Beautiful Lengths

16 July 2008
We spent the weekend visiting with my in laws. At some point, I mentioned wanting to get my hair cut. Less than an hour later, I had 11 inches less hair. My sister-in-law Tammy had told me about Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program and it didn't take me long to decide to participate. They make real hair wigs for women battling cancer. I urge you to please go to their site to learn more about this terrific program. They only require your pony tail be 8 inches long, but we cut mine longer to compensate for how much it curls up when dry and to achieve the style my mother-in-law wanted me to have. My new do looks great and I am thrilled to be helping such a worthy cause. I can't wait to grow my hair out and do it again!

Click here for the requirements for donating hair.

I will post the pics later, in my Wordless Wednesday post.

I think this is so awesome I have cut so many women and young girls hair of for Locks of love which is very simular. They make wigs for children with cancer and alopecia. They require 11 inches though so I am happy you posted this link. Coming from a family who has battled cancer we appeciate your sacrifice! God Bless you....

Wow. I think I'm going to have to do this - haven't had a hair cut since Nov. 1st, so if I wait a few months more, I'll have a year's worth of hair to donate.

Thanks for letting us know about such a great cause!
