In my last post I shared that I would be going back to using the products I used when I did my first big chop three years ago. The reason I stated that was because my curl pattern was different back then, they were more defined. As the saying goes stick to what you know, in this situation I am sticking to what works for me. Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus line. If you all don’t know Shea Moisture was the first product line that I purchased when I started my natural journey and their products have worked for me.
For the past week I have been trying to think of a hairstyle to do that will last a few days. When it comes to natural hair, it is a time-consuming task to do your hair. Some styles can take all day, this is why majority of naturalists opt for the wash n go method. This weekend I found the energy to do a perm rod set Friday night while others were out enjoying the fun.
February 2016 is when I did the big chop for the second time. If you’re not familiar with what the big chop is, it’s when a woman cuts off all her hair, or majority of her relaxed hair to start over and begin the natural journey. Natural means no chemicals, and no heat. I decided it was time for a length check 11 months in.
I did the big chop for the first time in 2013 right after my break up and coming to the realization my hair was damaged from being a blonde for the whole Summer and it being over processed as well keeping in sew-ins longer than I should have.
