When my first Little was born I had short hair, think pixie short. I knew I’d never get it cut often enough to maintain that, plus my hair grew so fast during pregnancy I had to let it get a bit longer. I had been working with pediatric hematology/oncology patients and their families during my pregnancy so I decided to let my hair grow and possibly donate it in the future.
Cut to (no pun intended) three years, or so, later and I was ready to donate. Last Wednesday I cut off 13 inches of hair, then to get the cut about another 5 inches went. Here’s the photographic evidence of the event (read: fantastic event).
So I have 13 inches of hair being sent into Pantene Beautiful Lengths: (http://www.pantene.com/en-US/beautiful-lengths-cause/Pages/default.aspx). I’ve had my hair all sorts of different lengths from very long to very short. I have never donated my hair before and I’m not sure that I will again but I’m glad that I am this time. 🙂
