Hair, Hair, Hair

Most women complain about their hair.
I'm no exception, but I really shouldn't complain.

I've inherited my hair from my father's side of the family
since my mother's side all have very thin hair.

My hair is thick, grows extremely fast and I'll be
50 this summer and I don't have any grey yet.
(and don't worry, I check all the time)
My 80 year old aunt still had no grey
so I guess I shouldn't complain...
good genes.

Not everyone is so lucky.
So last year I decided to let it grow to donate it.

And this is the result.
(I guess I could have worn a more flattering shirt.)

I wanted to make sure we got as much length as possible. So we put it in ponytails.

10" of  hair!

Tah Dah!

The finished product!

At first it was kinda freaky...and cold!
Now I'm used to it and I kinda like it.
I'm saving a lot on shampoo...but not on hair styling products.
Phew...that's not cheap.

But the hair is now gone to it's destination.
I guess it takes 6-7 ponytails (one full ponytail) to make one wig.
They actually strip all the hair of it's colour and then redye it to
the desired uniform colour.

So if you've got long, non chemically treated hair...
think about donating it.

I might do it again in a few years.

Have a Blessed Day.
