It's Still Christmas....


Some weeks can be very trying.....I went to the salon on Friday to get some hightlights and cut a few inches off my hair. I found a picture of a simple cut that was to hang about to my collar bone...a nice length I thought. My beautician said that I had 10 inches of hair that I could give to Locks of Love...where they use human hair to make wigs for cancer patients. I was very suprised to hear that I had THAT much hair...didn't realize it was that long....wellllll...it wasn't and she cut it way, way, too short. Talk about shock....my dh hates short hair...and there was no getting around it...it is SHORT..I wiLL NOT be sharing a pic until it grows to the length I had been hoping for...if you remember in the pic I posted a few months ago...I have (had) long curly hair.
Well...I had two choices...and I am choosing that my hair grows fast...it is Christmas and someone out there is getting my long hair for their new wig. I am ok with it...Kinda like the Gift of the Magi....it's okay it's Christmas and my hair will grow...my dh is disappointed...but is okay with it....we are all okay.
Merry Christmas to you all...I am sending a pic of my Coke Santa that my Mom bought for me right before she left for Florida...it makes me smile. Again, Merry Christmas!!!!

I would LOVE to cut my hair...kinda sorta...but I'm too afraid and it would just crush my Hubby too....I bet it will grow back fast for you!! I'm sure it looks cute even though you may not think so!!

Right now my hair just makes the 7 inch length for that Pantene hair donation program. I have been growing it for ages so I could donate it, but man I am going to have one very short bob once I cut it off! (Which will be soon, I cannot stand it this long very much longer.)

Sorry to hear about the bad haircut, Dianntha, but I think you have a great attitude. It will grow again. Hang in there.

Oh I feel for you, I once had an experience too.... I asked for a bob below my chin and she cut it level with my ears! It was a home visit so I wasnt at a mirror... I cried. Although I must say it grew into a lovley style and It felt quite good to be short.......

Have a wonderful christmas

Oh I am so sorry for your loss. I had that happen years ago when mine was at my waist and the cut was shocking up to mid back. It will grow. I hope you have scarf and hat for warmth.
Years ago I drank knox gelitan to speed up hair growth. I am not sure if it really works but your nails grow out faster.
