crop happens…

2010/204: Snip

I took Sara to get a haircut a couple of weeks ago. She was actually excited about it and wanted this much cut off! I guess she finally got tired of the tangles, and having to have her hair in a braid all day every day. Bet it made her head feel a bit lighter, too!
(Of course this is Texas in July, so she still has braids most days, just to stay a little cooler.)

  1. Wow! That is alot! Was the length donated (locks of Love, etc.?)

    LOVE the photos – what a great way to remember this moment! Sara looks great! 🙂

    (p.s. yeah, I’m up early…art fair starts today… 🙂 )

    • LOL My first thought, when I saw your comment notification, was “wow, she’s up early!”
      Good luck with the art show!!

      No, the hair wasn’t donated, she would have had to have a few more inches cut off for that. I think you need to cut off at least 11 inches??

  2. I thought it was only 9″ to donate. My daughter had considered it, but would have had to cut hers much shorter to reach that length. That is incredibly long hair! I don’t think all of us have the ability to actually grow it that long.

    • I think it depends on who you donate to. I just looked it up, and for Locks Of Love, 10 inches is the minimum. Other places want 12 inches, and Pantene only wants 8 inches.
      I think I told her about donating her hair (or maybe it was Melissa?) but I didn’t want her to cut off more than she was comfortable with.

    Reminds me of when I was a child. I used to have hair like that! Those locks are beautiful!

    wow, I can’t believe that much came off. Her hair is gorgeous!! I heard not to long ago that hair is being used to help w/ the oil spill. I think Paul Mitchell was sponsoring it? Bet that could’ve soaked up alot of oil 😉

    • I heard that, too, Doreen, but I thought it was dog hair??

  5. Great photos! Her hair still looks long. You are such a nice mom for helping her maintain long hair. My oldest wants long hair, but is not good at keeping it washed and brushed. So I never let it get past her shoulders.

    • Well, she’s only 7, so I don’t expect her to really take care of her hair herself just yet. She definitely needs help washing it, but does OK brushing it.
      Melissa has had several haircuts because she refused to keep it washed (or washed WELL), but she’s doing much better now. And she figured out that shorter hair is easier to take care of.

    no, it’s def. human hair, at least what I’m thinking of……..we were talking about it at my salon, they’re the ones who said Paul Mitchell.

  7. Long hair does take such a lot of work. I used to wonder why in books little girls had maids to brush their hair – then I had a bunch of little girls with hair to their waists… a maid would be great!

    It should be a lot less tangle prone 🙂
