Like most women, I grew my hair out for my wedding day. I wanted long, luscious locks in my wedding pictures, and put up with the heat, weight and annoyance of unusually long hair for a long time in order to achieve that. With my wedding behind me, I decided it was time to get rid of the super long hair and go for a more short, chic, and married-life-friendly haircut. Rather than waste all that hair, I decided to donate it to Locks of Love.
Locks of Love is an organization that makes hairpieces for disadvantaged children with medical hair loss. They accept donations of clean, dry, unbleached hair in lengths of 10″ or more. The hair must be braided or tied in a pony tail.
I’m pretty sure my hair will never again be as long as it was on my wedding day, and I’m also pretty sure that that is the case for many brides. Since you’ve already grown your hair out so much, why not do something good with it? It will give you good karma for your wedded life.
