Children With Hair Loss.

Hi, over a year ago or longer, I decided to grow a pony tail. Approaching 70 years old with a natural reddish brown hair, I thought I would do this before my hair fell out or turned grey, like the rest of my family. I know some times people gave me a weird look, but with long hair or short hair, I'm still the same person. After my hair started getting pretty long, I did some searches, and decided to grow my pony tail long enough to donate for a good cause. My plan was to have it cut off on my 70th birthday. I got antsy and had my wife cut it off about one week early. I donated it to Children With Hair Loss along with along with some money to help. I hope my donation helps someone in need.

Our daughter, at age 14, having grown her hair since birth, had it cut to donate for a similar purpose.

Nice thing for you to do!

According to my wife who is able to see the back and top of my head more easily than can I, this is a donation that I am unable to make.

That is way cool and also I couldn't do it. I don't have what it takes.

I started my ponytail three years ago for the same reason. I was surprised when it measured out to 16 inches! I hope you don't have the same outcome I did. Within months the grey sprouted and is now taking over.

Something here made me remember the movie Blue Sunshine.
The higher your expectations the fewer your options.
