Valdosta - Women fighting overseas are about to get a special delivery from a Valdosta salon.

The Ladies on the line campaign, started at Between Friends Salon, has been raising money and collecting hair care and beauty products for a month to send to deployed military women.

They say the women don't have proper hair care while deployed and must often cut off inches of hair when returning from war.

So far, they've collected thousands of dollars in products to be shipped out.  "I will be dropped off tomorrow morning to be shipped off to our overseas locations to the addresses that we picked up scattered all over the middle east. I'm sure we are going to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Africa," says Jessica Piper, Ladies on the Line founder.

These boxes will be sent to 75 women from Moody who will distribute it to their bases overseas.

They'll continue sending products as long as the donations keep coming in. They are hoping to find new drop off locations in Bainbridge and Albany.
