I had heard a while ago that “Locks of Love” was a scam, and they made wigs for celebrities, etc. Today I find out that it is untrue. They are a legitimate organization. The only time that they sell the hair at market value is when the hair is gray, short, or otherwise unsuitable for kids. That helps out with the cost of manufacturing.
My friend from work knows a person who works for them. I also visited the website and it all seems to check out. I’m pleased. If anyone has any info about where/why that rumor may have been started, let me know. I forget who told me, so I can’t really go to the source.
