I have never in my life had short hair...unless you count when I was a baby and it was growing to its long state. So this was a big move for me. But it was for a good cause so I feel happy that I was able to share my hair with someone else who needs it much more than I do. I decided about a year ago that I wanted to grow my hair out to donate it to cancer patients. There are a few organizations out there and ultimately I decided to donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths who makes wigs out of the donated hair for women with cancer. I know how hair can be such a great form of expression and self-image for a woman and can only imagine what it would feel like to lose all of your hair. If you're thinking about doing it, I encourage you to find an organization and grow your hair out to donate it and make a small difference in someone's life. After all, it will grow back..right?
