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"
The BIG CHOP!
(Sorry, the next couple pictures are stretched- I don't know what's wrong with Blogger)
My hairdresser, Mary Jane, and my first ponytail donation-
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.
