View Full Version : Donated my locks!

I grew my hair for 3 years, from shoulder to waist. I don't know if it was because of my first real winter (I moved from sunny Florida to cold New Hampshire), but it got to a point where I could hardly untangle it and felt frustrated and weighed down. So, in February of this year, I went into the salon and asked for a cut. Like most hairdressers, she was so impressed with the length and condition of it. When I told her I wanted to donate it, she got SO nervous. She had never made such a huge chop before. She took my photos and put so much work into my cut. I was there over an hour. She said I deserved a cut I will absolutely love. And I did. Best cut I have ever had.

I haven't cut it yet. It is already past my shoulder. I moved back to Florida a week after my cut and I know my chances of having such an amazing experience like that again is probably not likely. So, I guess if you ever decide to cut and are in Manchester, NH, go see Darlene in the mall at Regis. :)

I donated 20 inches to Locks of Love. Here's to the next 20!

Opening the big can of worms...

Don't you know about Locks of Love?

Nope. Did my research the best I could. It's done, so I'm not really interested in finding out I made a mistake.

Locks of Love charges their clients the full price of the wigs, Pantene donates the wigs to cancer patients. That's the main difference between the two groups. Neither choice is a "mistake".

You look absolutely beautiful in both photos.

Your new cut looks great, you have pretty hair at any length.
So happy to hear you had a good salon experience also!

Regardless of what the opinion of Locks of Love is here, donation was a beautiful, selfless gesture. Your long hair was lovely, but that cut is fantastic too. I bet your head feels a lot lighter! I'm glad you had such a fantastic hairdresser, such a bouncy, healthy, stylish look.

If you don't think you made a mistake then you didn't. It's your hair and totally your decision.

Your new cut is very nice :)

That was a wonderfully selfless and kind thing to do, and your hair looks wonderful both before and after the cut.

Not to nitpick, but there are some other very important differences:
- Pantene accepts some percentage of gray hairs, LoL will not.
- Pantene works with cancer patients, LoL doesn't - LoL works with alopecia patients.
- The threshhold of length acceptable for donation is lower at Pantene than at LoL.

Your hair looks really healthy with a nice thick hemline now. The change will be fun for you and now you can do some new hairstyles, like a french twist with a stick or claw clip that you were unable to do before when it was longer. It will always grow back if you want it to. You look very cute! :blossom:
