Hey Curlfriends! My last relaxer was April 2013 and wore my hair in a sew in from May 2013 until the beginning of July 2013. I took my weave out and then decided I wanted to go natural. I did my big chop on July 27th, 2013.
Moments before the Big Chop
This is the last picture I have of my hair before my big chop. I had just taken my hair out of a weave.
Moments after the Big Chop
Here I am right after I did the big chop. This was the most nerve racking experience of my life. I remember sitting in the salon wanting to cry as she cut off all of my hair. After she finished I got in my car and cried the whole way home. I remember being so afraid to show my fiance. I had no idea what he was going to say or think! I’ll never forget the way his eyes lit up when I showed him. He was so in love with my short hair! He gave me the confidence to continue with my natural hair journey and I’ve been going strong ever since!
Years after the Big Chop
It’s been almost 2 years now and I love my hair in this two strand twist out. I can’t stress enough how important it is for newly naturals to be patient! Give your hair some TLC and she will grow back stronger than ever!
