Twists & Locs Salon donates to Cancer Support Network in “Wigs of Love” project
In its second year, Twists & Locs Salon through its “Wigs of Love” Project has donated wigs to survivors and patients of breast cancer.
More than 50% of these were either cervical or breast cancer. Cancer treatment usually comes in the form of chemotherapy, a major side effect of which is hair loss.
As the premier natural hair salon synonymous with modern, professional, and non-harmful hair and beauty treatments, Twists & Locs Salon launched the “Wigs of Love” project in 2020, to provide quality wigs to women who lose their hair due to chemotherapy.
In this year’s donation, wigs made with love by Twists & Locs hair stylists valued at GHC 6,250 were donated to 25 women at an event organized by the Cancer Support Network of Ghana.
Twists & Locs Salon also presented a GHC 2,000 cheque to a cancer patient to aid with her bills.
Speaking at the event, founder and CEO of Twists & Locs Salon, Kuorkor Ayisa said “we know when you are going through these health challenges, sometimes even the stress can make you lose your hair.
So these wigs were made with love by our hairstylists and anytime you wear the wigs remember to glow and celebrate your life”.
President of the Cancer Support Network of Ghana, Akwasi Osei Owusu who spoke on behalf of the women expressed appreciation at the gesture.
