So, I started growing my hair out and decided to keep it growing until it was long enough to donate. I honestly thought my hair would never get long enough – it always seemed to stop right about my shoulders. I mentioned my plans to donate to my sister-in-law Steph whose hair was already much longer than mine. She said she would do it with me. So, the growing began in earnest.
I checked at my early summer appointment the length of my hair – 11 inches from tip to root. I let it go during the summer – easy to put up for the beach and the heat. I knew I would have a short cut at the end of it regardless.
Steph gave the go-ahead about 2 weeks ago, so I made a call. Today was the day. Here we are before
She, obviously, had a lot longer hair than me. We both donated the same amount – 10 inches. The after pictures are just after a wet cut with no styling. I think we look pretty good for not really doing our hair. We’ll see how it goes when we actually do it. She commented on how much lighter her hair felt. I just noticed mine didn’t hang down. Hers is much thicker than mine, so I am sure that makes a difference.
It will soon be in the mail and on its way to someone who needs much more than we do. It was good motivation to go short for me,
