Locks of Love

In a post that has been a long time coming.... back in July I cut my hair. Actually I cut a lot of hairs. See for yourself.

Before



After




I post this not to get comments about how cute a do it is (because to be honest, I know it is cute...all thanks to Brandi over at Soak Salon. All I did was tell her I wanted it all off and no bangs, she did the rest.) But rather to bring attention to Locks of Love Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides custom hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children 18 years and younger who suffer from any type of long term medical hair loss. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a condition calledAlopecia Areata. So basically, they totally rock and am I very happy to be able to help them in this way. My husband did this awhile back too, maybe I'll get some pictures of him loaded on the computer soon. He had the total "Jesus" look going for him.

So, if you are thinking about cutting your hair- do it! Just wait until you can get at least a 10 inch pony tail to send in. You see, most of the children Locks of Love helps are little girls, and little girls love long hair. The process that makes the prosthetics uses 2in of the total length, so the donated pony tail needs to be at least 10 inches in order to get enough length. And it takes 6-10 donated pony tails for each hair piece. So, as you can imagine, they probably aren't suffering from too much hair being donated and not enough people to give it to.

Alright, back to your regularly scheduled blogging now. Of course, around these parts that has been next to none. I hope to amend that very soon, so keep checking back. And in the mean time check out Molly and Dawn for lots of great stuff.

Oh, and sorry the top pics are side ways, I'll fix that some time soon.....

I am trying to grow mine out now. If I do get it long enough and decide to go short again, I will keep this in mind. But my hair gets so thin on the ends if it's too long, so they might not want it.

I think they would still want it even if it was thin, I mean they use multiple pony tails per wig so I imagine they would just pair it with someone with thick hair? Or at least that seems like good logic to me. :) They really aren't picky about the *type* of hair they get, with the except of bleached or gray. But if you have gray you can dye it, just no bleached hair.

Good luck growing it out. The inbetween stages are killer!
