Cimmy and Locks of Love

4 Comments

Cimmorene has been growing out her hair very long, considering donating some of the length to Locks of Love.

Today she mentioned my mother (blunt and a bit obtuse as usual) saying that she should have her hair cut to the length it was in our "engagement picture":

but we were both much thinner then, which is about as delicate as I can put it.

I'm sure she could use a lot of support right now.

  1. You're both gorgeous! And Cimmy, your hair is exquisite – lovely color and shiny — any length will be lovely!I know a hair stylist who styles wigs and hairpieces for cancer patients and who has participated in Locks of Love events– she says that it's one of the most wonderful things a person can do; it's truly a gift of love.*waves*

  2. You both look SO cute in that picture! And happiness and contentment shine far more than beauty- I'm sure she will look wonderful no matter what she does.

  3. Thank you so much, both of you.
    I was mainly thinking of cutting it because it is so HOT! (refraining from using a choice expletive or two in that last sentence) I can't even go to church without bringing my fan, which my baby son never fails to grab, along with my hair and my glasses. Baby grabbiness is another reason that I was considering cutting it.
    However, I do like having it long. It's been 33 years since it was this long. (I chopped my bangs when I was six and, as punishment, my mom took me to a beauty salon where they removed a good deal of the rest of it). Since then, whenever I would try to grow it out long, my impatience would supercede my desire for length and I would have it shortened again. Now it's long enough that I can put it into nice long braid, which I also occasionally have trouble with because my hair keeps coming out of it strand by strand (more expletives withheld here).
    Anyway, then I had my kids and the wonderful hormones did really nice things for my hair. It's at about the middle of my back right now. I may try to grow it to my waist before I think of donating it to Locks of Love. That would be a nice length, right? TTFN

  4. I may have hit a snag anyway. My hair has been long for quite a while and, of all people, my daughter is the one least likely to adapt to change quickly. I asked her what she would say if I cut my hair to donate to locks of love and she said I could do that if that's what I wanted to do, but she likes it long. I should clarify. Now that it's long, it's really fun for her to comb and brush and mess with it and, since it's a bear to detangle at this length, I often let her brush it for me. I know I shouldn't make a hair decision based on the whims of my six-year-old daughter, but it would be nice for her to approve the change.
