Local salon has a solution to oil spill

MADISON (WKOW) -- Here's one way anyone can help clean up oil from the Gulf of Mexico oil well disaster.

You can donate some (or all) of your hair.

Anui Salon in Madison is collecting hair from the floor and shipping it to a company in San Francisco that's wrapping the hair in special containers that can be used to soak up oil.

Other salons and non-profit organizations around the U.S. are doing the same thing.

Anui estimates it could collect several pounds of hair a day.  Its collection event runs through May 14.
