inch by inch....


so as you can see in the picture....i'm measuring my hair:) i am going to donate it, and i just wanted to see how much i had going on here...and i am pulling it out to the side a bit, so i think it is actually 9 inches, not 10. but i am excited. i'll probably go a bit longer and then i'm going to do the Pantene Beautiful Lengths donation. i thought initially that i would do Locks of Love but after doing some research, i discovered that Locks of Love primarily makes and distributes wigs to disadvantaged children, lots with alopecia, and of course from any other illness that makes the patient lose their hair including cancer. Pantene primarily gives to women with cancer, and since that is how i started out this crusade...in the name of my mom, who battled breast cancer herself in the past year and a half...i'm going to do the Pantene thing. That being said...i'm excited:) thanks for all the support from friends and family...i'm on the home stretch:) and thanks for sticking with me through the NA-HA-HA-ASTY growing out phases. that alone MIGHT deter me from doing it again anytime soon;) maybe:)

That is cool- I actually just chopped my hair, too. 'Tis the season. :) I still have to send it in, but my plan was locks of love. That is cool- it will be fun to see the pictures.

Good for you! I hate the process of growing my hair out... you are amazing to do it so selflessly! (I think that is a word... well, it should be!) :-)

Anne said...

I still picture you with the pixie do. Can't believe your hair is so long!

Does it all have to be one length or can you have layers? If I can, I'll do it with you.

JenW said...

you can have layers, it's just that the longest of them must be at least 8 inches.
