Henkel hosts hair donation event at its Stamford-based North America Consumer Goods Headquarters in support of Locks of Love

Henkel employees donate hair in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Schwarzkopf® sponsored the event through Million Chances, a global initiative supporting non-profit organizations that empower women around the world to build a successful personal and professional future.

Henkel, a leading provider of haircare solutions, hosted a hair donation event at its North American Consumer Goods Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nine Henkel employees received haircuts from a Henkel stylist, each donating at least 10 inches of their hair to national nonprofit organization Locks of Love, which provides the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children in need.  

Schwarzkopf®, one of Henkel’s brands and a global leader in hair cosmetics, sponsored the event through its Million Chances initiative. Schwarzkopf founded Million Chances in 2016 to work with international and local organizations to support projects that empower women around the world to build a successful personal and professional future. As part of Million Chances in North America, Schwarzkopf has partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and recently gave a $10,000 donation to the organization.   
Xenia Barth, Vice President of Marketing - Hair at Henkel, stated, “We are thrilled by the generosity from several of our employees for such an important cause, and are excited for the opportunity to give back to our community and those in need. Schwarzkopf is committed to bringing support and attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”

This past spring, in addition to presenting a donation in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Henkel packed 50 Hope Kits full of comforting and helpful items for women undergoing treatment. These kits were delivered to breast cancer patients at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Nine Henkel employees donated 10+ inches of their hair to Locks of Love through the Schwarzkopf Million Chances hair donation event.
