Big Chop 3

 

R.I.P. to my hair – it’s gone.  I recorded the cut for you.

Scissors and haircuts have been heavy on the brain. In February I had a trim/shape (see 3.4 Years Later post) and 25 days after that (March 12, 2016) this happened…

And I went even shorter on March 19, 2016.

Current mode? “I’m dancin and emphazing.”

3.4 Years Later…

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”

-Michael “MJ” Jordan

I am not saying that I’m Jordan, but I’m not denying it either. However, I can confirm that I fail over and over.

My hair and I have an on-off relationship, like my friends who change their Facebook status every time I sneeze.

I went back to natural 3.4 years ago. For the past three years my failing streak began around wintertime. I slack on trims, moisturizing, and bunch of other stuff that stunts growth and hair health. Why? I dedicate less time to my hair.

I fail in winter because I am…

  • wrapping up the year more and taking care of my hair less
  • celebrating holidays (esp. my burfday)
  • frustrated with winter for sucking out all of my hair’s moisture
  • adding new interests/activities to my better my life
  • not big on protective styling
  • afraid of wigs (I briefly braved on this year though)

Scissors have a way of wiping away my failures, so I booked an appointment with Felicia Leatherwood for a trim and shape. I have fresh ends for a fresh start and extra volume.

Here we go again…

As for the hair… If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I cut my hair on August 31. I will reveal the reasons for the cut in a Youtube video on Monday.

Have a great weekend! Take a shot for me. xoxo

How Long Can You Grow?

Do you have a hair goal? Mine is to reach armpit length by my 2nd Naturalversary (September 24, 2013). Right now, the back of my hair is about shoulder length. Do you think I can do it?
