I was reading this post the other day on the Frugal Kiwi and I thought ‘why not’?
Don’t get me wrong I love my hair and but mainly it has grown to Biblical lengths because I am too lazy to maintain it. Growing up my mama’s attitude was always that we could do whatever we liked to our hair because it would grow back. I pretty much always had long. By the end of high-school I could tuck my hair into the pockets of my jeans.
Today I made an appointment with the delightful Rebecca of Huntsbury Hair (really lovely salon if you live in Chch and really reasonable as well) and with her help I now have 10 inches of hair winging its way to America to be made into a free wig for a person suffering with cancer and hair loss.
I have donated mine to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths programme.
Last year a friend of mine shaved her head to raise money for a friend battling with cancer and I remember thinking how amazing that was – I must say I am too vain for that! But when I heard about this I felt like this was something I absolutely could do.
Unfortunately unless you want payment for your hair there doesn’t seem to be anywhere in NZ you can do it and even if you do donate the recipient doesn’t get the wig free.
SO…..here’s my new do! I am very happy with it and I hope my hair brings someone else encouragement at a difficult time for them.
You only need 8 inches minimum to send… do you have 8 to spare?? Thanks heaps to Frugal Kiwi for the inspiration and for helping me to flex my generosity muscle.
