I cut 13 inches of hair yesterday. I try to cut and donate my hair once a year or so since it grows super fast.
But this is the shortest my hair has been in ages! It’s not the hair cut I wanted but it grows quick so I will deal. (The stylist was extremely talkative and apparently cannot talk and work at the same time. So this took 2 hours...just for a cut....)
I miss my long hair but it was time to donate
Anyone else donate hair? I rotate donating to Wigs for Kids and Locks of Love.
As a cancer patient I received a free natural hair wig composed of hair of generous donors like you. THANKS for caring about those who lose their hair through chemo and radiation. Pantene was the sponsor of The Cancer Society's Wig Program nationally 6 year ago.I have been in remission for 5 years now. Glad your hair grows fast-LOL.
I let my hair grow down to my shoulder blade for a while. In the end it just made me too hot durign the summer, and was too much trouble to take care of. Thoght of finating it, but most of it grew out while I ws on cancer meds (for leukemia,, which seems to be gone now), so it didn't look all that healthy.
You are a champ, a young friend of mine had hair down to her bum, she pulled up next to me one day and I ddin't recognise her, it was all gone.
Like you she dontaed. Her best friend had died of cancer, she felt so good being able to do something to help.
Good for you, it will help someone.
Locks of love gets a lot of flack for charging for their wigs while wigs for kids never charges the recipients. I'm not sure why Locks of Love charges people and there may be a valid reason, but I have researched them enough to verify that their service is not free.
I have twice to Locks of Love and a friend clued me in that they make recipients pay for those wigs. They sell the hair too. I have hair down to my ass and I would go to Wigs for Kids if I were younger but at near 57 I think I will find an older lady with cancer in need of it and donate straight to that person.
