Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Tomorrow, I am donating my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.  8 inches will be given to Pantene and used to make wigs for cancer patients.

I had thought about and come very close to donating back in September. But at that timeif i had cut it, it would not have been long enough for me to put it in a ponytail. And there was NO way I was going to run a half marathon and NOT be able to put my hair up in a ponytail.

Now that I'm not training for anything "big" I think I will be able to handle not being able to put my hair up.  Although it will be a hard habit to break as my hair is usually up 80% of the day it seems like. 

I will post pictures tomorrow of the before and after!

PS - my no soft drinks is going ok..... i haven't had any but have been craving them.  it's not the caffeine i have the need for but the carbonation, the little bubbles bursting on my tongue.   but i know i just need to stay strong and it will pass, eventually.


  1. I donated my hair to locks of love in college. It was a huge adjustment, but totally worth it!

    Also, if you need the carbonation, you should try the carbonated flavored waters they have at walmart or most grocery stores. They are delicious and really hit the spot.

  2. Way to go on the no soda!! I know it is tough but hang in there.
