Locks of Love

So I had been talking about chopping of my hair for 2 months and I finally did it back on Dec. 5th! I got 10 inches cut off to donate to Locks of Love which is an amazing organization that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair. God has blessed me with the fastest growing hair so this is my 3rd time donating since 2006! The new do feels great and makes me feel more up to date - none of that washed up mom look that I was sporting =) I always had my hair up in a semi-bun - YUCK! Oh, not to say I won't wear it up but it is really easy to do to wear down now. I'm just having to learn the art of a flat iron... not as easy as my hair dresser made it seem but I'm getting the hang of it. Neil LOVES it which makes me feel even better =)

Love the longer in the front, shorter in the back look!

So if you have the hankering to chop away, think about donating! 10 inches to Locks of Love but you can do 8 inches for Pantene Beautiful Lengths which is for women who have lost their hair. I even found a site that takes 6 inches called Pink Heart Funds if that is more of your inches to lose! If you do a google search, donate hair even more sites will come up so check it out =)

I didn't know that you had donated it to Locks of Love. You're kept it up so much I didn't even realize how long it truly was! I have donated twice since end of '05 so you do have some amazingly fast growing hair! I think this is an amazing cause and give you big kudos...for doing it and for the way cute haircut too!

Yea! I've almost got my 10 inches. This will be my second time to donate. It's such an easy way to bless a child and oh, the short do feels so good after the months of long locks!

Cute style!
