My Daughter’s Hair………

My daughter decided she wanted to cut her hair.  This will be the fourth donation to “Loc’s of Love.”  You must donate in 10″ segments.  She said her hair is just so heavy that it was starting to make her head hurt.

Soooo off to Cartoon Cuts we went…..They will do the hair cuts for free when donating to LOL. Her hair is so thick that they usually get two pony tails out of it.  That is the only way they can cut hers.

Last night I gave her hair  treatment then shampooed it for her.  Oh my goodness…!!!  Her hair felt like it weighed 20lbs after getting it wet.

I spent an hour combing out her hair and just playing with it….It is so pretty and thick.

I took some before and after pictures to show the difference……and boy what a difference it is………..:)



She loves it!!  Says it’s much cooler and easier to get off her neck without making her head hurt.  She has gorgeous hair and is such a lovely young lady.

The hairdresser who cut her hair thought she was at least 17-18 years of age and stopped, dumbfounded.  Colleen just grinned and said, “Nope, I’m only 13..:)”

  1. She really does have beautiful hair. It looks great long and much shorter. I’m glad that she won’t be getting headaches from it any more.

    Did you read that it’s not her hair giving her headaches? It’s really global warming that is causing them. 😉

  7. I like it both ways, but I have to admit that I am a fan of shorter hair like hers is now becuase mine is thick and heavy as well when it gets long. So is DD#1. Now she has short hair as well.

  10. wow… what beautiful hair… that was cool that she donated it like that. I understand the feeling of getting long hair cut off and how it feels different. I use to have really long hair, a long time ago!!

  11. Your daughter is a GEM with wonderful hair! I am so glad she can do this for others. My Grandmother was graced with a Lock of Love wig.

    Now, is her hair thick as in the strands, or is it thick as in there are just so many hairs on her head! I’m guessing the second…

  13. What beautiful hair! I could have so much fun with it! (You can take the hairdresser out of the salon, but you can’t take the salon out of the hairdresser!) Hehehehehehe!
