If the excessive heat was your drive for a pixie or you simply miss the short/easy/fast hair you had once... A short cut, literally, is your way to go! Buy some magazines to check latest styles... and when you go for it, please, donate your hair!
Most people know you can donate your hair to make wigs for "cancer patients", right? (see details ahead). How about donating your hair to Matter of Trust? They make hair booms and hair mats that are right now been sent 100% to the golf water spill, the worse disaster on our planet!
Bleached highlights? Don't want to cut your hair short? NO problem! Don't throw your hair away! Matter of Trust is taking ANY human HEAD hair or any pet hair! Actually, if you are reading this, tell your hair stylist or local pet store about it! They get hair of any length, as long as it doesn't have any trash. It's so simple! All they ask for is that you place the hair on a plastic or trash bag. That's it! Take a look at what they are doing, it is cool!
Now, if your hair is NOT bleached, you can consider any of the companies bellow and help kids who lost their hair and their confidence, to smile again! Research shows that hair loss was considered by the majority of cancer patients the worse side effect of chemotherapy. But doing my research I found out the most children affected by hair loss actually suffer from alopecia. If dealing with hair loss is difficult for adults, imagine how hard it is for children and teens! If your child suffers from alopecia this site offers support!
If you wish to donate to this cause, you will have only to wash and dry the hair and send int in one or more ponytails following the directions of your chosen company. Length requirements vary from 8 to 12 inches. Some companies take even permed hair, again, as long as it has no bleach. To sterilize your hair, a chemical is used and if your hair is bleached it will not be suited for that process and Matter of Trust is your best bet! Pick yours:
