I was nervous at first because I was so used to running my fingers down my hair and prettying it up for school. I wasn't sure how short hair would be. But I just took a deep breath and jumped right in. It was a drastic change in my life as I had long hair for years and on that day, I donated 10 inches! I remember looking in the mirror and being taken back by the sight of my short hair. It was going to take some getting used to. But I felt great knowing that my hair was going towards a wonderful cause. It was going to make another little girl very happy and help her get through a really tough time. It was a small sacrifice in order to serve another person. As I see it, it's just hair and it'll grow back. This was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Since then, I've been able to donate my hair two more times. This last weekend, I went in for my fourth donation and brought along my ten year old sister. Boy was she excited to get to donate her hair to another special little girl, too. She was SO eager to do it when I told her I was going in.
