Yes, it was getting very long. I hadn't had a hair cut in almost two years and I was very overdue for one. I don't very much like to get haircuts because I don't particularly care to pay money to have it cut and then to have it grow right back and then pay to have it cut again. It's a vicious cycle and I don't care for vicious cycles...like a monthly period. Haircuts are like a montly period to me. They are high maintenance and expensive.
So, I thought I might as well do it for a good cause. I looked up some long bob haircuts and made an appointment with the last hairstylist I used a couple years back. I went in, had her measure out 10 inches, and let her have her way with it.
I'm pretty convinced she dreaded cutting off those 10 inches more than I did. She was probably in fear that I might start crying. She doesn't know me very well. ha! I was glad to see it gone! For some perspective: this was not a one ponytail cut...this was a part my hair in four sections and cut four sections sort of an ordeal. I'm tired just thinking about it.
|wait for it...|
|whoa nellie! that's a lotta hair!|
Less hair = less shampoo, shorter shower, less water, less hair drying, less time. woo hoo! I'm free!
I'm donating it.
win win if you ask me.
After asking a friend who recently went through chemotherapry to remove her stage 4 ovarian cancer, I've chosen to donate the hair to Pantene's program. Locks of love is a great donation program as well.
Keep on Keepin on.
