Today I donated 9.5 inches of my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Secured and ready to chop.

After the 9.5 inches were lobbed off.

All cut and styled. I felt like I lost about 10 pounds.

I chose to donate to Beautiful Lengths for a few reasons – their length requirement is eight inches (much less than other foundations) and they donate their wigs to adult women who have lost their hair due to cancer. It's humbling to know that my hair will help comfort a woman without hair.

I didn't realize how dense my hair was. No wonder it took me so long to blow-dry it.

To top it off, I love my new (low maintenance) hair.

What a beautiful gift! Thank you so much for being so generous. My mom is battling breast cancer right now for the second time and because of women like you she has a natural wig of hair and no one can tell the difference. It makes the battle have one less hurdle. Thanks!!

Fantastic! I've been growing mine out to do exactly the same thing.
You look wonderful.

An excellent way to show you care, and your new cut is terrific.
