I have been gradually cutting my hair since last spring. I had never really had short hair and I wanted a change. Somewhere along the road I started considering going natural. I have a few friends and sorors who have gone natural and they said it was one of the best decisions they made. I last relaxed around Thanksgiving of 2009 and knew in the back of my mind that was going to be the last time. I went in for a trim earlier this month and was tempted to chop it all off but I wasn't quite ready yet. Well last Friday on my lunch break I went to a local salon and chopped all my relaxed hair off. Oh it was so liberating and I haven't stopped smiling since! The stylist kept commenting on how calm I was. I told her I knew I was ready so why wait. As thick as my hair is I was not looking forward to transitioning and dealing with two different textures of crazy thick hair. Well without further ado here is the new do:
Have a fantastic week!
