As Polynesian dancers, Andrea Sweet and her mom have always viewed long hair as a powerful part of who they are. So when Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago, they appreciated firsthand the impact that the disease and chemo have on a woman's sense of identity.
That's why Andrea decided to turn the tables on the "hair as power" myth. By choosing to donate more than a foot of her tresses to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program, she found a way to acknowledge her personal strength every day — while honoring her amazing mom at the same time.
Watch this video for a closer look at Andrea's journey to create a wig for a woman fighting cancer. Then visit the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Facebook page to learn more and find out how you can get involved.
