I’ve been thinking about it for at least a year. Letting it go. The little grey hairs were curly and making it hard to comb the really long hair. Especially at the nape of my neck. Plus I really do like donating my hair to a good cause like Locks for Love.
This is the third time I’ve donated my hair. The first time was in 2008. I donated about 20 inches. At that time my hair was nearly to my knees so it wasn’t all that short after the cut, still two to three inches past my shoulders. The last time I cut my hair was in 2013. I cut just enough (about 9″) so I could sleep at night without this rope braid nearly choking me to death. It was still a few inches past my shoulders.
This time I was going to go pixie short but my friend who helped me cut my hair, Linsee, talked me into taking it a little slower. So, we started with a long-line page that sat on my shoulders. It was still in my face so I had her cut more. I’ll test this length a few days and might go shorter after the first of the year.
The curls are such a nice surprise. I was dreading the cut a bit because I thought I’d have to spend an hour a day messing with my hair. What you see is all natural. I’m truly loving it. Not sure Kevin (my guy) feels the same but he loves me anyway.
