Abuela de Miami Donates Hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Cause on National Donate Your Hair Day, November 22, 2014

Abuela de Miami had the awesome privilege of being able to donate 8 inches of her hair on National Donate Your Hair Day, Saturday, November 22, 2014 through the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.  Abuela de Miami heard about this special event on a Twitter Party hosted by Latina Mom Bloggers with telenovela star Maite Perroni and celebrity hairstylist Gabriel Samra.   Since Pantene started the Beautiful Lengths program in 2006 more than 600,000 ponytails have been donated and over 34,000 wigs have been created for women with cancer.

The event in Miami was held at Gabriel Samra Hair Salon where more than 17 women, children and men added to the 4,800,000 inches of hair donated since 2006 to this worthy cause.  The whole process was pleasant, convenient and the Pantene reps and the staff at the salon made us feel like celebrities!  My hair had to be clean, dry, without any hair products or dyes, and no more than 5% gray hair.  Gabriel made two ponytails out of my hair and then snip, snip and it was done!

My hair grows quickly so I look forward to being able to donate again next year!  In the meantime I’m rocking this very cool, unstructured bob by Gabriel Samra that really frames my face very nicely and is easy to style.  Thank you Pantene Beautiful Lengths and Gabriel Samra for all you do!
