Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Yes, I just went there.  Super cheesy, I know, but I couldn't resist. When it comes to my hair I seem to have a 2 year cycle. I grow my hair out for a couple years, cut it all off, and then swear I'll never cut it short again.

It was close to a 3 or 4 year cycle this time, but the urge to chop it all was finally more than I could resist. I love having hair to the middle of my back, but I always wind up pulling it into a pony tail or top not. Especially during the summer, I always want my hair off my neck.  

Every time I make the big cut, I make sure I cut off enough to donate. I have donated to both Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths in the past. They are both great organizations that help make wigs for those in need. This go round I decided to donate to Pantene again. They team with a partner company and The American Cancer Society to make wigs for women battling cancer. Their minimum length requirement is 8". I hacked off between 9-10". I still have long enough hair to pull it back into a pony tail, or more importantly enough for a fancy wedding up do come August. 

I love how light my hair feels, and I'm happy with how it looks too. No tears of regret after this cut. I'm sure I'll have a freak out moment when I shower in the morning, but right now I'm beyond thrilled with shorter hair.
