WHAT AN HONOR... so i guess this was my attempt at asking you to take a look at your own situation. if you are in a place of absolutely loving your lengthy dreds, then GO YOU AND KEEP ON GROWIN' IT OUT! on the other hand, if you are in the position to cut off 8 inches of your hair, then i strongly urge you to do it. there are so many human beings out there who would LOVE the opportunity to possess long hair, but simply cannot because of their current situation.... let's share! ...and remember what regina said, HAIR GROWS BACK.... :) you can donate your locks to http://www.childrenwithhairloss.us and use hashtags (is that the correct use of that word?!) #hairforhazel and #itgrowsback to help spread the word!"
