I plan to wait for my birthday which is about two months to cut my long hair. I just cannot wait for two months. I decided to have my hair cut two days ago. I took a shower and drove to a hair saloon called Fantastic Sam. I also have a coupon for the saloon so why not use it, right? It is my first time to have a hair cut in this saloon. It is also close to Big Lots store which I need to buy snacks for the little girl for school.
There were two women smoking outside. It makes me uncomfortable walking to the saloon. I just cannot stand the smell of cigarette. They thought that I am going to have my nails done. They both stand up when they see me walking straight to the saloon. I hold my breath until I am inside the saloon.
I told them that I will have a hair cut. I want to donate my hair to Locks of Love. I am not sure if it is enough to donate. The hairdresser measure my hair and she is it is way too long to donate. I am very happy for that. The hairdresser sounds so happy that I will donate my hair. She said you go girl for donating your hair. She asks me if it is my original hair color. I just smiled at her and said yes, this is my original hair color. She also told me that I have a beautiful thick hair. She asks me how I take care of my hair. I just said I use regular shampoo. The hairdresser is very pretty, in her mid-20. I really like her long curly hair. I always like curly hair. She has a natural curly hair. She said anytime she wants to trade her hair with mine. I also told her that I will turn 40 years old. She said no way you look too young for being 40 years old. I think it is just a number. It is how the way you take care of yourself.
She cut my hair right on the shoulder after cutting at least 10” off my long hair. I told her that you can cut it very short. She cut my hair all the way from chin. I also ask her if she could trim my bangs. The saloon is not busy which I am thankful for. I do like my new short hair. She gives me a bag for my hair that I will donate. I ask her if she has a form available for me to sign. She said they do not have any form which is fine with me. I was about to pay for my haircut. I was surprise that she said that I am all set. I did not know that it is free once you donate your hair to Locks of Love. I ask her are you serious that is free? She said yes, it is free. I gave her a $10 tip for cutting my hair.
By the way, Locks of Love is an organization where you can donate your hair for the cancer kids. It is the best thing that I did for my hair. I am very proud of what I did. My hair grows fast so I do not worry about having short hair. I promise myself that I will donate my hair every October. It is a month of breast cancer awareness too. My eldest sister is a breast cancer as well.
The next day, I went to the library. I print a form to use when sending my hair. The Locks of Love office is in Florida. I mailed it through priority mail. I hope that I can make a little girl happy with my donated hair.
