A style change to help some kids

I’ve had long hair for a couple of years now. At first, I just wanted to have longer hair so I could braid it. Then, I wanted it long for a friend’s wedding. Then it became a game with my hair stylist – let’s find out how long my hair will grow!

Long Hair Don't Care

But, last month I just couldn’t take it anymore. I needed it gone. So, I made an appointment with Dawn last week.

After a bunch of research, I decided to donate my hair to Children With Hair Loss, a charity that helps children who have medically-related hair loss. Their mission is “to empower these children to become whole again by making hair replacement available to those who may be financially challenged and might otherwise not have a means of obtaining the hair they want and need.”

I chose this charity over others for a couple of reasons:

  1. They accept color treated hair
  2. They never charge recipients for wigs (yes, there is a charity out there that charges children with health issues for wigs)

Time to chop the hair!

Of course, I couldn’t JUST get my hair cut – I needed a vibrant red color for the summer!

I was able to donate about 11 inches of hair – and, I still have enough hair for a pony tail! I love the new color, too.
