A few weeks ago I did a post on natural hair and how I felt like it was over-rated. Well as of today it’s been a week since I decided to do the “BIG CHOP.”
When I initially decided to go natural, I was going to just be patient and grow my perm out with the length that it was, but as time went on my hair became unmanageable to me, so I hade to figure something out if I was not going back to relaxers, so that when I made an appointment with Dana @ hair rox here in Atlanta to cut my hair.
I decided that once it was cut I would try to attempt the curly hair, so it can grow big and I would continue it that way. Below, you will see the different stages of my hair leading up to the BIG CHOP.
|December 2011-just had the front cut|
|The Big Chop March 2012 3 1/2 inches gone. There is a lil shrinkage due to my gel, but overall I'm loving my hair and the new color|
Oh, by the way…my hair has not been cut this short since 1989. So this was kind of semi-drastic for me
What do you think of my change? Would you ever consider cutting your hair to start over?
