light-headed



In 2005, I decided that I wanted to cut my hair and donate it to Locks of Love. Of course, I love my long hair, so I went with the minimum amount you can donate, which is 10 inches. I freaked out before it was cut, and then decided that while I didn't mind the shorter length, I would prefer longer hair.

Three years later, a long, hot summer of Ultimate was upon me, and I decided I should make donating my hair a regular every three year thing. So again, I cut off 10 inches of my hair.

It must have been the water, because my hair grew fast, and lately my neck was starting to complain when I put my hair up in a bun. So two years after my last big cut, namely, today, I went in for another round. Even though I should be used to it by now, I was nervous. But all went well, and I have again succeeded in starting the summer off with just longer than shoulder-length hair. I feel so light!

You had nothing to worry about -- seems like a fine length!

I can't believe that's the length of your hair *after* a 10 inch donation! I just donated for the third time in October and the result is barely chin length. Some kid is super lucky to be getting your lovely locks!

Just longer than shoulder length? Ha.

Looks good though.
