Hair Donation // {Pantene Beautiful Lengths}

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the picture of my new 'do. Now, I have had long hair foreverrr. I made the decision to donate my hair a long time ago but I just never could do it. It was so hard for me to let it go. I put it off for years..always telling myself that I was going to grow it out a little longer so it wouldn't be too short when I cut it...buuut I never did the donation.

Finally, in July we moved and were going through such a transition I just decided one day to take the plunge. I don't know if it's just me, but cutting my hair, even a trim, never turns out the way I want it to. To be honest, I love my hair. As a woman I feel so much love and pride in my hair. It makes me feel confident, feminine, and sexy. Is that weird? I don't know...but I do know that if it means that much to me it probably means even more to someone going through hair loss do to cancer.

So, I did it! And it felt great! I had about 12 inches taken off. Honestly, I hate having my hair this short BUT I am so glad that I did it. After doing some research I chose to donate through Pantene's Beautiful Lengths. Unlike other programs, Pantene only requires a minimum of 8 inches. It was super easy. I told my stylist what I wanted to do and she braided my hair, cut it, and I sent it in! I really hope it becomes part of a great wig for someone. If you've been on the fence about donating I really recommend it. Hair is such a big part of our world as women and being able to give that joy back to someone is priceless.
