I Cut My Hair and Donate It To A Good Cause

Since I came back from my vacation in july I had the thought to cut my hair to a long bob. I was still in a doubt. One moment I wanted to keep my long hair and the other moment I wanted to cut it. Untill two weeks ago. I was sick of my long hair. I really mean that. I had my longhair  for about 4 years and it was time for something else. Something new, something fresh and something shorter. My hairdresses was shocked when I told her I wanted to cut off my long hair. But I had made my decision, I wanted shorter hair. 

First I wanted to have a long bob. I talked about it with my hairdresses en we where going through pictures. But because my hair is growing so fast, we decided to cut it to a bob. The moment that she cut my long hair, about 30 cm/12 inch, I decided that I wanted to donate my hair for a good cause. I would be a shame if I just throw it away. Here in the Netherlands we have a few foundations that collect donated hair to make wigs for cancer patients. I decided to donate my hair to a foundation that use donated hair to make wigs for woman with breast cancer. 

If you thinking about to cut of your long hair, think about to donate it. It's for a good cause and there are people that really need it. Take a look on the internet and look for foundations in your country or area that collect donated hair.

I'm happy with my new hair. It was time for a new fresh hair cut and this looks so much more grown up. It sounds silly, but that long hair looked girly on me. I'm still figuring out how to style my hair or how to do different stylings, but I'm working on it.


  1. I think donating hair is a brilliant idea. It's such an easy way to selflessly help someone out! Well done to you.

  12. I recently had all my long hair cut short too. I'm not sure how I feel about my decision - I'm just wishing it would grow faster! My top tip for short hair is texturising products though - they make all the difference and give so much body to shorter hair!
