I made the "big chop"!

For years I've wanted to donate my hair.  It's so flippin thick that I know it'll go farther than the average donation.  I have been growing it out for about 18 months, but I just could not take all this hair in 100+ degree weather for another summer.  Soooo, today was the day for the "BIG CHOP"

BEFORE



The BIG CHOP!

My hairdresser, Mary Jane, and my first ponytail donation-


AFTER:



I'll be honest, I don't love my hair after the cut, I don't even like it.  It's TOO short and I look like a mushroom head. BUT I am finally able to donate not one 10" ponytail, but 4 ponytails of hair.  WOOT WOOT!  So, yeah, I look like a mushroom head and I hate it, but it's just hair and it'll grow back; and I, hopefully, helped give a little something to someone who's fighting a great fight.

PS  I really wanted my hair to go to a cancer fighter and I learned from a little research that Locks for Love mostly makes wigs for kids with Alopecia, which is a VERY worthy cause, but not what I was looking for.  The American Cancer Society only accepts donations through wigsforkids.org and Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.  I chose to donate to Beautiful Lengths since they only need a minimum of 8" and Wigs For Kids requires 12".  Visit the links if you'd like to make a donation as well.
