ten inches of hair off my very own head. does that look as disturbing to you as it does to me? the last time i pulled this stunt was november 2003. it was twelve inches then.
i first got the idea to cut and donate my hair from my old roommate missy. it was shortly after my brother died so i thought i'd do it in his memory as well as in solidarity with missy.
i enjoy being hair farm. mostly i enjoy getting a liberating cut after some 27 months. makes me feel like i'm floating. i had been annoyed with the length of my hair since summer. i loved the way it looks up in a bun but it just wasn't worth the grooming woes. there were days when i would rather stab myself in the arm than brush all that hair.
anyway, i am debating where i should donate those three ounces of hair. if you know of a non profit organization other than locks of love, please let me know. thanks.
