good idea now that my hair is short again  
Your Hair Should Be Blue

Wild, brilliant, and out of control.
You're a risk taker with an eye to the future.



Note:

Last week I finaly had hair long enough to donate to Locks of Love and am now 12 inches shorter and several pounds lighter!

Wow! Good for you!

Uh, yeah. That's why I'm nine pounds over my fighting weight. It's my hair.

Very cool about locks of love. Katherine (older daughter) is growing hers out for the same reason. It's probably long enough now, but she's waiting for after the holidays to donate it. I have to say I'm a little scared -- I blame a lot of my own middle school geekiness on an unflattering, ultra-short 'do. But it's a wonderful thing to do.

Good for you! What a great program that is!

Wonder if they'd have taken it if it was blue...

Oooh . . . I wish you had mentioned the LoL donation plans earlier, because Pantene now has a "Beautiful Lengths" program that actually does guarantee that your hair goes to make a cancer patient a wig. LoL does NOT do that. They provide wigs to alopecia patients, not cancer patients, and not to children (because most children do better with a synthetic wig--easier to care for) . . . but the misinformation is out there from LoL and the supporting salons because that's how they get their product. The LJ longhair community has "memories" set up to tell you about the LoL business practices. (If you actually go to LoL's website, they do state that they make wigs for alopecia only . . . but they don't publicize that, because they get more donations with the public image they now have. And the actual number of wigs they make doesn't add up--there's a controversy about what's happening to the majority of their donations. It's quite disturbing.) But anyhow, we can cross our fingers that your donation goes to the right people this time, and keep in mind the Pantene organization for next time.
