Today marks me 10 months post relaxer! I'm soo excited at how far i've come in 10 months. During my transition, I was sure I wouldn't chop my hair any earlier than 2 years. I even tried shortening the time period to 10 months because I wanted to start the new year out as fully natural lol. So this is the day I marked on my calendar, (along with Feb 3, 2014 lol) to do my big chop. That obviously didn't happen lol.
Sometimes things don't work out as planned but they work out for the best. :) I wouldn't change the fact that I chopped alot sooner than I planned because I think I would have been a mess if I had waited until now! I big chopped during the end of summer and I encountered problems with retaining moisture. However, I was able to correct it with daily cowashing and glycerin rich products. Neither of which would work for me now that it's freezing outside! LoL So I have enjoyed the past 10 months and I look at today, December 3, 2012 , and think 'I was strong willed enough to big chop early... and I love it.' :)
