Welcome to the CanDonate Hair Foundation



Please read carefully as we have some changes in the criteria. If you don't fit the criteria please do not send the hair, it will not be used.  We will not be able to respond to any questions for a while. Please don't rush to send your hair. We want to avoid an influx of hair arriving all at once.  Thank you for your understanding. 

Accepted hair:

→ They must be clean, dry and not in contact with the ground. 
→ They must have a minimum length of 8-10 inches (20 cm). (curly hair must stay curled when calculating and sending) - the ends have to be healthy, so please cut any dead ends first. We will accept 8-10 inches of healthy hair, otherwise the hair will be too short. 

*important As of August 1st 2022 - we will ask that all hair donations be a minimum of 12 inches. 

Do not cut longer ponytails into smaller ones.  Leave the ponytails as long as possible→ They must be held by elastics  and packaged in a Ziploc® type bag.
→ Colored hair, gray hair or chemically treated hair are accepted.
→ Hair dyed with natural colors (even permanent) and layered and also accepted. Please make sure the hair is healthy and the ends aren't damaged.

Packaging and sending:
Only by post to the following address:
CanDonate Hair Foundation® Program
785 Decarie Blvd.
VSL, Quebec, H4L3L3

Choose a strong envelope and make sure mail delivery is not
with signature (No registered mail). Indeed, we would not be able
to get your package if no one is there to sign.

It should be noted that we are all volunteers. The reason we are not able to send thank-you letters to donors is the lack of budget. We use the money to make the wigs. Thanks for your understanding.

We will not be able to offer certificates anymore.  We will be overwhelmed.  If you are a hairdresser, you can drop hair at a Beauty Star Bédard store.

If you know child in Quebec with cancer, let us know so we can send him a natural wig for free.

All the donated hair is used here in Quebec, and intended for Quebecers.
