As a general rule, donated hair must be at least 31 cm long. (The "Tsuna Hair Project" is over 15 cm.) What is the origin of this half-hearted value of "31 cm"? Originally, "12 inches (= 30.5 cm) or more" was the standard in the United States, and it is said that it was converted to the metric system in Japan.[3]..However, as of 2021, Locks of Love, which is one of the origins, accepts "12 inches (= 10 cm) or more" instead of 25.4 inches.[4].

In addition, to make a wig for girls, it is necessary to have hair longer than 31 cm.[5], Some recipients are complaining that people who can grow more without cutting at just 31 cm should donate after stretching.[5][6][7].
