Over the weekend I did something that no one thought I would do, or if they thought it they didn’t think I would cut my hair as short. I donated my long locks to Locks of Love. Truth is I have known plenty of people that have died of cancer, I also know one very amazing young woman that has battled Leukemia twice and went through chemotherapy and lost her hair. But to top it all off, late last year we got news that my own daughter my have a birthmark that contained cancer and we might have to go through it with her. This broke my heart in more ways than you can imagine, thankfully earlier this year she had the birthmark scraped from her head and they said it was benign. So together we agreed to donate our hair, I had always wanted to do it just never had but now I really wanted to do it.
On top of the wanting to do this I also NEEDED to have it cut off. See I have really thick hair, which also means when it is long it begins giving you headaches and back pain. Since I knew I had to cut it why not chop off 10″ and donate it to someone that can use my hair. No point in just tossing it all away. Take a peek at the pictures and watch as I chop it off.
If you are planning on cutting your hair and donating it to Locks of Love make sure to call first to see if they do it. Great Clips offers cutting your hair for free if you are donating to Locks of Love. They will also cut and style for $13 which I think it totally worth it.
