LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV) - Some east Texas salons are doing their part to help clean up the oil spill in the gulf, by collecting hair! At several Longview salons, workers are collecting human and pet hair to be used to help with the gulf oil spill. The hair will be sent to a company that makes absorbent mats out of it. The salons asking all who can to bring their pet hair or come in a get a haircut for the cause. With more than three million gallons of oil already in the gulf anyone's hair can be of help. If you want to pitch in, you can check with your area salon or barber shop to see if they are part of the effort.
