I have been letting my hair grow long for the last year or so. I normally don't wear my hair this long, but I chose to do so for a great cause. Thankfully I had reached the 8 inches that I needed to have it cut. We're headed to Orlando next weekend and I didn't think I'd be able to handle the heat with such long hair.
My stylist Tricia had to use to rubber bands to get a more even cut across the back. They say it takes a minimum of 6 ponytails for one wig. I am donating my hair through Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Length's program. I did this about 4 years ago sometime after I had Brooklyn. My hair grew so long during pregnancy that I thought it was a good time to grow it. If you have long hair or you want to grow yours out for the cause, I encourage you to visit their site and learn more about it. It's really simple to do.
This time I wanted to honor my aunt who is battling breast cancer. I figured if she and other women facing cancer could go through the pain of the treatments and the side effects of losing their hair, then I could handle the hassle of growing mine out to honor them. Aunt Doreen this ones for you. I love you and I am praying for you.
I feel so much lighter and it's a perfect cut for summer. I may go back and have her put in a few layers, but for now this will do.
