Locks of Love

I just made my 10th donation to Locks of Love/ - that's over 9 feet of hair (a few times I've donated 2 feet instead of just one...)

Here's a goofy 'before' shot...

...and an even goofier 'after' shot - Thanks Scout!

It takes me exactly 2 years to grow 12 inches of hair - I think that's fairly typical - 1/2 inch of growth per month. It must be a little bit more because I always get the ends trimmed before they lob off the pony - and we still have the required 12 inches.

So now Scout and I both have Summer Dos - maybe my family will recognize me in August...

good work, that definitely takes will power to not cut it! i did that while I lived in japan for a year. it was easier to not get it cut, cause I didn't trust the japanese stylists. :)

Very impressive donation and I like the new do!
I always get my hair cut, plant garden, etc. by the signs and hair grows faster or slower depending upon signs. A lot of people think it's crazy but works for me.
