Well, my little girl took the plunge!!!! She donated her hair to Locks of Love. Well, we haven't mailed it in yet, but it will be on it's way this next week.
Several years ago I tried to talk her into growing her hair out and giving it away. She wasn't the least bit interested, and even scared. It was my "ploy" to get her to cut her hair, because she wasn't taking care of it at the time. Then it turned into the deal of "if you don't take care of it, I'm cutting it!" and not long after that, I did! After that, she learned to take much better care of her hair, and we have really had fun putting it up, decorating it, brushing it, and all that girly stuff.
Then, about 6 months ago she told me that she wanted to grow it out to donate it. I couldn't believe it. It was so beautiful and long!!! I questioned her several times, but she insisted. So, we finally made the appointment, as she had enough to give away - the minimum is 10 inches.
She was very excited!!! I am so proud of her and she is glad to give it away to someone who can't grow their own. Her's will grow back!!
So, as requested by several friends, here are her before and after pictures!!! And I'm one proud Mama!!
And Daddy's are aloud to be proud, too!!!
