Ladies, have you ever considered donating your hair? Yes, cutting your hair and sending it to a cause who makes wigs for those who lose their hair due to illness. Well, I did just that Saturday, March 31. Here are a few pictures.

The rules are pretty simple for the causes I am familiar with–Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

  • Ensure you care for your hair as it grows.
  • Do not use permanent hair color.
  • Have at least 8″ (as curlies, stretch your hair to see true length)
  • No more than 5% gray hair.

I am hoping I can do it again in three or so years. Please consider it. At least six ponytails are needed to create one wig. I know those who receive the wigs and the ones who love them appreciate your generosity.

National Donate Your Hair Day sponsored by Pantene Beautiful Lengths is April 23.

Would you donate your curly length to Locks of Love or Pantene Beautiful Lengths?
