One of the things I love about long (very straight) hair is that there is no such thing as bedhead. Seriously, I could roll out of bed and brush my hair and it would look just as good as if I’d washed it (and sometimes better LOL).
Those days are over for now.
About a year ago, I realized my hair was getting pretty long and decided to just let it grow until I got tired of it and then donate it. I did some research and found a group I wanted to donate to: Children with Hair Loss.
I chose Children with Hair Loss for 3 reasons:
- I like that they give free wigs and care kits to kids who are experiencing hair loss for any reason (and as far as I can tell from internet research, they are a legit company with a good record.)
- They only required 8″
- They take grey hair (mine isn’t far from completely grey, but I have quite a few sections of grey)
All that remained was to get tired of having long hair.
Nike took care of that for me. I was already kind of tired of the long hair, but after spending 2+ hours of running unwrapping my ponytail from around my neck, I was DONE.
Tuesday night, Shoo cut of 10 inches of hair for me. (Yes, I did let my child cut my hair. )
What it looks like after a visit to the stylist:
The rain finally seems to be done, so hopefully I’ll be taking my new ‘do out on its maiden run today. I’m going to guess it’s going to be a “hats all the time” sort of summer. Guess that gives me a good excuse to go hat shopping LOL.
Now to figure out what to do with it when I wake up and it’s going in every direction…
Coming up this weekend: Half marathon #10 – Frederick Running Festival Half Marathon.
