If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know this: I did the Big Chop!. It’s been a long time coming. I have been contemplating cutting my hair for months now. I’ve shared my thoughts on this matter on YouTube a while back as well. Anyways, I finally decided to start over. Although my hair was long, I knew that it was not healthy.
As a matter of fact, my hair was damaged beyond repair: I had a lot of single strand knots and split ends. My hair was always dry and tangled, no matter what I did. I was not retaining much length either as I was experiencing a lot of breakage. As many of you can probably see, my ends were thin and my hair was dull overall. Needless to say, I knew it was time to have a fresh start.
I am extremely happy with my hair cut. I actually LOVE my hair. For the first time ever, I am satisfied with my hair and accept the way it is. I am finally enjoying my hair as I am no longer focused on length.
Is YOUR hair damaged? Some signs include:
-Hair feels dry, scratchy, rough or hard
-No length retention
-Consistent hair thickness from roots to ends
-Consistent color from roots to ends
Remember, once your hair is damage, there is no fixing it! You can try to temporality patch it to together with conditioners but damage is irreversible!
