Hair today, gone tomorrow

I'm donating my hair to locks of love.

I'm donating my hair to locks of love.

Well to be more precise hair today gone today. My physiotherapist suggested I cut some of my way to long hair off. I decided that if I’m going to do that, why not cut enough off to donate to a locks of love type organization 🙂 I’m not really going to use it and someone who needs it can make much better use of it. They needed 10″ and I had that to spare. I think this is a very good cause that basically cost nothings. In some places you aren’t even charged for the haircut. Most of these organizations take the donated hair and make wigs for children who may have lost theirs due to cancer treatments or other diseases.

This is something that grows on its own and as long as you haven’t bleached it you can donate it (though some don’t accept any treatment check to make sure you find one that will accept minimal treatment). Just make sure to braid or tie it, otherwise it’s unusable. While I was at the hairdressers a woman decided on the spot to do the same. She was cutting her hair because of headaches, not to mention having a young child which for some is a great reason to cut it off. Those 10″ only took me 2 years to grow, and in two years from now it could be that long again if I wanted. My cousin who had hair down to the small of her back also did this when she cut her hair. She’s a young mother of 3 and a teacher so the shorter length made sense to her and donating it seemed like the only thing to do. I have to say I envy anyone who got a wig made from her hair. Mine is fairly fine but hers is good and thick 🙂

I recommend this to anyone who has long hair. Even if you only do it once in your life, you’re making a big difference in the life of a child. Men, women and children can all donate their hair and since it grows and grows there really isn’t an excuse to not send that hair to someone who doesn’t have that opportunity. Even better if you pair that up with a cancer fund raising drive where you have people donate money for you to have it cut or even shaved. You can raise awareness for the disease and for locks of love type groups.

after cut and all dry
