A few weeks ago, I finally did it…after 2 years of growing my hair out, I finally chopped off 11 inches to donate to Locks of Love!
If you have not heard of Locks of Love, please visit their website to read all about this great organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love collects donations for hair that is 10 inches or longer. The mission of Locks of Love is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
Here are the before and after shots:
Thank you to my stylist, Mr. Daniel Ngo for an awesome haircut. I absolutely LOVE it especially for this warm summer weather! If you are ever in San Diego, please do see Daniel for his amazing haircutting skills. I have a few friends who also have been donating to Locks of Love for many years and keep donating each time that their hair grows out to the length needed to donate (10 inches). Much love to all of you!
This is dedicated to all of my family and friends who have fought and survived through cancer and to those that are continuing to fight. I am in awe of your strength. So to all of you who are thinking of cutting your hair soon, please consider growing it long enough to donate to Locks of Love!
