I did it. I chopped my hair. I said I would in 2012, and since it's already fall, I figured I should get on it. In the past I have donated with Locks of Love, but I heard that Pantene also has a program and their a little more liberal with the hair accepted. And let's face it. I have an 18 month old; my hair is not very well taken-care of.
So I went ahead and filled out my envelope to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and scheduled my hair appointment. You only need 8 inches for Pantene's program (as opposed to 10 for Locks of Love), so i wasn't too scared going into it.
At the actual appointment, I got even more bold. I did have her cut the full 10 inches for the donation and then she cut probably another 2-3 in styling my hair.
I don't have a good pic of it yet, but here's an idea. It's about shoulder length and a little longer in the front with some layers, more in the back. Please don't judge by this pic, this was once we got to the Adirondacks at about 5 pm, after having left Minnesota at 5 am and stopping in Detroit. I know my hair will have better days.
But there you have it....my hair is gone and I'm still getting used to it. The good thing about hair, is that it always grows back, and super fast right now because of my prenatal vitamins!
