Over the weekend I made a change. A change that has been two years coming. I finally donated my hair! This is not my first donation, its either my 3rd or 4th. I can clearly remember 3 of the donations, and I’m fairly certain there was one in college, but I can’t remember for sure. (I also assumed I had blogged about it previously, but can’t seem to find a specific post).
My hair takes about 2 years to go from donated, to long enough to donate again. I get a few hair cuts each year, typically taking an inch or so off at a time. Since I don’t dye my hair at this point in my life, its something I can easily do and give back to others. It takes multiple donations to make one wig, and I chose to donate to Beautiful Lengths, which is sponsored by Panteen.
Will I donate again? Probably. I have no idea what life will look like in two years, but I doubt I”ll go any shorter than my hair is now.
Have you ever grow out your hair to donate?
