Locks of Love

This post is not a review of anything, but I thought I’d share something I’ve been working on for a while now. I’ve always cut my hair really short, mostly because I just prefer it that way. I’ve gotten compliments on my hair on how thick it is, how dark, etc. and to be honest it just seems normal to me haha. My mom would always joke to me, “Your hair would make a nice wig,” and that got me thinking. I decided to start growing out my hair so that I can donate it to Locks of Love.



If you don’t know about Locks of Love, here is there mission:




I decided to grow out my hair in December of 2010 and I still have some growing to do. The minimum length to donate is 10 inches and when I started my hair was really short. Here are some pictures of my hair when I first started growing it out:

I still have a lot of hair growing to do, but I’m committed to it. I have also been trying to take care of my hair by not using many heating products and by using moisturizing shampoos.  If giving my hair makes at least one person smile, makes them feel beautiful, and for a moment not worry about there condition then this is all worth it. I will write another post in the future when I donate my hair so you can see how long it ends up being Smile


Have you guys ever donated to Locks of Love? If so how long was your hair?


Until text time, stay pretty❤
