Hair Care Kota Kinabalu

Sharing hair is caring

KOTA KINABALU: Many young ladies especially teenagers with long hair are willing to spend time and effort to groom their crowning glory and make sure it stays healthy, shiny and beautiful.

For those whose hair grows slower than average, it is even more difficult to part or even trim their long hair.

According to a study, the average hair growth rate of Asian females is about six inches per year. However, some 300 students of the Sabah Tshung Tsin Secondary School here did not think twice when they were approached by a non-governmental organisation – Stellavingze International & StarLadies Hope – to donate their hair to help cancer patients regain their confidence.

A student Chong Wei Kee who has been keeping her hair waist length for two years said she was touched by the sharing given by founder of Stellavingze, Datuk Stella Chin, during the Hair for Hope function at their school on Monday.

“I love my hair a lot and since it took ages for my hair to grow to this length, I treasure it more but to know that patients deal with hair loss everyday and losing their confidence while battling cancer is really sad,” she said.
