A few months ago, I read Jenn's post about donating to Children with Hair Loss (CWHL) and decided to look into it. I'd never heard about CWHL before, but I was intrigued by the fact that they can use shorter lengths (for comparison, Locks of Love requires at least 10", though they do accept permed hair as well). I also liked that they provide all of their hair pieces completely free of charge to the children.
I ended up taking off between 9 and 10 inches, bagged it up, and sent it off. My head feels so much lighter now! I hope the hair can be used for someone, and I look forward to doing it again in another year and a half. If you're looking to donate your hair, definitely consider looking into CWHL.
