I let my hair grow for over three years so it would be long enough to get cut off and make wigs for cancer patients.
If I let it hang loose it was driving me crazy getting in my face. In a ponytail it bumped against the backrest in my car. And I was constantly yanking out snarls.
This week I decided it was long enough, and got it cut short.
Ahh, it feels so much better!
But, to my surprise, the only places that accept grey hair for wigs make them for children with various conditions that cause hair loss, not only cancer. I asked why places that make wigs for adults don't accept grey hair and was told adults who want wigs are more fussy and want to be sure the ones they get aren't died.
But don't people with grey hair ever need wigs?
I don't understand, but I hope my hair donation will help improve the life of some kid.
Here are the before and after photos my neighbors took for me:
