Short Hair Don’t Care

If you haven’t noticed I cut my hair!  It’s a good 10-11” shorter now.  I was always planning on cutting it, but was only going to do 5” or so.  I was talking to my sister and she said, “Why don’t you donate it?”  I said, “Because I don’t want to cut 12” off.”  She told me that through Pantene the minimum was 8”.  I got to thinking, 8” isn’t so bad.  It won’t look super short plus I needed a change.  My long hair was getting in the way.  It was tucking into my pants, it was getting in my food and it was just getting annoying.  When I went to get it cut at Shaylee Burr’s house (yes, she is the one who takes my pictures too.  She does it all people!) we first put it in a ponytail and measured 8”.  If I would have done 8” it still would have been in the middle of my back.  I told her to do 10” and she did!  It was so weird to hold my long long hair that took me forever to grow out in my hands.  My husband, Daniel was there and when we were done cutting the ponytail he put it at the back of his neck and it looked like he had a long pony.  (Pics of him are at the bottom)  It was so funny.  I love his sense of humor!  After I did it, I didn’t have cutters remorse.  I was so happy with my decision and I’m glad it can help to make real wigs for women who have cancer.  If you have long hair and want to cut and donate it, DO IT!  Before you do, make sure you meet the requirements on their website.  If you do end up cutting and donating it please let me know.  Email me or DM me on Instagram @themelissaedition.  Happy Day before the weekend!
