ShareCut


AarogyaSeva presents ShareCut - Get a free haircut at one of Bangalore’s top salons while donating your beautiful tresses for creating wigs for cancer patients

 

WHAT IS THE SHARE CUT CAMPAIGN?

July 14 - 31, 2019: A two- week long hair donation drive in Bangalore 

 

As easy as 1,2,3…

1.Volunteer to donate your hair
2. Call a partner salon closest to you and make an appointment
3. Go in when your turn arrives, sit back and give from head to heart

 

WHY SHARECUT?

Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of cancer treatment and is feared by men, women and children alike. The loss of hair can have profound effects on a person’s confidence, self-esteem and body image - making an already tough battle, harder still.

With commercially available wigs costing upwards of INR 5,000, putting them out of reach of low-income communities; the ShareCut campaign aims to bring wigs to women and children free of cost in Bangalore.

Our Reward? The smile on their face and the extra little flash of hope and joy in their eyes!

 

WHO CAN DONATE HAIR?

●Minimum length - 6 inches measured tip to tip
●Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum of 6 inches
●Coloured, permed and grey hair is accepted
●Hair must be washed and dried prior to donation
●Hair bundled in a ponytail /braid is accepted - loose hair/hair swept off the floor cannot be used.
