It’s always nice to see someone diligently summons the courage to not only do the big chop, but to do it themselves and record it for others to watch. I must admit, I adjudicated for weeks on whether I would go through with the big chop or just let the natural hair grow out. I ended up letting the hair grow out and then cut out the heat damaged ends.
This video is for those who are contemplating on doing the big chop. I know it’s not an easy decision to make and it’s not one that should be made lightly either. This tutorial is in honner of those of you who are pondering whether to do this or not. This is not like other videos I’ve seen where the host goes on and on before they start chopping.
To be clear, I’m not being unsympathetic nor callous to these women, because I know it’s a big decision. I’m referring to the amount of time it takes to get to the actual chopping. We’re in a hurry to see the end result! (If you’re a Youtuber take note) In this video, she goes right for it which helps make the process seems much smoother.
I notice she still had some permed hair left so I’m guessing she’ll get those next time. This video can be a great motivator for those of you who are transitioning to natural hair. I know for most women it takes incredible strength to do that and if you’ve already done the big chop let us know about your progress so far.
As you can see the result was great and she looks gorgeous (Gallery below). The little girl in the back was really cute – she has a cute laugh!
