Locks of Love!!!

Aloha Everyone!
Hope your weekend is going well.
I had a great day today, as I cut my hair. Short.
It's not just a trim, but I had cut my long hair that was down below my waist, as you can see from this Before photo!
I planned this cut mainly because I needed to cut my hair, but because I wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love! I learned about them one day earlier this year when there was a campaign for getting your hair cut for Locks of Love for free by the local hair dressers here in Hilo. Ever since then, I had my mind set on getting my very long hair donated it for a good cause (or otherwise wasted pile of hair that gets swept off the floor in a hair salon!)
And today was that day!






アローハ!
週末いかがお過ごしですか?
今日、と~っても長かった髪の毛をカットしてきました!
かなりすっきり・・・今までかなりのロングヘアだったので見た目、「な~んちゃってフラ・ダンサー」、だったのですが、これで影も形もなく「普通の人」?!
実はショーっトカットにしたのには「動機」があったのです。アメリカには「ロックス・オブ・ラブ」、という非営利団体があり、病気などで髪の毛を失った恵まれない18歳以下の子供達にヘアー・ピース若しくは鬘を提供する活動を行っています。そこに10インチ(約26センチ)以上の長さの髪の毛を寄付することによって、その団体の活動を支えることができるのです。この活動のことを知って以来、次に髪の毛を切るときは絶対にこの団体へ寄付したい、と思っていました。
そしてついに今日その日が訪れたわけです♪



Here is Locks of Love's Mission Statement:
"Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics.
Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need. "
And here is my ponytail... It was at least 21 inches from top to end!
最低53センチはあった私の髪の毛がこちらです!

Wow! It's SO much lighter without all that hair behind you. And with the hot weather still continuing, I know I am going to be very happy with my new hair length!
Sharon Shroeder at Regis Hair Salon @ Prince Kuhio Plaza was very helpful in getting my new hair style going. So a big mahalo to Sharon!


髪の毛が短くなってすっきり!とにかく頭が軽い(ハハハ)のがなんといっても一番の差です。嬉しい!
プリンス・クヒオ・プラザ内のレジス・ヘア・サロンのマネージャーのシャーロンさんがとても上手くヘアースタイルのアドバイスをしてくれました。まだまだ暑い日が続くヒロなので、手入れも簡単になり大正解!と言った感じです♪




Well, this was an eyewitness news reported by your local Locks of Love hair donor, Reiko!
In the meantime,
Aloha & Peace & Love
それでは今日はヘアーカット、実況報告でした~!
Aloha & Peace & Love,
玲子
