Youtube star Lele Pons is in hot water after she forgot to read the fine print when deciding to donate her hair to a cancer charity.
The drama started when Pons shared a picture of herself, chopped off ponytail in hand, and announced that she was donating her hair to charity.
But as one eagle-eyed follower noticed, the roots of her "hair" had the telltale tracks of extensions. Cancer charity Locks of Love, which provides hairpieces to children suffering from illness, advises that donated hair may not be color-treated. According to the website, "Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist. We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. **If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is fine to donate."
