Frizz On Purpose

I'm frizzing my hair.

Why on earth would someone do that? you ask in [understandable] bewilderment.

Because tomorrow I'm donating my hair (gulp), and one of the many things required is that mine have no product on it. I wasn't sure if conditioner counted (since it coats the hair and leaves a smoothing film), so I didn't even use that. Now it's all air-drying into a puffy, frizzy mess.
You can see how I feel about THAT.

It's worth it. And I'm glad I can do this for someone who's going through so much.

Not everyone wants to grow their hair to their butt and then chop it off (today is the last day I'll have to use huge handfuls of shampoo!), but that doesn't mean you can't make a difference. Over at Makeup and Beauty Blog, Karen is matching donations you make to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. If you were thinking of giving, this is a great way to do it.

UPDATE: The salon asked me to straighten my hair ahead of time because it's SO curly, SO long, and SO thick. After an hour with the straightener, this is the result: Now you know why hair product is vital if one doesn't intend to look like a furry creature.

Still worth it...

omg you're so cute in that shot! How short are you going?

I always want to but I'm pretty sure my highlighted hair is a no-no.

...also, I like a little frizz every now an then!

I can't believe you're cutting off all your hair! It's such a good cause though. My mom would be proud. I'm proud. : )

I hadn't realized that you'd let it get THAT long! My goodness! And why would they want you to straighten it? Doesn't that kinda damage the hair??

Whoa, that's a lotta hair! When I donated mine, they had to put it in two ponytails to cut it, and judging by the looks of that mane you'll need about 7! I think you'll be happy with the end result - I felt awesome! Partially because I new I had done something good, and partially because my head felt about 10 pounds lighter ;)

I'm so proud of you, Christina! And the new hair is JUST as beautiful as the old, if not MORE lovely! Thank you for helping people like my Mom who, like you said, are going through so much! It means SO much to those who receive your gift! It's an important and worthy and life changing cause!
