S5, Ep 20: How to Donate Your Red Hair + Purchase A Red Wig, With Suzanne Chimera + Jordan Fuelberth

August 18, 2023

To kick off our 20th episode this season, we're doing something special today! It will be a different format because we're covering two important topics: how to donate your red hair + redhead wigs. To help us answer your questions, we have 2 different guests on today's episode:

The first guest is Suzanne Chimera. She’s a native New Yorker and President/Co-Founder of HairWeShare. She founded it in 2014 after being a custom wig designer for twenty years. HairWeShare creates custom wigs for children AND adults with medical hair loss. This is important because many wig organizations only make wigs for kids – but HairWeShare makes wigs for adults + kids.

Then, we called Jordan Fuelberth. She’s a 24-year-old natural redhead and works as a certified veterinary technician in Illinois. She has always been a huge supporter of WigsforKids and she feels blessed to be a donor! If you didn’t see her viral hair donation TikTok video with millions, and millions, and millions of views (click here), you’re in for a treat. If you happened to see around 36” of red hair being chopped off on TikTok, it was probably Jordan. She will detail how she donated 1 full yard of her own red hair!

If there is anything you can take away from this podcast, it is that redheads have the power to change lives in some way. It could be donating your unique hair, it could be sending this podcast to a friend or family member NEEDING a wig, and/or it could be donating monetarily to the organizations mentioned.

Jordan's product recommendations + hair tips for growth:

  1. Sugar Bear Hair Vitamin Collagen
  2. Matrix Leave-in Conditioner
  3. Every six months, get a trim
  4. Wash it every 2-3 days (not every day)

Daily, we get an array of questions from social media comments, emails, and direct messages. We thought it would be fun to bring these to the How to be a Redhead podcast! We answer 2-4 questions per podcast. Do you want to send in your questions? Email, or DM us on Instagram @HowtobeaRedhead or TikTok @HowtobeaRedhead.
