Swank Prepares For The Big Chop
Hilary Swank is taking extra special care of her hair - so she can donate it to a cancer sufferer.
The Boys Don't Cry star will have her locks chopped off on the Oprah Winfrey Show in America later this month (Oct07) as part of hair product giant Pantene's Beautiful Lengths charity campaign.
The charity push aims to encourage women and men to cut and donate their hair for wigs to aid cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
And Swank is making sure that whoever gets her hair will be more than proud.
She tells USA Today, "I've been growing my hair for months, so it's super long and super healthy.
"I've gotten my conditioning treatments every four weeks. Everyone is commenting on my hair and how it's long and pretty and healthy and shiny. All the better for a woman in need."
