Cutting my hair and donating to Little Princess Trust

For a long long time now, I've had long hair. Long, thick, unruly hair. I've resisted and resisted having it cut and even when I did go for "the chop" I had MAYBE an inch taken off the bottom. It wasn't until my hairdryer broke at the beginning of November that I really realised how much hair I actually had. I'd already asked for a new hairdryer for Christmas and so was left with a travel hairdryer for SIX weeks. It was like using a toothbrush to mop an arena floor. Add to that, some severe hair envy on Jenna Coleman and suddenly, cutting it all off seemed like a great idea. In the end, I had eight inches cut off my hair and, while I was in the chair, my hairdresser suggest that I donate my hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Little Princess Trust

Firstly, I'd assumed you needed at least ten inches of hair to be able to donate but the hairdresser told me it was only seven. At first, I'd planned on having 4-5 inches cut off my hair but when she told me about the seven inches, I decided to really go for it and donate my ponytail. If you don't know who Little Princess Trust are, you can find them here: http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/

Basically, they are a charity that provide real hair wigs to children and young people who have lost their own hair. Donating is as easy as packaging up your ponytail and posting it.

So now, here I am with my "lob" hair do, loving the simplicity of it, enjoying having a hair style and most of all, hoping that someone, somewhere, will be able to make more use of my hair than I ever did.

If you're thinking of going for the chop, check the Little Princess Trust guidelines on their website and remember, you do NOT have to shave your head or even go really short. It doesn't matter if your hair is dyed or permed either, as long as it is a natural colour. Seven inches or longer and you can donate.


Please do excuse the Snapchat photos...they're the only photos I had on my phone.

My hair probably continued another inch or two past the bottom of this photo.


Again, Snapchat and Instagram selfies are all I've got on my phone but you can easily see the change in length.

As you can see, it's just past my shoulders now and can still be styled. I can tie it up into a mini ponytail, curl it, straighten it...

Would you consider donating your hair?
