Cut off 12 inches of my hair on Wednesday. I loved my long hair with blond locks but running a new business, having a 2 year old little boy, being about 5 month pregnant, the list could go on & on….I had to make time somewhere and my long hair were becoming somewhat of annoying, always up in a bun. Also being pregnant is supposedly a good time for a hair cut as the hair tend to grow faster & thicker.
It was there, in the back of my mind. Then I heard of the Children With Hair Loss, a non-profit organization (http://www.childrenwithhairloss.us) and my mind was all made up. I waited a few more weeks to get some extra length and my ponytail is now making its way to the organization’s headquarter in Michigan. Not bragging about it but it seems like a very very easy way to help a child right here. I mean : I feel so effing lucky to be healthy and to have hair that actually grow..I am stocked to know this might help bring a smile on a child’s face for free. And truly I feel pretty much the exact same as I was feeling yesterday, maybe a little stronger as I find the process of cutting so much hair at once rather empowering. And I was soooo happy the next morning not having to look for a hair tie! Now I can’t wait for the next express-shampoo..
Life is Good.
(I know, long hair to the left look quite different from the ponytail, that's because I'd never, ever use a brush but my hairdresser had to brush them before cutting. Definitely going back to the messy look soon!).
