I Finally Did It!!

I have been wanting to have my hair cut done but couldn't find time to go to the Salon. It's just hard for a busy mom like me with three kids to schedule an appointment. I love being a WAHM but sometimes I would like to be able to leave home and have some me time alone. Oh well, it is just impossible especially hubby is seldom home. 

I have a very thick hair with coarse texture, and when it's wet after taking a shower, it feels heavy and it gives me a headache. It gets in the way too when I work around the house so I usually make a pony tail or braid it. I am blessed with a beautiful hair but don't have enough time to take care of it. It takes a lot longer to dry it without the help of the hair blower and takes 30 minutes to an hour to iron it with flat iron.

Finally, yesterday I was able to book an appointment and today had my haircut done. I was very glad and excited because this haircut was not only for own benefit but also I am donating my hair to Locks Of Love a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada for those who are suffering from long-term hair lose due to any diagnosis.

The last time I had my hair cut short(shoulder length) was three years ago. I really love having a long hair so it took me a couple of months to decide.

Locks of love required 10" minimum hair length for donation. They accept any length but whatever below 10" will be sold to offset the manufacturing cost.

Well, ladies and gentlemen!! Introducing, the new me. What do you think of my new haircut? My hubby and kids love it and I love it too.

    1. Good for you sis you know how to cut your hair. I couldn't trust my hubby with scissors ha ha. I don't have a skill too. I seldom go to Salon but when I do, it's usually I badly need a haircut.

  2. I am one who is very nervous about letting anyone else cut my hair. Your hair looks great! Maybe I'll consider going to some place. :)

    1. Ms. Marie I am the opposite. I am nervous if I cut my hair and turn out wrong so I better leave it to the expert ha ha. This is my second hair cut since I have been in the US.
