MAKING THE KINDEST CUT OF ALL The Story Behind Pantene
MAKING THE KINDEST CUT OF ALL
The Story Behind Pantene Beautiful Lengths
2 in 5 women will develop cancer in their lifetime*. For so many of those women, the stigma
of hair loss as a side effect of cancer treatment is especially overwhelming. In Canada,
it is estimated that 77,200 Canadian women will be diagnosed with cancer in 2007*.
Pantene Beautiful Lengths was created to support women during the greatest fight of their
lives. Pantene is passionate about women’s hair and women’s health and the goal of this
campaign is to help women regain some of their dignity, confidence and sense of self.
What you will need:
•
•
•
•
•
2 elastic bands
1 plastic bag (zipper lock bags are recommended)
1 large envelope
Stylist instructions (if going to a salon)
Ruler or measuring tape
Are you ready to make the cut?
There are specific hair requirements that are necessary to
ensure that your donated hair can be made into wigs for
women battling cancer, so please review the requirements
listed below. Frequently asked questions are posted on
www.pantene.ca if you wish to learn more about any
specific restriction.
Hair Requirements:
•
•
•
•
•
The ponytail you cut must be at least 8 inches or 20.5 cm
long, from just above the elastic band to ends.
Hair must be unprocessed: it cannot have been
bleached, permanently coloured, relaxed, permed,
highlighted or otherwise chemically treated.
Hair can be coloured with vegetable dyes, rinses and
semi-permanent dyes and still be eligible.
Wavy/curly hair texture is acceptable – you may
straighten the hair to measure
Hair cannot have more than 5% grey

Hair Donation Instructions
Note: It is helpful to have someone else cut your hair for you. You can download
the Stylist Instructions that we would recommend you bring with you to your
salon when you schedule your appointment to make the cut.
1.
Hair must be clean, shampooed and/or conditioned, without any styling,
hairspray or additional hair products. Hair must also be completely dry.
2. Gather hair at the nape of the neck.
3. Create a ponytail using an elastic band. Ensure the band is tight around the
hair to keep the hair together after cutting. If the hair comes out of the band it
will not be usable. A second hair band can be placed around the middle of the
ponytail to help keep the hair together.
4. Ensure that the elastic band is just below where you want to cut your hair.
5. Measure the length of the ponytail from the elastic band to the tips, ensuring
hair is at least 8 inches or 20.5 cm long. Donations shorter than 8 inches will not
be used, as it’s too short for making a wig.
6. Cut the hair just above the elastic band such that the elastic band remains on
the ponytail after cutting and keeps cut hair together. Do not wash or style the
ponytail in any way after it has been cut off.
7.
Place the ponytail, kept intact with the elastic band, in a plastic bag and seal tightly.
8. Place the plastic bag with the ponytail in a large envelope and either use the eLabel
provided and tape it to the envelope, or use a stamp and mail your donation to:
Pantene Beautiful Lengths
c/o RESOLVE Corporation
P.O. Box 434
2110 Kipling Ave.
Etobicoke Station B, Ontario
M9W 5L4
9. If you would like written acknowledgement of your ponytail donation, please
remember to include your full name and return address with your hair donation.

Thank you for supporting your client in their decision to share her
precious hair with women in Canada fighting cancer.
As a hair stylist whose client is cutting her hair for Beautiful Lengths,
consider this sad fact: 2 in 5 women will get cancer in their lifetime*.
You know very well the intimate relationship women have with their hair.
And you certainly know how much anxiety and fear hair loss can cause.
Many of your clients have already been touched by this disease. If
you have other clients whose hair is ready to donate now (or could
be ready with a little more growing time) please consider telling them
about Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Alternatively, people are able to give a
monetary donation if they want to be involved, yet are unable to donate
their hair.
