It’s a new year, so you’re maybe thinking of a new hairstyle.
If you like drastic changes, consider donating the hair you’re chopping off to help make wigs for women and children who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment.
Note that your hair must be chemically untreated (no dyes or perms). It took me awhile to do this because I’ve always had a little bit of something in my hair since I was 16.
If you have at least 8″ of hair to donate, you can send it to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which is a partnership program with the Canadian Cancer Society. If you have at least 12″ to donate, you can donate to the Angel Hair for Kids.
In the summer, I was able to cut off 12 inches! Here’s the before and after photo (of what my stepdaughter calls “the mom cut” :))
