I have thought about growing my hair out and then getting it cut for the locks of love. I think it would be my way of giving back. I cant give much but i can atleast do that. Has anyone done that? or reccomend doing that? and does your hair have to be a certain length to do it?

My best friend did that a few years ago. She let her hair grow out almost to the middle of her back and then put it in a pony tail and whacked it off at the neck. She said that she felt wonderful because not only did she help someone in need but she also had a reason to change her hairstyle :-) Its funny that you have posted this, or that I happened to come across it today bacause just last week i was commenting on how long her hair had gotten once again and she smiled and said "i hope whoever gets it this time enjoys it as much as I have". Needless to say, shes gonna whack it off again.

My hair is just about to the middle of my back. i think i might let it get a little longer before i do that because my fiance doesnt like short hair so when they cut it i dont want it to be to short cause then he will get mad lol.

I have never done that before, but one of my friends did at one point. She had really long hair cause she never cut it up until she was 17, I think. I can't remember how much you actually have to have though to be able to donate it. I think it would be cool to donate hair to locks of love, but my hair naturally doesn't seem to grow very long for some reason. I can go for years without really cutting it and it just won't grow past a certain point. Anyway, I think it's a really great organization and definitely worth contributing to.

Yea i have thought about it and thought about it but i want to make sure i have enough to where i dont have to go all the way to my sholders with it. ill be happy if i can keep it a little bit below my sholders but still have enough to give. i dont have enough money to give any away so at least this is something i could do once i grow it a little longer.
