Lele Pons Further Explains Why She Couldn't Donate Her Hair

Lele Pons has faced some backlash over her recent desire to donate her hair.

The 21-year-old social media star cut her long blonde locks with the intent to donate them, but sadly, she learned they didn’t accept color-treated hair.

“The locks of hair shown in the Instagram photo was used as reference to show how many inches I cut,” Lele told Allure. “At the time of the photo, my real hair was being collected to make a ponytail because I had intended on donating it.”

“It has always been a wish of mine to donate my hair to a charity that makes custom wigs for cancer patients,” Lele said. “There are people all over the world that lose their hair due to illness, and I wanted to do something to help make a difference.”

Lele has apologized for the mix-up and told the mag she she’s “discussing potential opportunities with a local hospital” to lend a hand.

Can we all move on from this now?

Lele Pons Clears Up Misunderstanding About Donating Her Hair

Lele Pons Clears Up Misunderstanding About Donating Her Hair

Just a few days ago, Lele Pons surprised everyone when she chopped off her gorgeous long hair — and now, she’s back explaining everything about her cut — right down to accusations that she was using hair extensions in a reveal picture.

Here’s what actually went on — Lele fully intended to donate her locks after the big chop, however, after it happened she learned that she actually couldn’t donate her hair at all.

Not because of the extensions that were featured in the reveal pic (which has since been deleted from her Instagram), but because it was bleached!

The extensions in that reveal pic (that had everyone talking!) were only a prop to show everyone how much she cut off.

“To help clear any assumptions, I cut my hair with the intention of donating it,” Lele addressed everything in a series of tweets later on.

“Sadly after trying, I learned charities who donate wigs don’t accept color treated hair. So I’m finding other ways to help those affected by hair loss b/c of cancer. This is still a priority for me.”

We’re proud of Lele for addressing the situation and can’t wait to see how she plans to give back.

Summer Hairspiration: 7 Crazy Colors Your Fave Celebs Would Endorse

Summer will be in full swing soon, and while many respond to the sweltering weather by chopping their hair, we have another proposition for you (inspired by celebs like Dove Cameron and Bella Thorne): dye it!

We don’t mean dye it blonder. From subtle rose golds to blinding turquoises, the unnatural-color trend is thriving, and celebs are helping it along by dying their hair every color under the sun (or, more accurately, the rainbow.)

We are taking inspiration from your favorite stars with every different hue imaginable to bring you your summer hair possibilities.

Enjoy!! (But if you’re going to dye it at home, make sure you have an adult to help you!)
