Re: Cutting your DD hair from long to short???

We haven't done any drastic cuts with DD yet though sometimes I think about it, especially when she whines about having to get it brush because it has knots. She wants it down to her butt though.

Research Locks of Love before you donate. It's not all its cracked up to be and you don't want to get her hair cut just for that and have it not donated or, even worse, actually thrown out. Just some food for thought there.

Re: Cutting your DD hair from long to short???

I voted 4yrs. She may have been 5yrs.

We did it for several reasons. Mainly it got to be too much with the tangles, screaming, not letting me fix it, etc.

After we cut it into a bob it looked so much healthier and super cute! We still had issues with her during grooming, so we gave her a time frame (a month) to get it under control (not screaming everytime I brushed her hair, let me fix it, etc)and if she didn't it was going to be cut again even shorter. We had to go shorter. She's had the same short hair cut now for 2-3yrs.

I feel fairly sure that if we hadn't gone shorter when we did her hair wouldn't have gotten as thick as it has and turned slightly curly/wavy because her hair was stick straight before. Its really beautiful.

Here is a link that has several pictures that shows off her hair and waves..

Re: Cutting your DD hair from long to short???

My DD is almost 8 and we have JUST cut her hair other than Trimming it WAS to her Waist now its just below shoulders with a Tapered bang that frames the face.
I CRIED when we did it and the only reason I did was because she BEGGED me and said she wanted hair like all the other girls in her school hers was the Only one that was that long.
We also donated to Locks of Love

Re: Cutting your DD hair from long to short???

Well, after finding some pictures I cut her hair when she was 3.5yrs.

The month before she got her hair cut


The day she got her hair cut (notice how stick straight her hair is)



Now wavy

Re: Cutting your DD hair from long to short???

you missed the "other" option. we haven't cut dd's hair and I don't plan to, as a child my hair was past my bum and stayed that was until I went into 4th grade, my mom cried as the stylist cut my locks off. My hair grows fast and was down my back again the following summer. I had it long to short all through my growing up. i still do it now as an adult..lol
My dd lost all her hair when she got chemo, now that is is back and very long, Ii really don't want to ever cut it. If she wants it cut and wanted to donate to locks of love, i would be completely 100% on board with that. Locks of love is an awesome thing.

I'm dreading the day...
I don't plan to cut only trim unless at some point she wants to, so I would have picked "Other"

my daughter is only 2, but we plan on letting her decide when she wants to get it cut. I had long hair until I was 12.

DD cut her own hair at 2.5 which forced us to get a cute wedge. I have to say that we have had more compliments since than we ever had before!

We had to cut her hair when she was a bit over 2 because it was 1/2 down her back and she REFUSED to let us do anything with it and washing it was (and still is) a fight. Things have been much easier for her with it cut.
