      I called the aveda school where I get my hair cut to see how the handle donations. They said that if you do locks of love they will mail it for you & give you 50% off the haircut. If you want to send it to pantene, you have to mail it yourself. I'll probably just do locks of love. I had read some articles about them before that made me not so sure if they run the charity well, so I was looking at other options. But, it's better than just throwing it away. It mostly sounds like they get more hair than they can keep up with & would prefer cash donations. That is why I thought I'd sell the hair & donate the way I wanted. but, I'm finding I'm not patient enough to wait for a buyer. people want to buy freshly cut hair so you can't just chop it & wait. I'm leaving my ad on hairtrader just to see if I ever get a real offer. I'll let people know how it goes incase anyone wants to try that. So far I just had someone ask if I'd let them give me a military cut as a hair model. Nope!

      I like my hair, but I'm too lazy to ever fix it. I have it in a ponytail every day so I'd be happy to know someone out there is wearing it down & treating it the way it deserves.

      I have my new contacts in now. It took me about an hour to get them in the first time. I was so embarrassed with how much time I took up. I was able to get them in on one try after that, but I just couldn't get past the initial freakout.

        This is the article I read about locks of love that made me want to sell my hair myself & donate the money http://www.nytimes.c...on/06locks.html

        I hate to imagine it just getting tossed in the trash after I've spent so long detangling this mop to grow it out.

              Good luck with your make-over Morgan! Cant wait to see the "after" pics. My hair is the same length as yours, but I haven't got the balls to do a chop yet, even though it's gross and split-endy.

              I couldn't live without my contacts. Love 'em. O2 Optix are the best. You'll get used to poking around in your eyes

                  My daughter did something very similar to you Morgan. Grew her hair long for the wedding then let it grow for about another year until she couldn't stand it any longer. It was to her waist when she cut it and donated the hair (I think to Locks of Love but not really sure). Really short in the back and longer in the front but her hair is very curly and she lets it dry like that. Can't wait to see your after pictures!
