A charitable group called Matter of Trust is collecting the hair in a giant warehouse in Florida. It's because of hair's ability to absorb oil while not absorbing water. The hair is stuffed into nylon stockings which can be used as floating booms to contain and soak up the oil -- which threatens to spread into critical wildlife habitat.

Even your dog's hair can be used to help clean up the oil spill. Click here. This doesn't have to be a certain length as with the cancer wig donation program. Men (beards included) and women alike can contribute.
