Anyone letting their hair grow out and donating to charity after COVID ends? I haven’t gotten a haircut since before the pandemic and don’t feel safe to get one until it is over. For people who have donated hair before any organizations you would recommend?

Locks for love

I second locks of love. I used them in middle school. There is a rumor going around saying LOL charges recipients for wigs. It is not accurate. My sister donated to wigs for kids after believing in that rumor. Both are worthy causes. Bless you for thinking of others 😀

I've donated. They only take natural, uncolored hair for donations. The salon that I go to donates to wigs for kids.

I’ve donated my colored hair before. Every org is different. Most don’t take bleached hair.

Locks of love My hair grows very fast and you only need 7 inches to donate. Very easy process. Be sure to tell whoever is cutting your hair that you are donating so they can save the large piece of cut hair before doing any styling / layering

That’s a good idea. I’ve been cutting my own hair and I look crazy.

I did Pantene! They need at least 8 inches of hair and they provide the wigs to cancer patients free of charge

I checked their website, it says they accept hair that has been colored with vegetable dye, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. I haven’t colored my hair so I’m not exactly sure what these mean but I hope this helps!

I’m in the same boat and will donate to children with hair loss, they accept dyed hair, grey hair...

Also I don’t color my hair or use any products. Basically wash, condition, and blow dry.

That’s nice! I understand that places that accept hair donations have very specific standards, not everyone qualifies. No one wants my fine and thin processed colored hair.

I’ve donated my hair twice. Plan to do it again this year to Pantenes charity

Wigs for Kids! I donated about five years ago and plan to donate to them again this year

Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho

I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing. I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does. Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...

What are consulting firms' relationships with the continent like right now. In the past, I've worked for a few firms which had London as a hub servicing continental clients and I'm curious about how Brexit and/or Covid-19 are affecting that. Are other European countries ramping up their local teams, or are they working on the assumption that nothing changes and the UK will continue to augment their numbers on assignments?
