Some places won't take it because it is brittle and breaks easily during wig making. Some won't accept it because it won't hold the color applied in manufacturing. Nevertheless, there are options for those wishing to donate gray hair to charity.

At World of Wigs, you can not only donate your gray hair but you can specify a person you want your hair to go to.

Though Pantene Beautiful Lengths will accept gray hair, they amount of gray in the bundle of hair sent can only be a maximum of 5 percent.

Wigs for Kids

Though gray hair is accepted here, Wigs for Kids does not guarantee that all hair sent in to them will be used.
