Would you do it?
I’ve been fascinated by stories from women who have Big Chopped, grown a full head of natural hair and Big Chopped a second time, third and more. I, personally, love that freedom. When I first did my BC it was to save myself and my hair from the never-ending cycling of burns and breakage. And I am aware that you can maintain relaxed hair without these side effects, but I a) Never enjoyed the process and b) wanted to return to my natural curls.
I get excited when I see a hair journey that includes multiple BCs. Some ladies do it because they get tired of the haircare process, some do it because they want to switch it up and some miss their short ‘do. I feel like the TWA was a process of getting to know yourself again. What do you do when you have all the time in the world? Well, what would you do if your haircare routine went from however many hours a week to 5 minutes each day?
So to answer my initial question: Would I do it? Yeah. Totally. When? Whenever it felt good to me. I am enjoying my hair and I want to see what’s it capable of. I can’t see it happening in the near future but I wouldn’t rule it out either.
