BECAUSE IT IS JUST HAIR….RIGHT?

Lately I have been having the itch to cut my hair.  And when I say lately, I mean for months! I’ve had very short hair in the past, but I have never literally shaved my head…  Well, all of that changed last night!

I went from all of this (which by the way, was cut prior to me leaving for Blogfest in May)

Before shaved head

To this

shaved head after

I parted my hair and put a ponytail at the top and in the back.  I cut the back first because I figured if this was a case of insanity, I could easily fix this problem by heading to the salon and asking for a nice bob or something. But after that back ponytail was cut, I felt so good!!! It really wasn’t hard for me to get to this

This is totally not for everyone, I know, but I must say that I feel so FREE! Like I’m not held down.  So free from a ponytail and flat irons.  But most importantly so free from chemicals.  I have great hair that really does not need many chemicals, but I used them anyway.

I tried on this dress last night just to see if I still look like a girl… The answer is no. I LOOK LIKE A WOMAN!!!!

Wow, you did the BC aka Big Chop - looks good!

Your going to love being chemical free -- I go back and forth between my natural curls and flat iron. I havn't used chemicals in my hair in over 11 years and honestly don't know why I ever did??

You look cute it really highlights your smile and cheekbones :)

You look great girl!! I cut my hair really short a few years ago to get rid of the relaxer and that was the best decision for myself and my hair.

You were beautiful then, but girrrrl you ARE a masterpiece now! Welcome to the NHC(Natural Hair Club!

I had contemplated just like you for months before I did big chop, but I have loved it every since! I am going on my 4th year and loving being chemical free!

Along with natural beauty I think going natural brings out an inner beauty that you will wear through and through!

Congratulations...!!!
