Anonymous asked: You shouldn't donate your hair to locks of love, they are a scam, and throw away or sell the majority of the hair they receive. Locks of love is a corrupt "charity" which operates just like a normal wig company, charging extortionate prices to kids with cancer, while reducing their costs by convincing people to donate hair to them. You should look into pantene beautiful lengths or wigs for kids, not locks of love!
Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to try and invalidate another person’s very well-intended and very difficult decision. I bet it feels great to tell another person (that you absolutely do NOT know) that the choice she made today to remove, what is in her opinion, her best (and only pleasing) physical attribute for the sake of another person’s self-confidence was completely pointless and probably even involved in scandal.
What kind of pleasure do you get out of informing me that this choice, which is very much permanent and took me THREE FUCKING YEARS to finally fulfill, will come to no fruition? Do you just scroll through the Locks of Love tag and send anon hate to girls who have bravely cut off and donated what, for them, might be the only part of their body that makes them feel pretty?
The news about Locks of Love only broke about a week ago, and I really wasn’t aware of it until now. It’s not like I sat in that chair and said, “Yep, go ahead and hack off ten inches of my hair that I’ve spent years growing and planning to donate just so I can NOT send it to children who need it.”
News Flash: I didn’t fucking know. It’s over, and there is absolutely ZERO merit in your traipsing around and deflating people’s self-confidence about an action they can’t undo.
I don’t have a time machine. I won’t be “looking to” those other organizations for quite some time.
In short: Go away. I really hope that actively making people feel bad about their decisions is a one-time thing for you. I cannot possibly imagine how this makes you feel good.
