So I cut my hair today


LizHaircutsmall, originally uploaded by lizzibabe.

I cut off my long long hair and I'm going to donate the ponytail to somebody. I don't know if it'll be Locks of Love or Wigs For Kids, or somebody else. hnybny encouraged me to research Locks of Love a little more and I found an article pointing out that in 10 years, Locks of Love has only made 1400 wigs, while Pantene Beautiful Lengths has made 2,000 wigs in one single year. That statistic bothered me a great deal. I need to research some more before I mail off my ponytail.

Way cute. I did lots of research on Locks of Love when I was cutting my hair, and I wouldn't give them an inch or a dime, if I were you.

Very nice!

I've heard much better things about the Beautiful Lengths program, too. I donated to Locks of Love twice (for the free haircuts, for which they no longer list vendors on their website), but since then I've heard horrible things about them. Plus, the Beautiful Lengths program uses the hair for women with cancer-based hair loss, which really hits home for me. If I ever get around to cutting my hair again (it's long since time), I'll be donating to them.

I like the new look! Cute! :)

... and I know we've mentioned Wigs for Kids - when ratlan did this, we found the same thing, that of all the "big name" hair donation places, Locks of Love has one of the worst track records for efficient use of donations. So we went with WfK.
