When I was little, I always had long, thick, dark brown hair, and I hated getting it cut. I would cling to it like a thick brown security blanket. It wasn't until I finished high school that I discovered the joys of changing your hairstyle, and especially over the past few years, it has changed fairly often. About a year ago, because of budgetary concerns and because it is something I always wanted to do, I made the decision to grow out my hair so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. I have slowly been saving up my dollars and growing out those inches to have the required 10" of hair. Finally, yesterday I reached my goal, and was able to go from this:
About a foot of hair gone and approximately 5 pounds lost in about an hour.
