Some people get a shorter hair cut as the summer months approach. Not me. Every summer I grow my hair a little longer so that I can put it up in a pony tail. Then as summer ends and returning to work approaches… CHOP. I get a haircut.
This year, things are a little different. I started growing my hair out earlier than usual. And when I went to my hair gal, Renee, and asked her for just a trim, she was a little surprised. Usually, I have her give me some ideas for what to do with my hair. I’ve been game for everything she’s suggested in the past!
What’s the deal this time? I’ve decided to continuing growing my hair so that I can donate it. I figure, I’m lucky enough to be able to grow my hair out easily and it’s in really good condition, so why not? It will grow back.
So far, I’ve got about 7-8 inches and intend on growing it a lot more since I’m starting to get attached to longer hair and don’t want a shorter hair after the cut. I was going to go with Locks of Love until I did a little research and found that there are other charities out there that will take shorter lengths.
If you’re interested in doing this, be sure you figure out your charity first, learn who benefits from your effort, and know the rules for donating. Some folks don’t know the rules and they waste their effort.
