A couple of months ago I found out that a very dear family member has breast cancer and they are starting her out with chemo to reduce the golf ball size tumor. Through her treatment she has already started losing her hair. She has not gotten to the point of shaving it - so I thought - why not do mine anyways to show her my support! I asked my hubby if it would be ok to shave mine and donate the 24+ inches of thick hair to Locks of Love. He said he would love to do the honors.
- use less shampoo
- got to see that I have a pretty head under all this hair - although very white! :)
- it's just hair - it will grow back
- get to try out fun wigs
- less hair in the drains
2012 UPDATE: Well as you can see, I kept the Mohawk for a little while :) My favorite haircut to date :)
