In May of 2008, I donated my hair to Locks of Love for the very first time. It was a very special experience. I found my hippy hair pictures! This was right before I donated:
So then I had 14 inches cut off:
They tied it tightly in a ponytail, chopped it off, and then went ahead and styled the hair I had left.
kinda weird, huh? it's like a little pet :-)
and then the tied, clean, dry ponytail is sent off in a ziplock bag, and then a padded envelope, to Locks of Love!
This was our 2yr "engagement" anniversary a couple weeks after the big haircut (so you can see what it actually looked like after)
I heard it takes about 10 ponytails to make just one wig. Wow. So now, two years later, my hair is long enough to donate again. I'm making an appointment tomorrow.
