I cut off all my hair!!! (and I LOVE it)

So after many months of threatening to cut off my hair and start over, I finally did it. I woke up this morning with resolve to actually walk into someone's salon and have them chop off all my hair. Yes folks, I am officially on team natural hair! My hair was pretty short to begin with but having relaxer free hair seemed like such a far fetched dream. That all changed today Honey. Why did I do it? Well to be honest I did it for a number of reasons, namely:

1) It's too hot outside to be having a lot of dang gone hair on my head. Summers in NY aint no joke!
2) I just needed a fun and exciting hair change. I get bored quickly with the same look over and over again.
3) Over spending hours upon hours in the salon. I.JUST.CANT.DO.IT!
4) I felt like it!!

I am in love with my new hair!! I love Love LOVE it!! I of course plan on still rocking my weaves/wigs but I plan on staying relaxer free indefinitely! I don't know why I waited so long to do this!

    Of all your reasons, number 4 is my favorite! I know that you will not miss the relaxer, or the salon, LOL

    I think the 'great chop' gives you a grand way to start afresh and cuts down on the long hours in the salon, and you have given yourself a chance to try out something new in your whole hair journey so far!!!

    Please follow me back on

  5. Thanks Ernest!! It's grown a bit since the big chop and I fall more in love as each day passes.
