low maintenance volunteer work

You may have noticed my hair is getting quite long. I admit, it’s slightly mop-like right now, but it’s all for a good cause. I’ve always had aspirations to grow out my hair and donate it to Locks of Love. However, they require at least 10 inches, and that’s a lot of mop for me. Fortunately, Anna recently told me that Pantene has their own hair donation program and they only ask for 8 inches. Bingo.

Here’s a shot Jim took tonight: right now it’s 8 inches from the hair tie down, but I think I’ll wait a few more months so that I’m not left with a mere poof of hair after the chop.

Extra perk? I’m not spending $150 every 8 weeks for a cut and color. Stay tuned.

  1. Dave's school had locks of love come and I donated 8 inches, sooo maybe it's changed since last year? Or maybe they just pretended to take my hair and laughed after I left that I chopped my hair for no reason. But for real, I don't know if 10 inches is set in stone because my sister did it also and I don't think she had 10 inches, I think hers was around 8 also.

  2. That's awesome that you are doing this!!! It is so fun to know that your gorgeous hair is going to someone who needs a fabulous wig. I am going to do the same thing after the wedding! Maybe we can go together!
