I might try and keep the hair next time I go get a hair cut.

I'd love to get my hair cut short, but I'm nearing the donation length, so I'm thinking I can put up with it for a while so I can make another donation.

I have never gotten that much hair cut off, I only get about an inch off at a time.

I did it the same way, Princess Zelda - butt-length to bob, all donated to the organization. It was my first act of rebellion against my ex-husband who wanted me to have insanely long hair. He didn't speak to me for three days afterwards.

I was happier for the kids getting wigs from my hair - they had more need of it.

I color my hair thus I can't donate, it is a great cause though.

I've never been able to donate hair because I colour and bleach mine but yeah it is a great cause.

No, my hair's usually been too fried and processed to donate.

I donated my hair back when I was in high school. I'd like to do it again someday.

I would but I can never manage to grow my hair past my shoulders. It gets too hard to manage and I end up getting it cut off. I don't think they'd take a donation of an inch or so of hair

Sadly no it has to be 10'' I gave a foot of hair and it was driving me nuts

I woke up today a little worried becuase I had forgotten I had cut my Hair. It freaked me out a little but I am still happy about my hair cut.

I donated my hair when I was seven I believe.

Weird! My hair was colored and they accepted it ... I wonder what they really did with it, then? They're the ones who suggested it to me, so it wasn't like I forced them to take it ...

Too bad the entire staff has changed since I did it (eight years ago), otherwise I'd go back to the salon and ask them.

I dye mine and mine has been donated. I think that the problem with most dyed hair is that people over do it an fry their hair so it can't be used. My hair you can't tell has been dyed by the look and feel of it. I have donated once because the last time I got 10in cut off you could tell my hair had been bleached considering I had highlights

They changed the rules. You can now.

It was meaningful when I did it. A friend had cancer at the time and it helped me feel less powerless. I dont know if I would do it again. The last 2 months my hair drove me crazy. I had to sleep with it in a braid or I felt it was going to strangle me.

Ah, that explains it; thanks, camo. Mine was also "couldn't tell it was dyed" because I did it only three or four times a year while it was growing out and I never used product or heated appliances.

Twice but the last time was quite a while ago. Now I keep my hair short to mid-length so I don't expect to be able to make another donation anytime soon.

I've always wanted to do this. Its on my bucket list.

I would love to, but I color my hair and they won't take it. I also don't think I could get my hair long enough to donate without going crazy, my hair is a little past shoulder length now and it is driving me crazy, this is the longest it has been in years. My mom grew her hair out and donated it a few years ago, she was very happy she could do it. And to those of you who have donated, thank you so much. My little cousin was diagnosed with leukemia last year (she is in remission now) and the chemo made her lose her hair.

That used to happen to me back when I had my hair super-short!

I would love to but my hair is dyed black. It's dry, split, and needs a lot of tlc. I have hair all the way down to my butt too but my hair is dyed/damaged so I don't think they would accept that. I think I might want to go natural though. I'm kinda sick of thick tar like black hair dye. lol.

I have short hair and wouldn't work at all for me. But it is great that others do it and it makes me happy they do

I would donate, but they make it so difficult to find a place around here that participates. I do love the feeling of a good haircut though!
