It was absolutely liberating. I am so happy to be free of that weight. I was a tad worried but it was nothing and I think I kind of pull it off.
I did it for 3 reasons, first to honor my dad who passed away. Today was his birthday and we always talked about shaving our heads but never got the chance. The second reason is for a kid with cancer (who needs to feel beautiful) will get my locks and I am proud to help out with. And the third reason is for a little help with college tuition. I thought maybe people who what a courageous act this is might want to invest in helping me become a graphic designer so I can do ever more courageous things.
Honestly the biggest reason I did it is because I want to be free of flyaways if only for a minute. I can’t tell you how many times I slapped myself in the face because I thought a bug was on my face and it really was just a hair.

My Gofundme page for college tuition
At first I was planning on(june 23 2018) shaving my head comfort reasons but I found out I can donate my hair to locks of love. I decided to raise money for my college tuition that I just found out is 42,000.00 with all expenses included for an associates degree. In reality, that is really not too bad but for me that is not good lol it is like 3 times my yearly salary. So I am going to try to raise it all to donate my hair. I have never died my hair and I never use a curling iron or blow dryer. I meet all the requirements to donate it and I am so excited to have this opportunity to go back to school and make a kid happy.
