The BIG Snip
Well I had been planning this for a while now; another hair donation for the Locks of Love. I've been doing this for well over 20 years, so you'd think it would get easier each time....but it doesn't! It's still very traumatic cutting all that hair off!!
The very first time I did it, I went from below fanny length to Pixie length! OMG!!! What the **** was I thinking!! It was such a shock!!! I actually cried for weeks....eh? maybe months! I felt naked, exposed and embarrassed to be seen....well actually I felt like a freak!
Over the years I have learned a secret, or at least this is what works for me. When I cut my hair for a donation, I make sure I still have it long enough so that I can put it in a ponytail or clip. That way it still feels somewhat normal.
I always cut off 14" because that's my lucky number and each donation is made in memory of someone I have loved and lost.
If you would like more information on hair donations please contact Locks of Love and or Wigs For Kids.
It's a good thing!
