    Did I hear on TV that The Hair that is dyed can not be used ?

    • joe says:

      They don’t use the short hair anyway, that’s why they were told they could dye it. The girls with long hair donated their locks which were not dyed.

    Well done. Would be nice if the folks could donate that to govt school charitable events that have a good cause. some govt schools go n fund raise n cant get a 10th of that. Whats the secret.
