Well I'm a day late and a dollar short because today's actually October 10 but I started this post on August 17 (the day that I got my hair cut). Anywayyy, I didn't really do a big "big chop" like cut all my hair off but I cut my heat damage off so I can start my healthy natural hair journey. Though I did not cut off all my hair, this still was a big step for me. When I first cut my hair it was exciting and I felt like a new woman.
Now, there are days where I love my hair and then there are days that I hate it because I can only do so much with it. I do not regret cutting my hair at all because I would rather have healthy hair and I swear I think it's growing lol but I know the payoff will be worth it. Because I did not cut too much off, my hair is in the awkward length phase, too long for finger waves but too short for a ponytail or bun. I'm still experimenting but if you catch me with a scarf on I'm having a bad hair day.
If you have been contemplating doing the big chop just do it because if you continue to think about it you won't do it. Or just cut little by little. You can do this girl! We're all in this together. You may be shocked at first or you may love it, either way, there will be days you hate your hair but that happens anyway.
Another thing is I also still need to try more natural hair products because right now jojoba oil and Shea Moistures' Curl Enhancing Smoothie is my holy grail. I love how light jojoba oil is and it smells great and my hair loves it. Curl enhancing smoothie is nice as well and helps my curls POP! I will be back at the six month mark to show you guys my progress, give recommendations on hair product successes and fails, and even various hairstyles. Thanks for being patient with my posts because I am still trying to get the hang of this college thing *sighs* but I will...TRY to post more. No but really, I will find my groove again. Have a great week!
