I was reading this post the other day on the Frugal Kiwi and I thought 'why not'?
get me wrong I love my hair and but mainly it has grown to Biblical
lengths because I am too lazy to maintain it. Growing up my mama's
attitude was always that we could do whatever we liked to our hair
because it would grow back. I pretty much always had long. By the end of
high-school I could tuck my hair into the pockets of my jeans.
Today I made an appointment with the delightful Rebecca of Huntsbury Hair (really lovely salon if you live in Chch
and really reasonable as well) and with her help I now have 10 inches
of hair winging its way to America to be made into a free wig for a
person suffering with cancer and hair loss.
I have donated mine to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths programme.
unless you want payment for your hair there doesn't seem to be anywhere
in NZ you can do it and even if you do donate the recipient doesn't get
the wig free.
Go you! Love it all in every which way possible :) mmmm... now to decide if I will do the same... I've had it one inch short a few times and well down to almost waist at others as I subscribe to your mum's philosophy of... it grows back :) It can do with a bit of a trim at the moment... decisions decisions :)
LOOK AT YOOOU!
What a fab thing to do! And - bonus! You look totally fab too! Almost like a 50's hottie! You're going to rock those vintage dresses and your pinnie!
Maybe some red lippy for when the hubby comes home? ;)
WOW! I'm tempted to follow suit... Your new 'do' looks awesome!!!!!
Wow! what an awesome thing to do and your new 'do' is gorgeous!!!
I have to say it's always exciting to have a change and it's nice to do something fresh in the midst of winter - go for it I say!
oh yes some red lippy good thoughts!
thanks - good time for a haircut I say
thanks I'm really pleased with it
I love it! Both what you're doing with your 'old' hair and how the 'new' hair looks now! Beautiful-er and beautiful-er, you are!
Suits you! You look hot!
I don't quite have 8 inches to spare sadly, but I have a friend with alopecia and she has some beautiful wigs, in a couple of different colours and styles so she can change her 'do' to match her outfits :)
Some lucky person will be stoked to get your luscious locks!
Very brave and kind thing to do Miriam. Why is it so hard to give our hair away. I once shaved mine for cancer too but unfortunately the hair (although not the sponsorship we raised) went to waste. You look gorgeous with your new do xo
wow i love the bob, so 1950's!
do you think anyone would want a ginga wig? (hehe)
awww thanks. I am pretty pleased with the new do - win, win
Hopefully I can imagine how much I would want one
It's weird that is so hard to do and the cost of real hair wigs is astronomical
oh thanks I love 1950s
I so would I adore the colour of your hair, really I really, really do!
AMAZING! You look awsome BTW - I actually think it suits you shorter so BONUS all round!
That is so awesome, my mom went through breast cancer, lost her hair and used wigs. I know this act will be truly appreciated by someone! Your new do looks great!
Adorable haircut!! I bet it feels nice too. ;)
Wow that's fantastic!!! I love it. By the way I notice you are doing replies here, does the person get an email too???
My daughter donated to Locks of Love last year! Such a lovely thing to do.:)
You look gorgeous with your new look! I wish I could donate my hair but it was cut off almost 6 years ago.
Thanks Simone - I think I'll be able to have some fun with it
Thanks Erin - I do hope that the person receiving the wig feels a sense of solidarity and encouragement from the act of another giving their hair for them
yes it does much quicker to wash too!
Thanks Deb - I think they get an email if they check the tag to subscribe to comments under the box.... but you know me happily clueless!
that is really cool
thanks so much. It was easy for me to do and my hair grows pretty quickly too
what a sweet thing to do, miriam! i'll bet you feel lighter, don't you:)
Yes much lighter I am enjoying the new do
How did I miss this post? I've been meaning to say how much I love your new haircut, it really suits you. Now reading this I see how special it is! If only I had known about this, I would have joined you in donating my hair (although I'm not sure if mine was long enough... Ah well, maybe next time if my hair ever gets long enough again.
