This week I decided to check another item of of my life bucket list. I donated my hair to charity. Honestly, this has been on the bucket list for a while, but I usually get about 6 inches grown and just can’t take it any more, and trim it to a more manageable length. But the past few months, I’ve been otherwise occupied and haven’t gotten to setting up an appointment. As you can see my hair had gotten a little out of control. I call this hair style 5th grade triangle hair.
Of note, my mom was in a previous life a hairdresser, and for a fun fact I have only had someone else touch my hair on 2 other occasions. I should also point out, that I often get lazy when it comes to my hair, and as a result I’ll end up looking like above. I don’t want anyone to get the impression that she is lousy at hair, but I do lack follow through. I think the last time I had my hair done was over three months ago. We had difficulty deciding how many ponies to make, but in the end decided on two.
I actually thought that I might panic when the hair came off, but it was actually quite a relief. My mom on the other hand, freaked out a little bit until it was shaped. I put a little pressure on her too because I couldn’t really figure out how much hair that I would have left and I couldn’t decide on a style. In the end, I just let her do her thing.
The charity that I am sending it to is called Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths. I chose Pantene because they both accept only 8 inches of hair, and they additionally give free wigs to cancer patients. As I work with many cancer patients, this is a near and dear cause.
The finished product, I can’t argue with. I absolutely love how the color and cut came out. I also love how easy the maintenance is on the hair, it’s really a wash and go kind of style, which really fits into my lifestyle well! Big thanks to my wonderful styling mother for doing this for me!
