Also we would like to train and hire more hairdressers, but we must have clients to train on and with.
At present we have clients on our waiting lists- who are unable to afford travel costs/ They are requesting hairdressers to travel to them for professional detangling services.
Fundraiser MISSION: To get people functioning again in life by keeping their hair.
Cutting is not the solution. Hair is a large aspect of our identity.
We are contacted by people internationally.
Others contact us with matted hair due to:
Wheel chair bound,
Healing at home,
Sick in the hospital,
Undergoing cancer treatment,
Coming out of a coma,
Hair product/hairdresser mistakes,
Medication side effects
In exchange for discounted rates for our detangling services, we will video record detangling a clients hair and use the video for training purposes.
Sometimes it could take 2-3 days to detangle a whole head of matted hair that has not been combed for 6 months or a year. So all clients must pay for any required travel and accommodations.
People become depressed, if they aren’t already suffering from depression. The longer the hair is matted and tangled, it causes headaches from the pain and weight on the head. It causes frustration, irritation, and low self esteem.
People are ashamed to go outside of their homes, to work or to even to a salon because people will judge them. And unfortunately most salons and hairdressers reject clients after they criticize or judge the condition of their hair.
