Big Chop?

I wasn’t able to create the post I wanted to for tonight because it requires gathering a lot of pics, but perhaps tomorrow.

It’s hard trying to recap the last year of my journey, when there’s so much that’s happening now that I’d like to write about.

I think there’s a point where u feel so compelled to do the big chop (BC) just to rid yourself of what’s left of the perm. I think I’ve reached that point. The only thing holding me back is that I’m scared to death of having short hair.

My hair has been long all my life. Well… since I was 2 (My hair didn’t actually start growing until I was about 2). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having short hair. I actually think I would look nice with short hair. I’ve just never had short hair, I wouldn’t know what to do with it. I need the comfort of my emergency ponytail for the bad hair days (and there’s been many of them). It’s too much change. I’d be getting used to natural hair AND short hair. Yikes!

Although it’s very tempting at times, I’m going to try to work with my hair at this length for as long as I can. I’ll continue to trim my hair regularly, but just a little more often than if my hair was permed. I’m hoping slow and steady really does win the race.

One thought on “Big Chop?

  1. OMG, I feel exactly like this right now. (I know this is an old post but . . . ) All day I have been on the internet looking at youtube videos, researching blogs and other people’s hair care regimens. I think I am ready to stop hiding under my weave!!!! The weave I have in now is only two weeks old (and it was expensive) so I have not yanked it out yet, but I am so ready tooo! I have no relaxed hair left, so I am ready to ‘get to know’ my hair. Thanks for sharing your experience! Please keep doing it, its motivation for me. 🙂
