Hair Donation


If you've been following my blog for a little while you might know how long my hair is. Was. A few days ago I decided to finally do it: make someone else happy with my hair...




This is my hair before the hair dresser did her magic... I used to love my long hair, but since a few weeks it had started to annoy me. It was too long, too thin and it made me feel like I looked boring. When I looked around me I saw crowds of little teenage girls, with long thin hair hanging angelic around their face. They all looked pretty, but not like something that matches my personality. However, with my long hair I did look like them and I realized I was in for something new. Away with the hair!

This is me just after it was cut. I'm perfectly satisfied with my new hairdo! It feels thick and looks healthy.  I definitely feel 'me' again... But the best part is yet to come... The hair that was cut off will be used for the production of wigs for women with breast cancer (and therefore chemotherapy) who don't have enough income to purchase their own wig. My mother has been fighting her own battle with spread breast cancer for almost three years now. Even though she cannot be healed, she's still going strong. I'm a woman of words, but I don't like to talk about it. I'd rather show my respect and appreciation through actions. This was an action I just had to do, I'd told myself.

The fact that my hair can make someone else happy, makes me happy. It even makes me love that 'horribly thin and dead hair' I used have.

Lots Of Love,

Masja
