If you've peeked at our Instagram lately, you've likely seen the radiant faces of our team members. Among them, our social responsibility manager, Adebelle, is renowned for her infectious smile and her signature silky, flowing locks. But hold onto your hats, because Adebelle is gearing up for a remarkable transformation – she's about to part ways with a significant portion of her hair!
Now, you might be wondering, why would someone voluntarily bid farewell to such gorgeous locks? What if we told you that this bold move is all for a truly remarkable cause?
Less than half of women get to enjoy a full head of hair throughout their lives. Various factors, from serious illnesses and chronic stress to medications and conditions like alopecia, can lead to hair loss. For those grappling with these challenges, a well-crafted wig made from human hair can be a lifeline, boosting their self-esteem and rekindling hope.
Recently, we had the privilege of sitting down with Adebelle to delve into her motivations for this incredible act of generosity.
"I give my hair donations to 'Recycle Your Hair,' a remarkable non-profit initiative that gathers wigs for cancer patients in Singapore."
"Over the past eight years, I've contributed three ponytails. However, 2022 marks my fourth donation."
"Well, it turns out my hair is quite unique, making it challenging to find hair that matches its colour, texture, and length for wig-making. It takes six ponytails to craft a single wig, and I was determined to keep donating until my first ponytail became part of a wig. As the years rolled on, I began to enjoy the transformation from super long hair to a shorter style – it gives me a fresh look now and then, which is undeniably fun to experiment with. By the way, my first ponytail from 2013 was only recently transformed into a wig in December 2021."
"The hair must be virgin, untouched by dyes, perms, or any chemical treatments."
"Hair donation has gained momentum in recent years, so you can likely find a hair donation centre near you with ease if you're interested. If you're eager for a fresh style and want to contribute to an incredible cause simultaneously, don't hesitate to take the plunge and embrace a shorter 'do!"
