Children’s hair-loss charity launch urgent appeal for help

Manchester-based charity, Little Lady Locks, are calling for urgent support from the hair and beauty industry in order to help more young children affected by hair loss. The charity provides wigs, hair replacement systems, and accessories to children in the UK who have lost their hair.

Ashley Higgins, founder of Little Lady Locks, and hair loss specialist knew the importance of hair replacement systems prior to launching the charity. After hearing the stories of two girls in 2018, Ashley decided to make this her purpose.

She said: “All of their childhood stories are so distressing and hearing about how they got bullied and became isolated from the world, really moved me and I knew then that a change was needed. Families cannot afford the cost of these hair loss systems that change lives and bring their confidence back.”

Ashley explained the current situation and put an urgent appeal out on social media: “We urgently need more funds.  With the rate that the charity is growing, it’s not sustainable and we will collapse. If every one of our followers sets up a monthly donation of £1 this would cover it. I don’t know what else to do other than to ask you all to help.”

The charity has grown considerably and has helped over 150 children to date.  Ashley has developed different options for the children to help conceal their hair loss, from full and partial wigs to hairbands, hats and turbans. 

The service is completely FREE to anyone suffering with hair loss under the age of 18 in the UK.  The demand for the service is increasing so much, and currently without any NHS referrals the charity can only see this growing further. 

L’Oreal and Remi Cachet support the charity with additional products to help colour and care for the hair, as well as Remi Cachet’s award-winning Hair Recycling Scheme that collate unwanted hair extensions from their network of extensionists to be able to recycle into the hair pieces.  The charity then has a team of specialist wig makers around the country that create the bespoke item for the child.
