In the spirit of positive vibes and all round good cheer we wanted to share a post that runs a little deeper than hair tutorials today. Shopping, eating, drinking and being totally merry are all great things but giving something back can be good too. Today we’re going to share some hair related ways you can support a charity this Christmas and earn your place on the nice list…
Donate Your Hair
If you have super long hair and are thinking of making a change for the new year then you might want to consider donating it. Locks of Love make wigs for children under 21 who have lost their hair. Most wigs are too big for children’s heads which is what makes these custom ones so important in giving them back their confidence. The hair needs to be a minimum of 10 inches from tip to tip in order to donate, so this might not apply to everyone but it’s a lovely cause to support if it does. (Homemade hair styling gel )
Gift Hair Products That Donate to Charity
Brands collaborate with charities all the time to come up with new and exciting ways to raise money for a good cause. One of our faves is PHB Ethical Beauty who donate 20% of their profits to help charities in the UK including Orbis, Sense, The Trailblazer Foundation and The Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary. They have an amazing range of haircare counting their Clarifying Hair Conditioning Mask which is a beautiful stocking filler for any hair addict. Paul Mitchell’s Neon run is likewise a decent yell; their items help to bring issues to light and support for casualties of tormenting. Every one of their items are focused at a more youthful group of onlookers as well, similar to their new Emoji styler run which is flawless on the off chance that you have young people to purchase for. Ultimately, Aveda’s Light the Way Candle gives 100% of the RRP to Global Greengrants; a non-benefit association that attempts to enhance ecological issues all around the globe. Despite the fact that not a haircare item it is still by a haircare mark and is made with fundamental oils and normally inferred soy wax making it the ideal extravagance blessing that backings a decent purpose as well.
Ask for Donations
The idea of swapping a Christmas present in exchange for a charity donation might sound like the worst thing ever at first but it’s definitely a lovely thing to do. We’ve all got so much nowadays and for most of us Christmas presents aren’t everyday necessities but more special luxuries. Asking your friends and family to donate to a charity instead is an easy way to raise money for a good cause and spread the word about a charity you support.
Donate your Unused Haircare Products
This might be an awkward thing to say but we’ve all had Christmas gifts that we’re not super keen on. If you’re not going to use something definitely think about donating it. There are so many organisations that take in gifts for refugee centres that help women all over the world. Having beauty products can be such an uplifting thing for women in difficult situations who can’t afford special treats.
