Locks of Love

I've thought about it for a week and I finally did it. I chopped off my hair last Saturday. What a change I tell you. If I recall, it's been over 10 years since I've had my hair this short. I feel naked. Why? Because I ALWAYS have a hair tie around my left wrist. Now, I have a bunch of hair ties with nothing to tie. Well, not necessarily. I can tie my hair but I'd look straight up like Pebbles from the Flinstones. Cute but not cute for someone that's less than three months away from turning the big 3-0. Whoah! So last week, I met up with my stylist, Rudy at Alcheme Salon in San Franciso (Sutter @ Stockton). I basically told him I wanted to chop it off and that I trust him so do what you gotta do. It was time for a drastic change. He asked me if I wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love. I told him I thought about it but I didn't meet the 10 inch minimum. He disagreed and said, "You have well over 10 inches!". "Really? Well then. Let's do this!" He tied my long hair into a ponytail and clip! Done! It felt good that doing this drastic change would actually help a good cause at the same time. Totally awesome. It's a great feeling. I still haven't got a chance to mail my hair yet. OK - that just sounded weird. But get this. A part of me will literally be flown to the state of Florida. Ain't that a trip. You know what also would be great? For me to see where and who my hair ends up with. It would be nice for Locks of Love to keep us updated, right? I know that's asking for too much but hey - it's worth a shot, right?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to children under age 18 who are diagnosed with medical conditions that cause hair loss.
So now that I have a short do I'm trying to get used to I feel like I need to bust some Erykah Badu out. I get serious bed head with my thick short locks. The first night I slept with it, I wore a hoodie to try to keep it in place. Why? Because I only wash my hair every other day. Should I invest in some head wraps and sleep-in curlers like Thelma Harper from Mama's Family? Also, how exactly do you tie your hair in a head wrap??? Guess I have to youtube that, huh? Sorry. I didn't think to bring a camera for a before and after shot at the salon. That would have been nice but oh well. All I have is an after shot along with my hair...Ew! Take a look. Buh-bye hair!


  1. your hair is so cute short! that's a big deal for me to say because i'm not a fan of short hair. good for u for donating your hair! if only they'd take my thin, stringy hair trims...yah right!
