Three Reasons to Donate Your Hair

Ever thought about donating your hair?
:::double high fives:::

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.
1. Had the same hairdo for as long as you can remember?
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.
2. It feels so exhilarating to take all that "time" off your hair, kind of like an emotional purging.

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.

Ponytail is in the mail! Add a return address to receive confirmation of delivery and a feel-good thank you letter.
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.

One of my sweetest besties (and her darlin' sister, too) made donations to Pantene Beautiful Lengths and Locks of Love this year
Choose your cause and get passionate about your bold and thoughtful contribution. 
Every donation makes a difference. 

If you have already donated or DO decide to make the admirable move to donate in the future, drop me a line! I'll happily feature your story. Let's work together to help contribute to making hairpieces for those who have genuine need.

You can totally do this.
And you'll feel so great about it when you do. 
Chop! Chop!

This is great!! My hair was down to the small of my back (a goal I had set since I was little) when I decided to cut off some inches! I believe the piece I cut was 11"? Here's the sad part... I never actually donated. I still have it, in a ponytail, in a plastic baggie. I was going to go for part deux while at the equator, where I shaved off all my hair (second goal), but instead decided to have a third goal reached by putting in dreads.

Never too late! Sounds like your hair grows quickly, too! You can use donating as a great excuse to grow it out and then CHOP it off to help someone in need. Get at it, girlfriend!
