Before I did the big chop, my hair was pretty damaged, and some of the hair products I purchased to repair and restore my hair wasn’t just working for me. Frustrated, I began surfing the internet for alternate solutions and stumbled upon the big chop”.
So, I went to a stylist to get the chop done. After telling him I wanted a TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro), I waited for my turn. A big chop involves cutting relaxed hair off and growing your hair without chemically altering the texture of your hair.

A few seconds later, I heard the blades of the scissors snipping against each other and the clipper buzzing, and I watched as my hair fell. Finally, the stylist recommended a few products and some hair styling tips. For the first time in a long time, I felt the wind on my scalp, and it felt great. My hair is over twelve months old and still counting, and my natural hair journey has been enlightening and fun.
