Last October, I'd had enough of the constant upkeep. And decided I'd cut it and give it to Locks of Love. But it has to be a minimum of 10 inches long. To my shoulders, it wasn't. So I decided to let it grow out, no trimming, until summer started.
For 7 months, I let it grow.
This actually came in handy this last semester for my business of art class and working Troy Fest. Then I could model hair sticks (:
A week after that was over, I braided my hair and went in for a haircut. She cut it to shoulder length (the top of the braid) before giving me my real hair cut.

By last Christmas, my hair was longer than it had been since I was 14. And each day, it just got longer.
Wanted to make sure my braid reached required length:
Just over 11 inches, clean, all natural, and thick. I hope it does some child good.
All ready for shipping.
Mailed it off this morning.
If you would to do the same to help create a wig for a child in need,
Here are the requirements:
Minimum of 10 inches long.
Clean and dry.
Cannot be bleached.
Must be bound-- either as a braid or pony tail. No loose hair.
Then package it up and mail it to:
Locks of Love
234 Southern Blvd.
West Palm Beach, FL 33405-2701
