LOCKS OF LOVE
 
Mission Statement

 
“Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.”
 

         Women of all ages should have the opportunity  to feel attractive and witness positive glances from onlookers.
 
Sadly, it is imperative to regain courage when we are faced with illness, and love those that depend on us to facilitate in the fight of Cancer.
 
In this world a little girl with hair loss will observe the glances and stares at people of all ages, but even without that hair she is still beautiful.
 
Can you envision one day having  long flowing pony tails and the prettiest dresses, and happiness until you visit the hospital?
 
Some little girls decide to wear headbands, but other women and little girls yearn to look as similar to themselves before their body chemistry changed and the hair loss results are usually observed through the deficiency of hair growth and tone of the skin.

 
If you can’t grow it, the world has given us so many options for  hair growth, but with the souls of  generous people, those layers of hair swept up on the salon floor, can go to a cause instead of being swept up and thrown away in a trash bin. Those locks bring smiles to tear-stained faces that are fighting a battle we can’t comprehend but sadly witness.

 
The locks that are donated to the cause bring happiness in a little girl’s life and are helpful to her well being and self-love. Thankfully Locks Of Love gives the little courageous princess a chance to have her crown back.

I’m different ***messymandella***bad sistas on deck


Your fashion must reflect your personality. The fashion and beauty world is yours to explore, if you are brave! Damn, what haters say. You must be different; or YOU will be the ordinary woman too afraid to take risk and stand out in this world and live by your own terms!

WE ARE SISTAS! ***messymandella***

          Believe or not, some women STILL have segregated friendships. Yes, every woman is of the exact background and lineage sitting in your living room or riding in your car. How is evolution even fathomable if we  segregate ourselves and don’t realize that when all women were fighting for women’s rights everyone locked arms, and demanded equal treatment. Every color stood tall together to initiate diversity in our world.

       Karina Moreira, a 15-year-old patient at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, provides suggestions on how Cancer patients can use head scarves and headbands to style themselves  and still  be alluring, even after hair loss from cancer treatment. View more videos at dana-farber.org or Karina’s blog: chicbykarina.com. She is a strong-willed individual that is teaching us adults  a lesson.

          Karina did not make a  head wrap video for all Irish women or all  Scottish women. The next time you  have a dinner party or any gathering extend invitations to all of your sista’s, not just the sista’s that have the exact color of skin as you do. Segregation is over, Master said, we can all integrate, so try it!

          I admire Karina, and it was a tear-jerker watching this video, because we are aware  she is ill and battling Cancer, but reaching out to help others at the age of  15 years old. This little woman is courageous and unselfish. She is supporting all the  women who have lost their  hair and maybe their self-esteem that have lost their hair to Cancer. Some of the women in this photo gallery have Cancer,but  you can’t tell who, can you? When you are attractive and strong-willed you will locate and thrive on that  inner strength  to breathe and fight until you can’t anymore.

Hair doesn’t make you beautiful, look at Karina.

She is adorable and a fighter,  and when it comes to Cancer, all Sista’s are fighting this fight.
