Thinking of Pulling a Britney? Donate your hair!

02/20/2007 at 03:21 PM ET

Are you looking to embrace your inner Britney Spears — and shave your head? Instead of selling your hair (the salon where Britney went razor-happy is auctioning off her tresses), what about donating your ‘do? Britney’s ex Kevin Federline reportedly donated his hair to Locks of Love when he went from a shoulder-length coif to a buzz cut. That charity provides free hairpieces and wigs to children who have lost their hair due to illness. It’s pretty easy to do — take it from someone who knows. Three weeks ago, I made my own donation. I just filled out a form online and mailed in my cut-off hair (which took only a year and a half to grow — the charity needs a minimum of 10 inches). Best of all, you don’t need to go for a full-on chrome dome like Britney; a nice short bob will do. — Cara Shultz

I’m sick and tired of reading about Britney Spear’s antics. She’s a train wreck waiting to happen and I can see her ending up like Anne Nicole Smith or at least Courtney Love. If she put half as much energy into her children rather than doing the stupid things that make the headlines, she and her children would be much better off. All I can say is that I hope that the person she is paying to look after her children is more of a mother than she is. Those poor kids!!! I’m thinking that even Kevin Federline is looking more like the responsible one and that is really scary!!

Britney is like demented or something! You don’t go out and shave your own head! Well it could be fun to shave some one else’s head… but that is not the point!

the most STUPID donation (¿?) EVER.
she’s awfully rich, instead of buying a $10 000 000 diamond neckless to her rat dog she could have gave that in donation. Am i right?
I’m from a 3rd world country… hair donation sounds ridiculous.

well, i needed to say that. Kisses 4 U all! =)

So, you wanna pull a Britney? Cut your hair off, shave your head, what ever…by the way, Britney Buzzed IT! NOT SHAVED! Big difference..SO, chop it off and sell it on http://www.thehairtrader.com Yes, sell it, then you can do whatever you want to do with the money you raise! Actually donate it to where you know you’ll be making a difference… wanna find out? Check out give.org on the organizations you think you’re making a difference..you’ll be shocked.. So give the money directly to your cause…

By the way, Britney didn’t cut her hair off and donate it.. She did nothing for humanity…she did it for her own publicity..Plus, her hair was prob in such poor shape from the years and years of extensions and colors. No one would take her hair or give her money for only 4 INCHES! You could sell your hair on TheHairTrader.com and then give money to an organization of your choice!!!
