10 inches less

So here's the story for those who asked....


About two years ago I had heard of a friend who was just undergoing skin cancer treatment about the organisation "Locks of Love". This public non-profit organization provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

While my friend was lucky enough to have battled cancer and is fortunately at no financial disadvantage I decided to nevertheless eventually donate my hair. I was looking for a similar organization in Switzerland or Germany however apparently there is no official organisation or institution that would have a similar program in place.

So here we are, shipping 10 inches of all natural not colored hair off to Florida, where hopefully a child will get a new look and have some joy with a hairpiece.

The moment Denis, my hairdresser at Friendship in Basel, cut off the braid it did feel very weird. But quite egoistically I am enjoying my new look, not only with a three week trekking coming up where short hair is a lot easier to handle.

It takes a while to grow it that long, and you have to add another inch or so to leave the hairdresser some workspace too, but I might just as well do it again :-)
