    What if she gets cancer the second she shaves it off and now need someone else's hair for a wig?! THE RISK

    Really though, beautiful hair. I had no idea you could donate dyed hair though.

    You missed the part where I said "If you really want to go bald for personal reasons I guess it's okay". Never suggested her to throw it away.
    I'm just the kind of person who would help others only when it's about something I have extra, not about something that is very dear to myself.

    Anyway, good luck Gemma and I hope you wont miss it too much then.

    i did that a few years ago when i decided to ditch the long hair. Locks of Love (the most well known program for that in US) is awesome idea imo. anybody thinking of donating their hair just ask the people where you are getting your hair cut, most places know the program and are happy to participate. i didnt shave mine, it was long enough that they just took the pony tail and then cleaned up what i had left into a normal haircut

    Shamefully I laughed at the "risk" but thank you, yes you can donate it as long as it isn't grey, they can dye over the top of it anyway ^^

    Thank you ^^ I am sure I will miss it, but knowing that someone without hair will benefit from it means a lot to me.

    Cool Yea it is the Little Princess Trust here, for the major one anyway, I had the option of just cutting it short, but might as well give them the whole length rather than the minimum of 7″/17cm.

    I'm in the middle. This is me out at Wasteland Weekend a few weeks ago, had a blast out there.

    I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong but I don't know how to make the picture into a smaller thumbnail, any help doing that would be appreciated.

    Hope that doesn't sound rude as that isn't my intention



    Thank you
    we do all we do cause we need to do. Pagans too , or everyone else. it doesn't change u did a nice deed, but u did because u needed to do it. psychologically it's not possible for a person to do sth that s/he doesn't need to do...

    I guess you could look at it that way I wouldn't say "need" to do it though, want to do it, most definitely but not need.

    i would have just shaved it and given it all, but it was preparation for a first date. it was also summer and id had a lot of sun, so the pasty white dome would have looked crazy, lol. incidentally that date is my wife now

If you really want to go bald for personal reasons I guess it's okay, but doing it because someone else did or because the kids want it... You really shouldn't.
    Are you really trying to discourage someone from being charitable? Heck, the fact that it's so valuable to her is really commendable, since it makes it such a more significant sacrifice. A guy with 10 bucks donating 5 to charity has a more generous heart than a guy with a billion donating 500.

    Why would you tell someone to not give their hair up for someone who is unable to grow it, while she can regrow it? Good on her!

    The kids will get their wigs sooner or later, enough people who do it because they want shorter hair, but shaving your hair only because of this seems like some kind of torture... I've had really short hair when I was 11 or so and it was such a pain, I'm still having nightmares where I cut my hair and start to regret it and it's such a relief when I wake up... I don't understand anyone who would go through this willingly. And no I'm not a bad person or against charities, but the healthiest way to live is to put yourself just a bit above everyone else.
