Wordless Wednesday - Beautiful Lengths

Chop 1 - June 28th - 1 week after surgery - easier to care for hair and in preparation for Chemo

First time I've had short hair in over 18yrs
Playing with wigs at Look Good Feel Good ...just for fun.

Now 2.5 months after the big shave , though I am on a different weekly chemo , the good news is my hair is slowly starting to re-grow - only 0.5 mm - still barely bald.
When they tell you will lose all your hair - it can leave you speechless and shattered.

Today I wanted to spread the word - even though it is Wordless Wednesday about Beautiful lengths.

Beautiful Lengths is a program by Pantene in partnership with charity Look Good…Feel Better, designed to encourage women to cut, grow and donate 20cm of their hair to create real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair to cancer treatment, and we’re calling on Australian’s to get involved and make the kindest cut of all.

Monday 12th November will mark the launch of the inaugural Beautiful Lengths National Donate Your Hair Week in Australia kicking off with a hair donation event at Martin Place in Sydney CBD with Pantene ambassadors leading hairstylist, Barney Martin, and beauty expert, Zoe Foster.

The first 100 women to donate their ponytails will receive a free haircut from THE Barney Martin and his team of top hairstylists. A gift bag full of products will be presented to every woman who donates their ponytail as well.

In order to participate in the National Donate Your Hair Week event, hair donors must be able to travel to Martin Place for 8am on 12th November and have at least 20cm of hair to donate.

Hair must also be less than 5% grey, and free from chemical treatments, hair extensions and permanent dye. A detailed list of donation requirements can be found on Beautiful Lengths website
I'm donating my 4 ponytails !
I couldn't find a suitable wig for me so I opted for the nude nutt (only at home), beanies and scarves. I hope someone else will benefit from my hair donation.

Please visit other W W' ers and especially if you could visit the other 4 blogs that happen to be linking up in the same row as you ?

PS - Anyone who wishes to donate their hair but cannot get to Sydney for the event on 12th November can find out how to hold their own donation party by downloading a party host pack from the Beautiful Lengths website.
