Last week my friend Alicia and I cut are locks off and gave them to someone who really needs them. Alicia and I have been talking about donating our hair for months now but were waiting until after she got married to do so. Only days after her returning from her honeymoon we took the leap and chopped it off. She donated 13 inches and I chopped 11 inches. I have such a love/hate relationship with long hair..I love it most of the time but HATE it when I'm running, at work and when it's hot outside! This is my fourth time donating my hair, I have donated to Locks of Love once and Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program twice. The minimum length to donate to Locks of Love is 10 inches and Pantene will take a minimum of 8 inches. Both of these places take "virgin" hair and certain dyed hair but no highlights aloud. Since I had my hair highlighted I had to look around and see if I could find a place who would take my hair...and I did! The Art of Wigs accepts lightly highlighted hair with a minimum of 10 inches to be donated, so that is where my hair is now:) Alicia donated hers to Locks of Love. I invite you to check out each of these places if you have ever thought about donating your beautiful healthy hair, I'm sure there are many many people who would truly appreciate it:)
