Ever since the movie the Bucket List came out I have had these thoughts about what would be on mine. I haven't actually written anything down...which I know is part of the process, but seeing as I don't have to many at the moment its okay ;)

One of the things that I've wanted to do is donate my hair to locks of love. And I wanted to do it before I started going grey. Reason being I have never colored my hair except for once in 1998 when I put some highlights in and never kept them up. I love the color of my hair (vain I know) and my biggest fear is finding the color to match once the inevitable happens. This is where Locks of love comes in. For some reason I thought you could only donate untreated hair so I figured this is the time to donate, ya know before the coloring starts, but I was wrong. They take just about every kind! That was nice to find out ;)

Well, anyway, with my business I get a lot of customers wanting hats as gifts for those who have lost their hair ie cancer, disease, etc. And I always feel so blessed to be able to help in some small way, but I wanted to do more. And Locks of Love was the perfect answer. So I placed it on my bucket list and started to let my hair grow. And beleive me it was way to long for me...I was going crazy! I don't know how people do it. My last straw was when the wind was blowing like crazy and I went to get in the car and after I shut the door found it was caught in the door...ouch! I am happy to say that I was able to check something off of my Bucket list ;)

So here is the before...

And here's the after...

I must say I love it!! It is so easy and so much faster to do. I have the thickest hair on the planet and it would take forever to blowdry now it's all of 5 minutes and I am in Heaven!! Who knew ;)
