    and completely off topic (and don't really expect anyone to give a hoot, lol) but I just got home from having a total of 22" cut off my hair and a change in color. I went from sitting on my hair to (feeling like I am) looking ready for boot camp. Gonna be quite an adjustment. Just a bit unsettled. Thanks for "listening". :er:

    Did the color change from shock? ;)



    Give it some time, it will grow on you...:mrgreen:








    P.S. - were you donating your locks?

    Actually, I was going to but was told it's not "right" for donation because it's color-treated and naturally curly. Other than the stylist, I wouldn't know who else to ask. I do have a disconnected 20" pony tail, now, though. She cut it off right above the braid, then clipped the other 2.5" from what was left. Suggestions in case she was wrong?

    My condolences. I feel your pain, but not as bad as you must. A couple of years ago I got 12" cut off and this past another 7" whacked. It still hits my shoulders, but just not quite the same. That, and a lot more grey. :lol:

    I'm doing this next week. Lol must be the season. I'm not sure how short I will go but definetly doing a dramatic color change. Currently its down to almost by jean waistband when wet and I'm sick of it getting wrapped underneath me when I sleep.

    WHERE ARE THE PICS... lol.

    I'm pretty sure you can donate it even if colored.

    Would be a nice thing to do. And to jump on the bandwagon - where are the before and after pics? :)

    For all those saying they are about to do the same thing, I wish you luck. It feels liberating at the same time as it feels like a punch to the stomach. Odd feeling, I assure you, lol. It is especially scary to do something this drastic at 42. I guess I've lost that adventurous edge, a bit, from when I was younger.

    Thanks for the info on locks of love. I guess I'll try that more direct route. I'm happy to try.

    Ok, here is a before the cut and after duo.

    My husband's reaction was, well, shall we say "less than pleased" and let it go at that. He did pity me, though, bc it was always getting caught on stuff, being shut in doors, getting yanked at night, etc. At least he understands why I wanted it gone.
