Welcome to Bloomsbury at The London Hair Clinic Hair Harvest

As a company dealing with vulnerable patients, anxious and distressed by their hair loss, we take immense satisfaction in restoring the confidence and self-esteem of so many people.

We are constantly in need of hair to make wigs for hair loss sufferers. Our clients are often undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from one of the many forms of alopecia.

We feel that to buy direct from a person is more ethically responsible than to buy hair from a supplier in another country. By buying directly we know that the money we pay goes straight to the seller.

So if you are interested in selling your hair to us:

We emphasize that the hair MUST BE EXTREMELY TIGHTLY SECURED IN A PONYTAIL/PONYTAILS as we need the hair to be root to tip perfect. We cannot accept loose hair. Please do not plait your ponytail(s), as we will need to assess them in their natural condition. Just place the hair in a plastic bag and send the hair to us by post.

Please see the video above which demonstrates the process for harvesting your hair.

Details we need:

Your name, address, telephone number, email address and PayPal email address. It will also help facilitate our dealing with your post by specifying on the envelope ‘Hair Harvest’ or ‘H.H.’ We advise to include the return address on the envelope as well as use Royal Mail signed for or track and trace.


We will value your hair within 14 days and phone/email or text to let you know how much we are willing to pay for your hair. If you are not happy with the quote, we will send your hair back to you free or charge. If you are willing to sell your hair for the amount, we offer then we will process the payment via PayPal.
Please allow up to 14 days for the payment to be processed after your acceptance of our offer.

The following is a typical guide to the worth of your hair:

16-18 inches: £50-£150
19 inches and above: £60-£200

Minimum requirements for hair to be accepted

Minimum requirements for hair to be accepted

Length: Minimum 16” of usable hair (often the bottom 2-4 inches have to be cut of due to dryness and split ends)

Limited Exception: Hair cannot be too dry and/ or have too manylayers (as this renders the hair unusable)

Unacceptable: Heavily processed, curly, wet, plaited or braided hair can’t be purchased.

Presentation: Hair must be securely tied in a ponytail.

Please note that the above is a guide and not a guarantee as the valuation depends upon the quality of the hair. We will return the hair if you are not satisfied with our valuation.

When making a wig, the hair is knotted, producing a four-inch return hair, meaning that individual hair length must be greater than twelve inches.

To avoid disappointment- Please grow your hair longer than 16″ before cutting. The prices are significantly better for hair of 16″ and above, so try to grow your hair as long as possible.

We cannot accept hair shorter than 16″ as the hair will not be long enough to produce a wig. Hair that is dry or that has too many split ends cannot be accepted either as the quality will not be good enough to make exceptional wigs for our clients. Also, if we have already had an excessive supply of a particular colour or texture, we would not be able to purchase more. Therefore, we have to say that some hair that doesn’t match up with our requirements will be returned.

Please note that the prices above refer to Caucasian or European hair. We do buy Asian hair although the prices achieved will be less.

Please note that we grade the hair received in terms of quality which accounts for the variation in price range. The total length of hair that you send to us may not reflect the price outlined above as we may need to cut off any part of the hair that is not of acceptable quality for making the wigs and hair pieces. Therefore, once we have processed and graded the hair, the length of hair that can be used will be valued for the price of your hair.

Please note that the weight of the hair is also important.

10% of the value of your hair will be donated to The Katie Piper Foundation, a charity that funds hair replacement systems to those suffering from hair loss due to scarring alopecia. Quite often the hair we buy from you will be used to provide hair systems for such alopecia sufferers.

If hair DOES MEET the above requirements please send your hair in with the following details: Full Name, Contact Number, Address and the Name the cheque is to be payable to.

If your hair DOES NOT MEET the above requirements we will be unable to purchase your hair and it will be returned to you.
