I Don’t Want To Cut My Hair

Here at The Longhairs we publish content about growing our hair to donate and charity hair-cutting events and world records and everything you might conceive about cutting and donating hair. But what if you’re saying to yourself, ‘I don’t want to cut my hair?’

What if you just want to grow your hair…to have long hair? We’ve seen a handful of questions and comments like this, and it’s an important discussion.

The short answer is, if you don’t want to cut your hair you definitely shouldn’t. I didn’t want to cut my hair, that’s how this started.

We do it because we agreed as business partners from the beginning our company should and would give back. We’re also uniquely positioned—both genetically, being so fortunate as to grow long hair—and professionally, being square in the middle of the hair business.

Having an engaged and loyal community gives us a chance to amplify awareness of things like alopecia and hair loss. We choose this cause and our charity partners at Children With Hair Loss because it’s a perfect fit for The Longhairs. It’s all in line with our core values.

In short, we do it because we can and we should and this is our best opportunity to give back and make an impact.

Also consider there are lots and lots of guys who want to grow long hair (openly or in secret). But outside forces like work, family and friends telling you to cut it are often too great to overcome.

If guys in this situation can use the opportunity to grow long hair for a greater purpose, to help others, then everyone wins right?? Whether they use the Dear Boss letter or a similar argument to persuade family and friends, we offer guys a reason to grow long hair. And some guys need that.

Back to your situation. There are a lot of reasons you shouldn’t cut your hair, but we don’t have to list them here…they’re your reasons and it’s your hair! For locks’ sake keep letting it ride man!

With that said we do believe intrinsically it’s important for everyone to give back in some way. If you prefer to keep the flow flowing there are infinite ways to give back.

If it were at The Great Cut, and we do still hope you’ll join us there, you could volunteer, or host a booth, or donate $10, or shoot just buy a ticket and show up! There will be no shame or peer pressure to cut your hair. We’ll just be there, partying.

But it doesn’t have to be The Great Cut and it doesn’t even have to be about hair. There are endless causes and ways to help and truthfully many far more urgent problems in the world than hair loss.

So if you’re leaning firmly, ‘I’m not gonna cut my hair,’ we’re with ya and we’ve got your back. Think of another way to give back, that brings you joy. However you choose to help, do it cheerfully and with a spirit of gratitude…and keep lettin it ride.
