Hi! It’s been a while!
Few weeks ago, I decided to go back to blogging, but my lazy ass won’t let me post something here LOL. Luckily, something monumental happened to me this past week, and I couldn’t help but share my story again.
Three years ago, I donated my hair through Papelmeroti. Click the blog post HERE.
It really brought joy to my heart even though I wasn’t sure if my hair was put to use, but nonetheless, the thought of giving it to those who are in need really gave me a sense of purpose. My best friend’s mom died last year because of Lymphoma. Now, I have a close friend who’s battling with breast cancer, and she’s only 28 years old!Really, Big C sucks.
So for me, donating my hair is the least I can do for them.
Last September 3, I did it again.
It took me three years to grow back my hair this long:
After my friend’s wedding last June (I was one of the bridesmaids), I started planning on my haircut and look for a possible donor, since Papemelroti announced that they won’t be receiving hair anymore.
I stumbled upon my hs classmate’s IG story and saw that she donated her hair. She then recommended me to visit Heads Salon by Volumed. Aside from the usual salon services, they’ve partnered with Hair for Hope, an organization who takes care of hair being donated, especially through Heads.
I had my appointment done through their website. Since it was a day off for me last Sept 3, i took this opportunity to have my hair cut from there. I want to experience it first hand hihi 😅
My actual schedule was at 12NN, and I arrived at Heads Salon around 11:30 AM-ish, but their friendly staff accommodated me immediately since there were no customers at that time. I started earlier than expected. They even offered me to have tea or coffee. Such a nice gesture from them.
I requested them to cut my hair long enough to pass the required length, and leave just enough hair…not too short for my liking, unlike from my previous haircut.
“Are you ready?” , said by the stylist.
Snip. Snap. And here you go:
I grabbed it and I was kinda sad because it’s not that thick compared from the first harvest. But then again, at least, I did it.
After my haircut, a lady named Pam approached me and interviewed me a little bit about my “Confidence Story” and took photos of me. I was surprised and felt a lil bit shy haha.
Hair for Hope costs Php 400 per session. May be pricey, yes. But it was all worth it.
Again, I am not sure if my hair did passed for the donation (because hormonal imbalance), but still gonna share this blog to spread awareness. If you know someone who can donate their hair, I am encouraging them to do so. A little help goes a long way. 😌
Thank you Heads Salon and Hair for Hope for the opportunity to help. Shoutout also to Dianne who recommended Heads to me 🙂
