Today I did something I never have done before, I cut my hair REALLY Short AND DYED IT! Its so short that I know my parents and likely siblings would not approve. But that isn’t any of their business now is it? I am certainly not beholden to antiquated sexist stereotypes, so I’m having fun with THIS round of donating my hair (Angel Hair for Kids™ is a program of A Child’s Voice Foundation™ that provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disadvantaged children in Canada who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment).

Yep, since I’ve become an adult, every time I’ve ever cut my hair I’ve donated it. [Addendum] This started with a conversation about heritages with my high school mates that led to talking about our natural hair colors, how they changed as we aged and hair dying – one member said that they are a red head, to which we all said that it doesn’t look red, it definitely looked blond to us. They responded that that wasn’t their hair, it was a wig. Having a condition that had them loose their hair which was red and that they wear blond wigs because red haired wigs are actually rare. To which I vowed to always let my hair grow out to donate for fellow red heads who needed it [/Addendum]. But every other time I had my hair cut to shoulder length – This is a big change. And I AM having fun, because (shocker) hair grows back!

So, Here is the Before and After Shots….

The Big surprise was feeling the wind ruffle my hair at the back of my head, then I noticed that I was leaning my head more forward than needed because my head is now lighter – than ever before! I am sure that this time around I’ll be visiting the hair dresser a little more often and not donated the next few times as I style it as it grows.
