Has half a year arrived already? Where has the time gone? I cannot believe I sat in my hairdresser’s chair six months ago today and told her to chop my hair off. All of it!
My Big Chop has been liberating. It has also been a scary experience. That’s because I have not seen my natural hair texture since I was 11-years-old. I had no idea what my hair would look or feel like, but I have since gotten over that fear. I also had to tackle issues such as porosity and dryness head on. I invested in a hair steamer, bought natural hair products and hair scarfs all in an effort to grow healthier hair. Growing natural hair has been tedious but there hasn’t been a day when I thought about going back to harsh chemical relaxers and extensions. And for that, my hair has thanked me by growing strong and unique.
Six months down, infinite to go!
