Jo, my nurse Heide's hairdresser friend, who cut my hair, said that even some hair that is donated is not usable because of the color or texture of the hair, so to not feel too bad.
Did you know it takes about eight donations of hair to make one wig!? I had no idea! So if my hair was two or three different shades it would be hard to blend with other donated hair to make a natural looking wig for someone. makes sense. She cut it shorter in the back and longer in the front (thanks to suggestion from my aunt june who is an awesome hairdresser too!). It's still layered so I can still pouf it on top! give me that bouffant! Or as Sofia tells me, "the Marge Simpson" look hahaha.
My hair was in desperate need of cutting. It felt so heavy with it being so long.
Here are before pictures and after pics that I took that day as well as a couple days later after I had washed and blowed dried it, then the next day was curled so you can see how it looks.
|look at that wild mane!|
I feel much better and figure in about 3 weeks to a month, it'll be the perfect length and just how i like it!
I am a bit closer to being ready for the holidays!
