Donate hair to help mitigate the oil spill

Here’s a great way to use your head, without much brain strain. Donate your hair to help protect the gulf coast beaches being soiled by the BP oil spill.

By now you may have heard that one unique way to help reduce damage from oil spills is to send in your freed locks to help make oil booms.

Or even better, get your hair salon to donate all the hair that they spill every day.

The hair is used to fill the oil booms or to make hair mats that capture and contain oil as it washes ashore. (See the video posted below for how that works)
