It's exactly one year since the big chop. Can't believe it has been that long already. But loving natural hair and it's diversity.
I have been asked why. I have been told that I need to perm again. Been made fun of about having peasy hair. But then at the same time, been compliment. Been told I have beautiful hair from family, friends and random individuals who stop me on the street to ask about going natural. And it's great.
I stopped perming in October of 2012. That is when I decided to go natural. But with permed ends you are simply transitioning, I did the big chop on June1, 2013.
To the experience; great. You can do so much with it; wear it curly., wash and go, twist, braid, straighten for a day or two. But for the most part, natural hair stays healthy and I live that. I actually do heart natural hair.
