Can You Make It To “The World Series” As A Men’s Hair Donor?
By Christopher Bell
For the first time in seventy one years, the Chicago Cubs went to the World Series. As the holder of the record of the longest World Series drought, the Chicago Cubs and their fans have been through the ringer. For decades, the Chicago Cubs just couldn’t make it to the playoffs.
Some people blamed the billy goat. Others said the team was cursed. Well, the Chicago Cubs have turned things around this year and are poised to be World Series champions with one game left to play.
There may very well be more unicorns than men’s hair donors (currently around one percent of men are hair donors), but there are similarities between the Chicago Cubs and men’s hair donors.
Cubs Fans And Men’s Hair Donors Are Diehards
The team known as, “the lovable losers” has known more than its fair share of defeat. For men’s hair donors, all too often the pressure mounts to quit. Just as many Cubs fans over the years have been on the verge of disavowing their team after a crushing loss, men’s hair donors face many “losses” that make it hard to keep going.
Hair growing to awkward length, being called “miss” by the barista, getting their hair stuck in the car door, and all that added hair maintenance are just a few of the challenges that have men’s hair donors lamenting the “loss" of their short hair.
Men’s Hair Donors And Cubs Fans Are Both Proud Of Their “Team”
With The Chicago Cubs in the World Series, its a good time to be a Chicago Cubs fan. Even if they lose, Cubs fans are still proud of their team. The same is true for men’s hair donors, their long flowing locks are like a badge of honor.
When a friend or coworker chide, “Hey, your hair’s getting long when are you going to cut it?” men’s hair donors shrug it off because they know that their hair will go to a woman or child in need.
We will find out tonight if the Cubs win the World Series and end their long championship drought, and for men’s hair donors nearing the end of their hair donation journey, they will provide a woman or child in need of a wig the hair that they need. Even if the Cubs don’t win tonight, they have already won. And for men’s hair donors still on their journey, their “World Series” win will come on their donation day.
