Donate Your Gently-Used Hair Care Products

Instead of swapping, why not consider donating your gently-used hair care products to a women's shelter? From now on, I am contemplating doing so with products that haven't worked for me. Here is a link where you can locate the women's shelter nearest you:
Your hair is your most important accessory.

    Thanks for posting that. Hubby and I have faithfully supported one of our local Women and Children's centers for about 20 years, and I think that there's a lot of stuff we waste that someone could really use. Especially in some areas where poorer/abused women don't get to choose their products (may have to use what's in a shelter), it's nice if they can get a variety for ethnic/curly hair, particularly if it's a really good quality product that can be like a momentary luxury/pleasure.
