Finally had the time and the guts...

but I couldn't get it done. Cutting my hair that is. I wanted to get it cut and donate my hair to Locks of Love. I went in today to do it. The girl told me that I would have to have 2 inches cut off of the bottom before she could start measuring because I had colored my hair before. I haven't colored it in almost 2 years. So after she put the pony tial in to measure and didn't count the 2 inches, she would have had to cut it to my neck!! I couldn't do it. That's way too short. She said she could still cut and styl of course, but I thought that would just be a waist so I didn't. Brian said I should still get it cut too, but I think that wuld be selfish. i would like to get a cut and new style. I haven't gone to a hair dresser since my 8 year old son was 3 months old!! Brian says I deserve to do something nice for myself every once in a while and that doing it wouldn't be selfish but I just keep thinking that I would feel bad if I didn't get to donate my hair. What if there is a long waiting list of people that want hair? I mean, if they had an abundance of donations then I wouldn't hesitate, but I don't know. Also, the deer have been eating our flowers and I could save the hair to put in the garden to keep the deer out, lol, but I want to donate it. So, here I sit with a head full of un-styled over grown hair, lol. I took a before pic today thinking I was going to get it cut....


So, what do you think? Should I get it cut for myself? I would like it done. Showers would not take as long, I would feel better and with the hot weather here now I would feel cooler. Or should I wait until it is long enough to donate? Tell me your thoughts! I would love to hear them!

4 friends stopped by to say...:

Wow, Jeanelle I had no idea your hair was that long!! I think it's great that you wanted to donate your hair but in the end do what's best for you! The good thing about hair...it will grow back. It sounds like your ready to do it whether you donate it or not. Good luck with your decision

Wow your hair is so long Jeanelle! Too bad you can't donate it now. I just got mine all cut off and was lucky enough to have the length to donate. Anyway..I think if you want to get it cut go for it! As nice as it is to donate it's better to be happy with how you feel. :) You can always grow it out healthy now and donate it later. BTW I hadn't thought about doing that to keep the dear out, thanks!

Your hair is beautiful! Why not share it with "locks of Love?" Some little child that is bald from chemo could share your beautiful hair.

First Jeanelle I have to say I absolutely love your name. I went school with a girl by that name.. I just love your name.
Double think about cutting your hair, its all what you want, mine was that long and I have been kinda torn since I have done it-just my opinion. I love your blog..smiiles
