Well I know you are on pins and needles so I'll just go ahead and let you know.........
It's the most I've gotten my hair cut at one time since my Kindergarten bowl cut.
My hair is really thick so the stylist had to put my hair in 5 mini ponytails and razor them off. I was slightly scared when I saw the first 9 inch ponytail come off. Then I remembered that my mom had to have her whole head shaved so I figured I could power through this.
So now I have short hair and can cross of #20 on my 30 for 30 list which I changed to 'do something daring with my hair'. I think that getting a foot (she had to cut more to even it all up after the ponytails came off) of hair cut off is pretty daring. At least for me.
I got my hair cut 9 inches so that I could donate it to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. This program is similar to Locks of Love but gives wigs to the American Cancer Society wig bank for people who cannot afford wigs. I figured that now was as good a time as any for me to donate as my hair is slowly but surely turning gray and you have to have less than 5% gray hair to donate to this program. So hopefully someday someone will get to give my hair a second chance.
There was a fundraiser at my church and 38 people donated their ponytails, so that should make at least a few wigs.
I'm still trying to adapt to life as a short haired person. My hair is too short for a ponytail at this point which is my go-to style. Today I have attempted a headband.
Have you ever donated your hair....
Or done something daring with it?
