I am super excited about this organization, Locks of Love.  For the last three and a half years, I have been growing my hair out.  Mostly because my migraines make anyone messing with my hair really painful.  Last week, I decided that it was time to finally get my hair cut.  This is how long my hair was before the cut:

First the stylist cut my hair off at my shoulders just above my ponytail.  This was the hair I was donating and it was 16 inches.  Then I had even more cut off.  By the time the hair cut was complete, I had more than 18 inches taken off my head.

This is my hair now:


Locks of Love is a great place to donate hair if you have at least 10 inches cut off.  Here is what their website says they are all about:

What is Locks of Love?

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

I believe that more people should do this if they can. Share you before and after pictures if you decide to donate to Locks of Love.
