YUP…I’M DOING IT!
So I’ve decided that I’m going to finally do it…I’m a finally get off the “Creamy Crack” aka hair relaxers. Now there is no DEEP reason for me doing so, I’m not trying to get back to my roots or discover who I am as a “Black Woman” (cause after going to an all white high school I figured that out pretty quick). I’m doing it for 2 simple reasons.
1.) It’s cheaper
2.) I want to try something different
THAT’S IT! And as much as I am excited about this whole thing, I already know the first few months might suck…like REALLY HARD! Now I can’t deny that my hair is very important to me…HELL I’ve missed parties, trips and dates cause my hair was not up to par…but after I had most of the front right side of my hair pulled out from the scalp during a fight, hair was no longer THAT big of a deal.
I’m already having second thoughts, and it’s been only a month since my last relaxer! I’m already freaking out about what I’m going to do about my hair for my sister’s small graduation on February 3rd (the big one is in May). I’m hoping by that time to have enough natural hair to come in that I can go on ahead and just do the BIG CHOP (BC). As of right now I’ve been keeping my hair short since March of last year, and then I went to keeping it really short and almost to a fade in the back and on the sides during the summer.
I’ve been watching videos on youtube to see how other women dealt with their emotions once they committed to the BC. These videos have given me great tips on what I can use to help my hair grow and stay healthy…also how to cope with the aftershock of cutting your hair.
WELP…that’s about all I have to say for now, I defiantly plan on updating on how everything is going…pictures included. I’m super anxious to get the process started and if I could I would just cut it now but I don’t think I could be totally cool with that!
