The last time I got a haircut was over two years ago. When I did, it was super short. I LOVED it. But I got so busy that I forgot to get a haircut for a long time. After awhile, I decided that I would just continue to grow my hair out so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. It’s something I had always wanted to do, but because my hair has never been past my shoulders in length, I just figured wasn’t possible.
It took a LOT of willpower for me to keep growing my hair. I am not a high maintenance person when it comes to hair. Most days I’m lucky if I even blow dry it before running out the door. But I’m glad I kept on with it because it’s worth it.
I’m not going to miss my long hair AT ALL…but, from the bottom of my heart, I hope it brings joy and confidence to a kid who is really missing theirs!
