My Big Chop

Hey guys this blog is about my journey on going natural! On December 19th, 2009 I finally did it, I cut ALL of my hair. I didn't want to do it, but i was fed up with the state of my hair: short, dry and damaged. Before i cut my hair i spoke with someone and got a consult. lol the next day i was at the barber shop sitting nervously waiting for my turn in the chair. When I finally got in the chair a lady was sitting across from me under the hair dryer and all i saw was her eyes get really big when the barber made his first cut, I almost cried because I couldn't believe that I was really doing this. After all was said and done I got up out of the chair and looked to see my new look. At first, I was thinking OMG i look like a dkye lol what am I going to do get look like a woman? I am not the girliest of girls; trust me I'm not, but I still want to look like one lol

My first two weeks with my short look took everyone to get use to. I got great compliments s about my hair, most people did believe me when I told them what I did and had to send pictures to confirm it lol after browsing a few videos on youtube and speaking with some friends I finally got my hair care regiment on lock!

My Hair Regiment:
Co-Wash every other day
Shampoo once a week ( to clean dirt)

Deep condition once a month with special recipe(in early stages)

Apply leave-in-Conditioner after every wash
Oil my hair every morning and night and apply my special hair grease *will fill you in on my recipe
Wrap hair in silk bonnet or scarf

REMINDER: Find what best works for you

It will be a month on January 19th, 2010 and my hair has had some growth. Now that I found out what works for me I'm sure that my hair will grow even faster now. The picture above is about a week after I cut it off!

I'm glad that I finally made the decision to go natural and I'm sure you will too!
