Cutting My Hair

I have always had long hair but I have been considering getting it cut for awhile. It's a lot of work to take care of and it seems to always be in the way, getting into my food, getting caught in the car windows, tangled up in my clothes or
something. It's so long that I can sit on it and being the klutz that I am, I have even tripped on it a few times. I guess I am just getting too old for long hair  (sigh)

I had pretty much convinced myself to go for it and just chop it but something about the thought of seeing it being swept up off some salon floor and thrown in the trash bothers me so I have been putting it off. I spent most of my life growing it this long, it's in good condition, thick and wavy and it just seems like such a waste to see it just thrown out.

Anyway, the other day I was reading an article about a charity that uses donated hair to make wigs for kids who have lost their hair to medical problems or chemotherapy.

What a wonderful idea, it has finally convinced me to get my hair cut! If I tie it back in a braid before it's cut I can give them over 2 feet of hair to use.

I 'll make some phone calls on Monday to find out what the process is then make an appointment at the hair salon . It's gonna be strange having short hair, it'll take some getting to but it will make me feel good knowing that I have helped make a positive difference in a child's life.
