I am not my hair...but it is awesome!!!

One year ago today I did the big chop and cut all my hair off.  I remember that first shampoo and laughing hysterically at the shampoo bowl as I felt water hit my scalp for the first time in ages without first having to wade through a mass of hair.  I remember Baby Sister being quite upset with me for cutting my hair off and seriously not talking to me for a few weeks.  (Well she talked to me on the phone but she refused to come and visit me and was conveniently gone when I went to visit her and the Momma.)  I knew my hair was growing but looking back through pictures from the past year really puts it into perspective.  I officially have an afro and the Momma's boyfriend who isn't her boyfriend has taken to call me Michael Evans from Good Times.  

Here is a look back...





And here is my hair today...










 Can you tell I am exited!?!?!  I have been asked if I would do it all over again and the answer is a resounding YES!!!  I love my natural hair and often think back to why I didn't do it sooner.  Oh well better late than never.

I know this is a late, very late post but I just discovered your blog. So better late than never. Your sewing skills are just amazing and everything looks so very professional. On the big chop - love it and the beauty of it as it has grown. Yep I did the big chop years ago and am loving my beautiful God given kinky kurly difficult to work with hair - but if I had to do it over - yes I would in a heart beat.
