Middie, I have been trying to grow my hair out for a few years but it doesn't grow much. When I was younger it would grow to my shoulder blades but no farther. Now it won't even get that long. I don't dye my hair or anything, but there was a section that was just getting frizzy, so I just got mine cut pretty short (to my jaw-line). What Alix said about using too much shampoo is so true! I was good about it this time, but I have gotten my hair cut way shorter before and it was hard to adjust the amount of shampoo. I think the weirdest thing is the first time you comb it after washing it. You expect the comb to keep going and suddenly it is just in the air! Or worse, you scrape your neck! You did a very nice thing Middie, and I'm proud of you.

Barbara

Thank you everyone for your kind words. You're making me feel better about myself now !
Thanks for the inf. Middie! I was going to ask my sylist when I went to him next if I was a canidate or not. If so then I will def. donate when the time comes for me to cut it.

I was talking to my stylist telling her about our granddaughters doing this. She says it has to be at least 10" and in a pony tail. she had one she was getting ready to send off.

Yes I saw that. Right now its about 14 inches from where I'd have the length cut. I'm going to let it grow about 2 more inches though because I haven't had my hair down to my rear in forever. I usually get too impatient. It grows like a weed so I'm lucky. Had I known all this before I could of been donating for years. I'll def. be passing on this information to my friends.

I always sent highlighted hair they will do what they need to to it my last donation was at least 14 inches or more.What I would like to see is the process they go thru to decide what they will do with the hair donations and I would really love to know what they did with my hair or maybe a combination of mine and someone else and who got the hair. If we could see that I think more people would be motivated to donate, men with long hair included.

You know it's kind of sweet because there's about 4 of us from work that donated hair. So the people that don't have long hair is going and getting their hair cut shorter to show their support of us.

The store manager is thinking about sending the story to headquarters and having them put it in the 880 paper employees get in the mail.

That would be really neat. In fact, I think someone should tell the local newspaper or TV station. They are always looking for heartwarming human-interest stories.
