It has been quite some time since I have really taken care of myself and gotten my hair cut. My husband was unemployed, so that was one of the first indulgences to go (the lady I go to is kind of expensive, but WELL worth it). Since he is back to work now, I decided to book an appointment after he got his first check. I took a couple photos of me that had the hair style I wanted. After shampooing and getting me in the chair, she noticed that she was going to be cutting quite a bit off. She pulled out a tape measure...I had NO clue why she was measuring my hair....She told me that I had enough to donate to Locks of Love. I said go for it. My hair ended up a little shorter than I wanted it, but it was well worth the cause. She sent me home with my 12 inch long ponytail and the website to get the information for sending it off.
I just about cried when I pulled up the site and saw the stories of the children that the hair is donated for. If I can stand growing my hair out that long again, I will definitely do it again. It made me feel so good to be able to help like I did.
The next day I worked on a Habitat for Humanity house. I'll do it again next year too.
