Thursday Thoughts - On Hair Extensions and Buying Beauty

Strip and Sell Rapunzel

Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
Give me your hair!
Mine's so lifeless and dull -
You will look fine bare.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
What can you do?
Few things we want to cull
Grow on top of you.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
It will grow back.
Sans vanity, the skull
Is a shining shack!

Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
This costs a lot.
Your suff'ring I can't mull
While my joy is bought.

This poem is to help all remember where hair extensions come from
and the message one sends the world every time they buy one.

  2. Rachel, love it! Especially when I just went to have my sister's hair cut to donate to 'Locks of Love'. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thank you, Mary! I love 'Locks of Love'. I donated to them once, but usually I don't have quite enough hair for their requirements. I'm glad other charities have stepped in to take the shorter pony tails though. I think I will be donating another sometime in the next few months. :o)

    1. Not everyone has to be a donor and some are definitely deserving of donated locks. It is the ones who buy the REAL hair extensions for fun who should think twice. :)

  4. sorry, why is it in poor taste? Are people being forced to have their hair cut?

    1. In the most extreme cases, yes. There were some Russian prisoners... and some women are forced by their husbands...

  5. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
