Here's why you should totally do it!
|When my hair reaches the bottom of my shoulder blades, I know it's ready for the big CHOP.|
Now and then we all need a change.
Forcing ourselves out of our comfort zones once in awhile often proves to be healthy and inspiring. How can we truly move forward without coming to terms with change?
It's hair. We all know it grows back. See if you're strong enough to ROCK the confidence of a drastic length change. Because you are. You're smokin' hot no matter what. Duh.
|My hair grows quickly, so I have been able to cut off 8-inches every two years.|
The chop is an all-around sensory trip—running your hands through shorter hair feels so light and clean, it's an exciting visual change, and the way the hair falls on your body is fresh and thrillingly different.
So many exciting new styling tricks and opportunities inspire creativity. You get awakened to cute new styles you might have previously overlooked.
New possibilities, shorter styling time!
3. What good is cut hair when it just gets tossed in the trash? What you lop off can help someone gain the strength and empowerment to make a brighter day.
It makes my heart so incredibly happy to be able to give women who are up against cancer the chance to feel confident in their fight.
My past two donations have been to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. They accept a minimum of 8-inch hair donations to make hairpieces for women with cancer, but hair cannot be (more than 5%) gray, dyed, bleached or processed in advance.

Locks of Love makes hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children and adults under 21 with long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis and takes colored or permed hair (not bleached). The donation minimum is 10-inches.
There are many other places that accept donations, though I have not found any that accept less than 8-inches, so take some time to research to find the program you'd most like to support.
