In preparation for the hot and sticky weather in India, I've chopped off a more than a foot of my hair. For those of you who have known me for less than 3 years, you're probably only familiar with me with long locks. For those of you who have known me for longer, you know this happens more or less every two years, though it's taken me a bit longer this time!
I will be donating my creepy but beloved braid to Locks of Love, an American based charity that makes wigs for disadvantaged children who suffer from medical hair loss such as chemotherapy or alopecia. This will be my fourth time donating to the charity, which fills me with pride. :)
So far, I am loving the short hair! I can feel a nice breeze on the back of my neck, I use much less shampoo and conditioner, plus it takes me 3 minutes to wash my hair instead of 15. Environmentally friendly AND efficient, all for charity and adventure. What's not to love?
