If You’re Transitioning By Doing The Big Chop, This Helpful Video Will Help Make Your Experience That Much More Awesome.
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!
I just did the big chop
At Christmas now I’m feeling a bit self-conscious and a little dry when it comes to my hair what can I do I wear glasses and you see so much of my face what are some books that you would suggest I have a wider nose
I have a student who recently took her braids out. She said that she cried really hard and that she was really scared both during and after. When I asked for more details behind that fear she told me that she was picked on in elementary school (she’s a HS senior now), and has worn long braids ever since. I know that she is excited about her natural hair, but she needs some encouragement. I really want to support her, remind her how beautiful she is both inside and out and continue to cheer on this big step for her, but as a 34 year old white woman who hasn’t changed her hairstyle since 8th grade, I’m unsure of what to do/say. Any ideas would be wonderful.
I am transitioning for the second time and I don’t want tot do a big job any suggestions on hairstyles. Oh and did I mention Im over 40 years old and I already look very young in the face so the high bun and two pony tails just won’t do I also work in a predominately caucasian community . I just want to look appropriate for the work area. When I am not in that area I am a medical assistant I have to have my hair pulled back and off my shoulders. Please help I am open to suggestion. I currently just where two french braids.
