    Exclamation First LoL Comment!

    I am officially a long hair I suppose, as I was asked today if I was planning on donating my hair to Locks of Love.
    A girl in my class was talking about how she was growing out her hair to donate it. Her hair is about APL and she was talking about how she gets it cut every six weeks, straightens it every day and dyes it very bright blonde, but was confused at how long it was taking for it to grow. I didn't say anything, as it's not my business, but I had worn my hair down today for a change, and it drew her donating eye.

    "Why don't you donate your hair? It's so long!"
    I said "I'd rather give money if I was going to donate anything."
    "You're being selfish" she replied.
    I said "Oh, before you cut it off, you should know that Locks of Love throws out all of the over-processed hair it receives."

    She had absolutely nothing to say to that, but just touched her rather fried hair and my teacher who had been privy to the whole conversation said "Oberon, your hair is gorgeous, don't cut it."




    It's kind of a funny thing to be excited about.

    It just floors me that basically a complete stranger to you would blurt out, "you're being selfish". Do we not have any manners anymore??? I'm so glad you called her on it and good for your teacher too.

    You used the term "donating eye." I thought that was a clever phrase.

    Yes, it definitely shows poor manners, and it is also very freaky how people try to control others through hair. I wonder if stone age societies did this, too. I wonder what they complained about back then. It wasn't not having a neat bob; perhaps they complained if your locks were not matted enough .

    I think that is priceless Oberon! I would hope that you educated her, but having met the type before I doubt it.

    No in stone age societies they just grabbed the hair and yanked to control you Now they just do the same thing verbally.

    Hi!

    PLus, you might have told her, that very little of the hair donated to LOL actually GETS to the people who need it! Much of it is sold at a profit and where the heck does that money go?

    How long will it grow? Who knows? Let us see? Maybe I will be the next Diane Witt?
