Just after Angela donated her hair to Locks of Love, Spanky decided to do the same. While digging around for links for the blog post, Pimp My Hair, regarding Angela’s donation, I found some controversy surrounding that organization. A lot of the hair gets thrown away and some of it is sold to cover operating costs.
I mean, where did this chick’s new hair come from?
So I told Spanky it was a nice thing to do, but there might be a chance her hair would never make it into a wig for a child with alopecia (balding) but on Britney Spears’ head.
She said she was going to do it just in case, and grew out her already long hair for another year.
Apparently this is a big thing amongst high school girls, to grow their hair out for Locks of Love. A lot of them assume it is to make a wig for cancer patients. It is not, and their website clearly states that.
While in the salon a few months ago, I mentioned to the stylist why she hadn’t seen Spanky in such a long time. She told me the salon did the cutting and took care of the shipping to Locks. They also gave a 50% discount on the cut.
So, Wednesday was the day.
Her hair was to her hips.
Then while she was waiting for the stylist to finish with my hair, I caught her in a moment of boredom, blowing on her side bangs, watching them go up in the air then watching them land back into her face.
Today she says she has absolutely no regrets.
I wonder if she’ll be thinking what I’m thinking when we see a blonde celeb in the tabloids a few months from now?
