Welcome to The London Hair Clinic Hair Harvest

As a company dealing with vulnerable patients, anxious and distressed by their hair loss, we take immense satisfaction in restoring the confidence and self-esteem of so many people.

We are constantly in need of hair to make wigs for hair loss sufferers. Our clients are often undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from one of the many forms of alopecia.

We feel that to buy direct from a person is more ethically responsible than to buy hair from a supplier in another country. By buying directly we know that the money we pay goes straight to the seller.

So if you are interested in selling your hair to us:

We emphasize that the hair MUST BE EXTREMELY TIGHTLY SECURED IN A PONYTAIL/PONYTAILS as we need the hair to be root to tip perfect. We cannot accept loose hair. Please do not plait your ponytail(s), as we will need to assess them in their natural condition. Just place the hair in a plastic bag and send the hair to us by post.

Details we need:

Your name, address, telephone number, email address and PayPal email address. It will also help facilitate our dealing with your post by specifying on the envelope ‘Hair Harvest’ or ‘H.H.’ We advise to include the return address on the envelope as well as use Royal Mail signed for or track and trace.

Evaluation

Once your hair has been valued we will contact you via email to let you know how much we are willing to pay for your hair (so please ensure you give us an email address). If you are not happy with the quote, we will send your hair back to you free or charge. If you are willing to sell your hair for the amount, we offer then we will process the payment via PayPal only.

Due to the amount of hair we receive daily, please allow some time for your hair to be valued and up to 4 weeks for the payment to be processed after your acceptance of our offer.

The following is a typical guide to the worth of your hair: 18”+ £15-£150.

When we value hair, it is usually valued based on quality, which accounts for the variation of pricing, for example, although your hair may be 20 inches long the overall quality, including texture, density, colour, and specific hair type need at the time is an important reflection of what we are willing to pay, so we cannot guarantee a high price. Therefore, to avoid disappointment we do not advise you to cut your hair for the sole purpose of receiving a huge amount.

Minimum requirements for hair to be accepted

Length: Minimum 18” of usable hair (often the bottom 2-4 inches have to be cut off due to dryness and split ends).

  • Hair can not be too dry, frizzy or have too many layers as this renders the hair unusable.
  • We can not accept hair that is in wefts or hair that has been used as an extra attachment.
  • It is unaccepted to send hair that is in a plait, matted, wet or heavily processed chemically.
  • The presentation in which the hair is sent is also important, hair must be securely tied using a hairband or elastic into a ponytail. If more than one ponytail this is okay.

Please note that the above is a guide and not a guarantee as the valuation depends upon the quality of the hair. We will return the hair if you are not satisfied with our valuation.

When making a wig, the hair is knotted, producing a four-inch return hair, meaning that individual hair length must be greater than fourteen inches.

To avoid disappointment- Please grow your hair longer than 18″ before cutting. The prices are significantly better for hair of 18″ and above, so try to grow your hair as long as possible.

We cannot accept hair shorter than 18″ as the hair will not be long enough to produce a wig. Hair that is dry or that has too many split ends cannot be accepted either as the quality will not be good enough to make exceptional wigs for our clients. Also, if we have already had an excessive supply of a particular colour or texture, we would not be able to purchase more. Therefore, we have to say that some hair that doesn’t match up with our requirements will be returned.

Please note that the prices above refer to Caucasian or European hair. We do buy Asian hair although the prices achieved will be less.

Please note that we grade the hair received in terms of quality which accounts for the variation in price range. The total length of hair that you send to us may not reflect the price outlined above as we may need to cut off any part of the hair that is not of acceptable quality for making the wigs and hair pieces. Therefore, once we have processed and graded the hair, the length of hair that can be used will be valued for the price of your hair.

Please note that the weight of the hair is also important.

10% of the value of your hair will be donated to The Katie Piper Foundation, a charity that funds hair replacement systems to those suffering from hair loss due to scarring alopecia. Quite often the hair we buy from you will be used to provide hair systems for such alopecia sufferers.

If hair DOES MEET the above requirements please send your hair in with the following details: Full Name, Contact Number, Address and your PayPal details.

If your hair DOES NOT MEET the above requirements we will be unable to purchase your hair and it will be returned to you.
