Hair, hair, hair….

Within the past 2 years, I donated hair for wigs. I know I blogged about it, but I can’t find the post… ah, well. I know it was while we were here in Central Texas.

Today, I cut off a 10 inch ponytail to donate for wig making. I’ve never needed a wig, but my Mom and my step-mom have both used a wig while on chemo. (And both had beautiful silver-grey hair regrow after the chemo stopped. I’d love to have silver-grey hair. :::sigh:::)

I should have done this a month ago, before I was losing gobs of hair (postpartum thing, I’m guessing).

I have been blessed with fast growing and thick hair. This was not always so. As a child, I had fine, thin and straight hair. As an adult, it has thickened and curled.

One of these days, I’ll figure out how to use the mirror for a picture and not get flash glare.
I suspect the next pony-tail that is long enough to donate will take longer, unless I get pregnant again.

  1. I was thinking about this just the other day – I'm ready to cut my hair again. Also, if I cut my hair after our next baby is born, I can reduce the insane amount of hair that I seem to shed.I wish I'd thought to cut my hair soon after Huck was born!
