THE CUT!

I can only imagine how nerve-racking this step can be.

The unknown. The questions. The doubts.

What will my hair look like? Am I going to like it?

But when you’re ready, you JUST are.

People chop their hair for different reasons: a new look, damaged hair, etc…

I had perfectly healthy hair and no issues. I woke up on 1-19-15, went through my wash regimen as I had scheduled an appointment to get braids done.

I got out of the shower and was trying to detangle my strands.

The toughest part of it was where the natural and relaxed hair meet. I also noticed that I had about 1-2 inches of natural hair that had grown in.

I thought: Why not NOW? Let’s do this!

I went to my kitchen, grabbed my scissors and started chopping, just like that!

I could not believe it!

I even asked Terence (my husband) to help me with the back as I couldn’t see.

Since my hair was wet, it was easy to see where exactly to cut.

I had/have no regrets.

All my life, I had cherished my long, beautiful, healthy hair and here I was chopping it.

I was kept saying to myself:

OH MY GOD! I AM CHOPPING MY HAIR! IT’S GONE!

But at the same time, I felt renewed, relieved.

No more going to the hair salons and spending 4-5 hours to get my hair done.

From this point on, I was going to take care of it MYSELF.

Coco Chanel once said:

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”

Funny enough, about a month later, I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant!

Yes, go ahead and LOL!

Nevertheless, I had no regrets.

I committed myself to this journey and embraced it with open arms.

Now, let’s take a BEFORE look at my relaxed hair.

Ready for the CHOPPED look?

Finally, let’s take a look at NOW!

It’s been almost 2 years since I did the big chop and look at the results.
