Heat and Hair: Locks of Love

After a relatively quiet and pleasant last several months, summer has finally decided to shower us with its famous devilish, record-breaking heat.

Los Angeles recorded the highest temperature, not just this season or this year but like, EVER, this Tuesday, with neighborhoods experiencing an upward of 113 degrees (even the beach communities that don’t typically reach the century mark)! I’m used to the heat for living in the Valley for as long as I can remember, but this one was something else. It was sticky and uncomfortable, and even a fan working for 24 hours straight didn’t make a dent in the situation.

The following day was pretty strange too. After another very hot and humid afternoon, Mother Nature decided to flash us with a smile, in a way of double rainbows (yes, there were two rainbows in the sky!) immediately followed by a rhythmical thunderstorm and playful rainfall from a hot pink sky. It was beautiful, spooky, and surreal, all at the same time.

On a random note, I was so glad that I had gotten a haircut a few weeks ago, chopping off 10 inches of my lock. I don’t think I would have been able to survive the last two days had I still had the long, dark hair wrapped around my sweaty neck!

The best part of it all is that I donated the lock to my favorite charity, Locks of Love, where my hair will be used to make wigs for kids who are unable to grow their own due to illness. It makes me feel so blessed that I was able to make even a tiny difference in some child’s life. 🙂

  1. Thanks, Saori! I love my hair short much better. It’s so much easier to manage, especially when during the run. And I can save so much on shampoo and conditioner! LOL. Thanks for the kind words. I’m so glad that there’s a charity like this that exists.
