Donating Hair to Children with Cancer- ButterfliesBBI

Alyssa is 9 1/2 years old and has always had long hair. Her hair is naturally curly, like mine, but she gets knots in her hair like I never did. I told her that we would wait until after her bug Nationals Gymnastics meet before we cut it.

This was her on Friday.

When I realized how much we would be cutting, I started looking to see if it could be donated. I knew there were places that accepted 10-12" with no problems, but that was going to be cutting it close, literally. I found a place that accepts 6-8" called Butterflies BBI. They give wigs to children who suffer from Cancer, Alopecia, and other conditions with hair loss. We liked that her hair would be going to help kids since she is a kid.

She washed her hair and came downstairs all excited to go. I separated the hair into two groups to ensure length as best as I could. 9 1/2 inches were cut off!

She's never had short hair in her life, except when she was a baby, so it feels different. She had her first gymnastics workout yesterday with the short hair and she said it felt weird. It's only hair, and it'll grow back!
