I chopped again!! Last week, after wash day I just said to myself, "No more" ! I had left my faux locs in for almost 6 weeks but had washed only once. My hair was very dirty when I undid it and I dreaded the wash all through. Took a while to detangle and then had to section and braid and do all the wash day usual stuff. Ha! I just felt really tired even thinking about it alone.
I just didn't feel like having to continue detangling for close to an hour each wash day (which has basically been non-existent in the past months) and I really wanted to go back to washing my hair at least twice a week. Having both textures was just not making me have that and I no more have the liberty of time. I'm on such a tight schedule.
So snip, snip, snip felt like heaven! I feel so free. And so far, I have no regrets. I didn't even shed a tear which I thought I would do after watching so many big chop videos...lmao. This week, I washed my hair twice as planned. No stress. For now, it's short enough to have a comb through easily. What the future holds, I have no idea. Do I still have waist length goals? For now, no. I'm looking forward more to thickness than length. 'Fro life!!
As I begin my natural hair journey, I could use some advice from you naturals already. You know, the heart to heart ones.
Yay or Nay?
