So Long Super Long Hair!

I can't even remember the last time I had a haircut. It's definitely been a while and my hair had gotten so long, to the point where I'd be fed up with it and throw it up in a pony tail or bun within the hour of having it down (my co-workers can vouch for this...). While I enjoyed it for a while, it was about time I chopped it off.
This time around, I decided to donate my hair to "Pantene Beautiful Lengths", which is the Canadian equivalent to the popular "Locks of Love". I ended up cutting off about 10.5 inches and while it was a slightly emotional moment for me, I knew it'd go toward a good cause. After freaking out while my family members took turns cutting braid by braid, I felt so much lighter (literally!).
I remember when Locks of Love came to my high school a few years back and I watched people getting their hair cut off in the cafeteria. I remember seeing a few girls cry and now I can understand why. It took me a while myself to finally bite the bullet and cut my hair. As cliche as it sounds, your hair is, in some ways, a security blanket. However, attached as I was, I think we all get to a point where it's about time for a change - and my decision to cut my hair appropriately coincided with the New Year. I only hope that I continue to make decisions and changes for the better this year.



  1. Ahhh! I'm proud that you donated you hair :3 I actually donated my hair too! I donated it to a local Cancer Foundation! A lot of people have been donating their hair recently, it's pretty awesome that people are doing random acts of kindness by giving back.
    Thanks for sharing!
