Woman Sells Hair for $1075.00!

Many have heard "The Gift of the Magi" a short story written by O. Henry. It's about a younge couple. Della (the wife) sells her beautiful hair to buy a Christmas gift for Jim (her husband), while he secretly sells his most prized possession to buy her hair combs. There's a hilarious episode of the King of Queens with a similar plot. He convinces his wife to sell her hair to pay for a cruise and then he thinks she looks like a guy with the short hair. (Isn't that horrible?!) The episode was called Sold-y Locks. I've heard of people selling their hair, but never knew anyone that actually did it or the procedure. Who knew you could really sell your hair for a profit of $1075.00!

Thanks to an article by Xin Lu on How to Sell Your Hair for Cash, I'm informed as to the process of selling one's hair. You can read the article for all the details. The The Hair Trader is just one of the sites she recommends.

The reason I wrote about this is that I always bring you any information I find about making money online, no matter what it is. Hey, it's legal and you could make a nice chunk of change for hair that would end up in the garbage anyway. Here's a question for you. Should I cut my hair?. My hair is longer than the woman in the picture. My hair grows very quickly and I've never hesitated cutting it-especially when I'm tired of the upkeep. Who couldn't use the money? Even if I got half of what she got, it's better than nothing. Hmm, I'm going to give it further consideration. I'll let you know what I decide. Some things to think about...if I get at least $1000.00, it accelerates my car laon PAYOFF. I'll only owe a little over $1000.00. That will lower my car insurance payment (for a $1000.00 + yearly savings) and eliminate my car payment (213.09) before the end of 2008. That frees up a nice amount of cash. It looks more and more tempting when I look at the numbers. I'd like to know what you think. Leave your comments, pros and cons and whatever else you want to add.

I also wanted to mention Locks of Love. It is an excellent charity that makes wigs for children that have lost their hair due to diseases. If you have long hair and you're cutting it anyway, you might as well donate it for a good cause. I know some people may not need the money. (I'm in a different situation).

Unbelievable, but true. You can make money online by selling your hair... cheap flights from the uk to the whole world

I saw that same article on wisebread. I have always wondered who I could sell my hair to. Now I know how to do it. I've donated my hair to Locks of Love before. Now I plan on growing my hair out to sell it and donate some of the money I make from it to Locks of Love.

One of my sons sold his hair to help his autistic brother getting a new computer.
he managed to get about 80 dollars

Locks of Love is a great organization. I'd encourage anyone who doesn't need the money desperately to consider donating their hair to them. It'll go to a great cause.

Sounds a little bit desperate to sell your hair for money.
