Cutting my hair off for charity!

I love to participate in charity work, so when i heard that people cut their hair to be made in to wigs for people undergoing chemotherapy i knew that was what i wanted to do. My hair was very long, and so it was a great length to make a wig, and also i fancied a change - i had never had it really short before.

Not only was it fun to have a completely different hair do, i also really enjoyed donating to such a great cause! In total i had 13 inches off my head - which is so crazy! My head feels a lot lighter, and i actually love my hair short, which surprised me!

Here's a before and after -



This was such a fun thing to do, and i was so excited when my hairdresser started chopping off my ponytail. I definitely recommend giving this a go, if you are thinking about it as it really goes to a great cause!

A snap of my chopped ponytail -



So once it was cut off i sent it off to Little Princess Trust ready to be made in to a wig! It is a great charity and i highly recommend checking their website out, as there is lots of great information on there.

Thanks for reading Xx

  9. I'm about to have a load of my length, even though i had 15cm off a couple of months ago. It's a shame my hair has been so ruined by bleach, its no use to anyone!
