As Billy Cryatal said, "Dahling, you look maaahrvelous!

What a great thing to do. Much better than leaving it on the floor.

"My hair tends to get wavy when I cut it short"

Amber my hair is naturally curly, so you can imagine what it looks like short lol.

Hey, I'm jealous that you actually had enough hair that Locks of Love wanted it (I've had a couple of friends donate hair). Last year eczema and psoriosis took a lot of my hair (not to mention scalp --- to include hair folicals that will never come back). All I can say is enjoy that new-found light-headed, naked feeling. Some of us will never have the choice of long hair again!

What a selfless thing to do. I don't think we have that here but I wish we did. My mum had ovarian cancer and had to get a wig, it would have been so lovely if it could have been real hair.
You are a lovely person for doing this.

You did a wonderful thing, Middie! Your hair will grow back out and you've given another person the chance for a beautiful wig to cover their bare head. My mother had a wonderful wig of real hair when she was going through all the chemo. It was so nice for her to have something real instead of sythetic hair. She was so upset when she lost her hair. When she got her wig though, she loved it and didn't feel so insecure. Thank you for doing such a selfless thing!!

It is a big shock to go from really long hair to really short isn't it middie? Kate did that last summer. Donated 15 inches of her hair. It was really weird to see her with short hair at first. I bet you will be used to your new look within a week or so though. The biggest adjustment is always in the shower, you invariably try to use WAY too much shampoo at first! LOL. Way to go Middie, you have beautiful hair and someone will be so grateful to have a wig made from your donation.

Congratualtions! You did a wonderful thing. I saw Ann Curry on Today and thought since I hadn't had a haircut in over a year I'd let mine grow longer and do the same thing. I was fortunate I didn't have to have chemo and have my hair fall out so I thought it would be a cool thing to do. Alas the medication they put me on causes thinning hair in something like one woman in a 1000. Had to get it cut to take the stress off it, it helped some, but it's still thinning. I'm just lucky to have hair!

Middie, you are a very special person. Good for you. And I am sure you are just as beautiful with short hair as you were with long. And we all know how beautiful you are inside.
