If you follow us on our Facebook page, you may have seen the discussion last week about getting your hair cut. After I had my second son, I didn’t get my hair cut until he was almost a year old. Not because I didn’t need it, but, honestly, it just never got put on my calendar. That was May 2013.
In May, my hair was pretty long, and I decided that I would let it grow to a point where I would be able to donate it. I have never done this before, but I am the person that would cut my hair short on a whim and have no worries. It just always seemed silly to worry about it too much when it would grow back. Cutting off 8+ inches didn’t seem like a big deal – if I could get it that long.
Fast forward to less than two weeks ago, and I was at the point where I was ready for cut! My hair needed attention and even if it wasn’t ready to be cut for donation, I was still getting a trim.
Well, yesterday was that appointment and it was long enough to donate!

Have you donated before? Are there other organizations out there that can use your locks?
