My (mostly)strawberry-(just slightly)blond hair is my favorite feature. I would say it's my best, but there are people reading this who would disagree. So we'll stick with "favorite."
I recently received a postcard in the mail. That in itself is not exactly a big deal... except this was my Locks of Love donor recognition postcard!
Actually, it was my second LOL postcard. I have donated hair on two occasions - once right before I moved to Oki, when I donated 13 inches. (People, that is a crazy lot of hair. I had what was left turned into a layered bob that was *so* not right for my face shape.) This time, I donated 12 inches - still a ton of hair - and had much better results. For one, I grew it out longer beforehand so I would have more to work with after the cut. Also, I did a lot of internet surfing to find the perfect cut for my hair type and color, face shape, and morning styling time.
Now I guess I'll just let it keep growing until I donate again! I mean, I've been "growing it out" practically all my life - why stop now? Besides, my hair is a really unique color that a ton of women pay hundreds of dollars to get with color treatments. (Or so my hairdressers have told me.) Since I'm blessed enough to have it naturally, I figure the hairpiece recipients at LOL would be happy to have it too.
Have you ever donated something unique - like hair! - to a charity?
