According to the Locks of Love website at www.locksoflove.org, the group looks to provide hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under 18 suffering hair loss from any condition or diagnosis. “Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers,” the website said.
Tori said that prior to her haircut, her blondish-brown hair ran to the middle of her lower back. “It took me two or three years to grow it that long.” A Murray beautician shortened her hair into a bob-cut in 30 minutes.
“I wanted to help people with cancer that lost their hair,” said Tori, the daughter of Margie and Donnie Scroggins. “I read about someone who cut their hair for Locks of Love and decided to help them.”
