Kiddiwigs are hand made wigs for children suffering sever hair loss through illness.

Consultations and fitting will take place at our specialist hair loss centre in Accrington. 

Each wig will be made to measure & styled to suit. 

How can you help?

Hair donations are a fantastic way to help us on our journey to providing free wigs for children suffering with hair loss. Human hair wigs can be very expensive and not all parents can afford them, but that doesn’t mean the children should have to go without. Don’t throw your old hair extensions away, we can use them too! Drop off your old extensions at any Capelli Remi salon.

As much as we would love to, Capelli Remi regrets that it cannot afford to give new hair away for free, however, with your hair donations and support, we are more than willing to donate our skills and time to create life changing wigs for children suffering throughout the UK. 

Guidelines on acceptable donations:

  • All hair donated to us must be in excellent condition
  • Ideally, we need hair that is 16" (41cm) or longer
  • We can accept a minimum length of 7”/17cm 
  • Clean, dry hair, from any gender (please do not send us wet hair - it will not dry properly and is not usable)
  • Great condition (no split ends) and of any natural colour
  • Straight, curly or wavy
  • We are happy to accept hair extensions
  • Permanently dyed;* bleached/highlighted hair (*if dye is of a natural colour and overall condition of hair is good)
  • Ponytail/s cut a maximum of 5 years ago, if preserved and in good condition.
  • Currently we can only accept hair from within the UK.

Please, no hair that is:

  • Less than 7”/17cm long
  • Dyed an unnatural colour (blue, purple, etc) or has been dyed using a semi permanent hair dye. 
  • Henna-dyed hair
  • Dreadlocks cannot be used in our wigs.  Part of the preparation to blend hair donations together involves combining individual strands of hair.  All hair must be able to be combed to separate these individual hairs
  • Grey hair. Kiddiwigs are aimed at children and teenagers under 15 years.

Donating your hair:

  • Wash and DRY your hair (we cannot accept wet hair - it does not dry in the post and will not be suitable if you have dried it after cutting on a radiator or other heat source).
  • Do not use conditioner or styling products.
  • Put your dry hair into a ponytail/s.
  • Secure at both ends with a hair band, and one halfway down.
  • Ask your hairdresser to cut above the top band.
  • Put the cut ponytail/s into a cardboard or heavyweight paper envelope.
  • Drop hair off at any Capelli Remi store or please use the contact form on the website to request a hair donation slip. 
  • If posting, please send to 4 Church Street, Accrington, BB52EH.
