Ever since I donated my hair to Locks of Love last year both of my girls have wanted to do it. BabyGirl got to be the first out of them to do it this weekend. I must say as the two of us waited outside the shop before cutting her hair I repeatedly asked if she was sure. I knew this was a big thing and cutting that much hair off would be huge. I mean am I right? A girl loves her hair, especially when she’s taken such good care of it.
As you can see it had gone just a little past the middle of her back and it is thin. I wasn’t 100% sure she was ready for this. But she made sure to tell me she was. She even told me she wanted to make sure that someone that didn’t have hair would get some. She also told me, “Mom it is just hair, it’ll grow back.” No truer statement. Honestly I think it was harder for me to watch her cut it even though I was proud, I know how much care was put into making her hair that long to get it chopped off. She was all smiles before and after, even now when I look at her she grins from ear to ear. She did such a great thing and for that I am proud.
Can you see the joy she has? Even with her hair in hand she is smiling. She also says she knows she looks cuter now. The kids played a game of trying to figure out which little actress she reminded me of. Figured it out, the little girl on Ramona and Beezus. I know there is another from when I was younger but they’d never figure that out. Have you ever donated your hair or had a child do it? If you are my friend on Facebook you have probably seen my pictures from when I donated my hair a year ago.
Great Clips is the store we went to in order to donate her hair (and mine when I did it) because if they cut all 10 inches (no less) you get it done for free. Make sure your hair is washed before going in. Of course since she was doing it I told them to give it a style so it cost us a little bit but not much and for the price it was totally worth it. Very proud of my little girl!
