Today was the day for the big cut. 11 inches, to be exact!
After having many excruciating headaches, I decided my heavy hair was certainly not helping the situation, and needed to be GONE!
My friend Tara was a huge inspiration when she decided to grow her hair out purposely to give to Locks of Love, an organization committed to making wigs for children. What a great idea!
I thought, "Well if I'm getting it cut anyways, I may as well cut enough to give." And that's what I did.
I wasn't sure how to go about doing the Locks-of-Love thing and so decided to put a message on facebook asking for help. I found out I could go to my local hair salon and send the hair in myself. Great!
I made the appointment.
The hubster kept asking, "Are you sure? Did you change your mind yet?"
And off I went.
But first, a couple of before pics:
That's a LOT of hair right there!
Of course, I forgot to bring my camera to take a pic of the actual cutting!
But, here's the after, with ponytail...and Sarah (she was fascinated by my new 'do)...in tow:
(it's a little messy from me raking my hands through it so much...lol)
Holy! Talk about feeling like NO hair! I feel so light and free...haha!
And I'm very happy to be giving my 11 inches to a great cause!
