hair to the Philippines through the generosity of LBC Express. They were also more than willing to help when they learned about this endeavor.
So what are you waiting for; spread the word, invite your colleagues and share our event so that it will echo to others. Let us choose to give hope; send hair locks filled with love.
