I started growing my hair a couple years ago, and kept growing it so I would be able to do something fancy with it for our wedding. When I went to get my hair cut today, I knew I wouldn't get it chopped off, but didn't think about Locks of Love until I was paying. I've had the same stylist for years, so she knows how long I've tried to keep my hair growing. I'm set on getting it cut short again so I can donate it to those suffering, but just not sure when I want to chop it off.
I decided on a trim (2inches) and got a few more layers added
When I first donated my hair, you had to have at least 11 inches and it couldn't be colored or layered. When I asked my stylist today, she said the requirements have changed, and you only need to have at least 7 inches and they prefer hair of its natural color. If I got it cut today, my hair would be just below my shoulders (if I had known that before I got it cut, I would have just donated it today). You can find all the information here if you're interested in donating to Locks of Love. It's a great feeling knowing that you're giving a cancer patient the confidence they need to feel their best.
Have you ever donated to Locks of Love? If so, what made you decide to donate? Whatever your reason, I commend you and thank you for your contribution!
