Hair Today…

Well, I did it!  What did I do?

Here’s a hint

This is what my hair looked like prior to 5:15 yesterday evening.  This was taken last week, when I was wearing something black so my hair would show up best.

And here is what my hair looked like at 6:00 last night.

And here is my harvest. They weigh 2.2 ounces total.  I really thought they’d weigh more than that.  Having that long hair was hot and it felt heavy while on my head.

These braids are being donated to Locks of Love and are boxed up and ready for the PO.

What do you think? 

I really like it.  I will let it grow out to about shoulder length beginning next fall, but I think I may keep it short like this over the summer.  It will be much cooler and easier to take care of while I have the chance to work outside.

    It’s darling! You’ll love how easy it is to take care of and how fast it dries. I DO envy your loong blonde locks, though. What a profoundly generous thing to do! Now you’ll have fun all summer playing with that natural curl of yours.

    Your hair is beautiful. I’m sure Locks of Love is going to be thrilled to receive it. Your new “do” is adorable and I bet it feels really good too. I have short hair and I love how it feels…especially in the summertime. 🙂

    It looks good! I bet that you are glad to be free from the weight of your long hair. Enjoy your new look!

    Looks great!!!!! Who ever styled your hair did a great job. I think it’s so very hard to find some who can actually give good hair cuts.

  8. Robin Says:

    It looks nice. I can’t believe how many braids went to locks of love. You must have really thick hair.

    I really like it a lot!!! It’s very soft and becoming. I waist-length hair and did that too about five years ago and also donated my braid, only I couldn’t bring myself to look at it after Gary cut it off. It felt like a part of me was truncated. I haven’t been sorry for a minute.

    Benita, what a cute cut! Looks great on you. And the braid is beautiful too. It will make someone very happy. Good job!

    Wow, what a transformation! You look younger with shorter hair, but it might be the big smile you have, too. Locks of Love is a great way to contribute.
