A little boy who has never had his hair cut is getting his two foot long locks chopped off - to make a wig for children with cancer.

Elijah Edney, three, is donating his long golden mane to charity and hopes to raise enough money to pay for the wig to be made.

His mother Amber Edney, 27, says she let Elijah grow his hair how he liked, but now people are starting to mistake him for a girl because of his tresses.

What's his mother thinking of letting it get that long in the first place?

Oh my gosh! A boy with long hair? What was the mother thinking!?! :o

Mrs Edney, a dinner lady, said: 'Elijah has always had beautiful hair, so I let him grow it like he wanted. It's like silk.

I was under the impression that at a certain age it is quite difficult to distinguish a girl form a boy based on mere looks.
Even if the boy had short hair he'd still have the supposed 'girlish' looks.

But as I look at the boy many of his features, at least for now, has a rather 'girlish' look so even if you try to block out the hair he still will look like a girl.
At least his hair isn't wavy or thick otherwise it would be a really pain.
Personally I do not have an issue with boys having long hair..it is society that makes it practically a crime to have long hair.

The kid is only three and has no conception of cancer; this is his mother's doing.

I suspect he is not gonna like the process, either.

I suspect he'll enjoy not being called Goldilocks any longer.

He does have nice hair but you would think his mother would know that he'd be mistaken for a girl because of it. He's only three, it sounds like growing it that length was more her doing than his, she liked it too much herself to suggest he should have it cut. At least now he is getting it cut his hair is going to a good cause.

I used to have long hair and when I was a kid my mum would comb it regularly with a nit comb. She was terrified of finding some but luckily never did. We had a nit nurse in school too and she'd go rummaging through our scalp every so often.

With some exceptions at different times in different places during history, long, or longish hair has been normal. Even the English puritans had long flowing locks. I dream of the sidelock coming back into fashion, but just a dream..... except for some Cossacks still....

"Nit nurse" - now that's a weird job title. :hmm:
