MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minneapolis woman says she has gone for more than 30 years without a haircut. But that amazing record came to end so she could donate her hair to make wigs for people who are losing their own hair during cancer treatments.

“After my sister had breast cancer, I was going to cut off my hair and donate it to Locks of Love so they could make a wig, but Locks of Love doesn’t take highlighted hair,” said Jools Brandt.

Brandt found a place in the United Kingdom that takes highlighted hair called Princess Trust.

“I decided I was going to donate my hair and it’s gonna take me not quite so long to wash it anymore,” she said. “Oh, it’s gonna be so weird.”

One of the reasons Brandt had her milestone haircut on Thursday is that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and she hopes others will consider a hair donation.
