hair - relaxed, long hair...don't care (chop it chop it!!)
Jan 1, 2010

I decided to start my relaxed hair journey in 2008, and grew it to a nice even thick length (big improvement on my former haircare practices). I then decided to 'go natural' and chopped it after transitioning for a short while.
Don't get me wrong - it was in good condition, but I wanted more from my hair. These were the days when I would write in forums that 'my hair loves heat'!?!! hahahahaa
The main reasons I cut it was because I knew if I let it grow any longer, it would feel too long to chop and I knew I wanted natural hair.

Transitioning

Transitioning was fine at first but as my hair grew, it became harder to look after so I cut it to shoulder length in October 2010 (BC in Jan 2011). I had blowdrys, pressed hair, or twistouts/bantu knots. Washday and detangling was hard work!

After my big chop (see other album), I was devastated as it looked slightly nuts haha BUT now, six months on, I have no regrets and wish I would have done it sooner.

Big Chop

The day I decided to big chop was a big day for me. I had never really had short hair, and couldn't remember how to manage natural hair. I almost regretted it at first, but with support from friends (and my back up half wig), the texture came in and I now love it...
