Sweetdrk1 Chops Again!
Hello Nikki,

I had to share with you because without your forum, I am sure I would have failed miserably the first time around. It is also because of the enviorment that you built and nutured that I was able to do the big chop again with confidence. When I began this journey my goal was healthy hair, I never wanted length and Sasha quickly proved that if I allow her to, she will grow down my back. So today I went to the salon and had my other Nikki (yes my stylist is named Nikki too) do her thang. I was/am very pleased with the outcome.
What did I learn from the first time?
  • I don’t need all the fancy products, Sasha just needs a drink of water
  • No two heads of hair are the same; therefore I paid more attention to what MY hair needed
  • I am protein sensitive
  • The impact of a good butter when I want to stretch my hair
  • The importance of getting my ends trimmed on a regular basis
  • That everyone has an opinion and will offer it up when it comes to MY hair (really? who asked you)
  • That the reason I cut it the first time as well as this time is because that is what I wanted to do. Nothing more, nothing less
  • I love CN.com because the atmosphere is one of sharing and caring; unlike some of the other things I have read

I just made 16 months since my first BC and I can’t say that I will allow it to get as long this time. As long as it’s healthy I am happy. To all those embarking upon this natural journey, this is a personal decision so do it only because that is what YOU want to do!

    I love it. I have been thinking about cutting my hair lately too, just because I can. I would like to see how long it will grow first.

    Oh, and your hair looks great, but who asked me so am I allow to complement or should I keep my opinion to myself. Ahhhhh, I am confused by the rules of a single-occupancy universe.

    Do people declare they cut their hair "because that is what I wanted to do" because the "haters" were suppose to care?

    If CN is a caring and sharing atmosphere, then maybe the "who asked you" and the "because that is what I wanted to do" perspective/attitude is misplaced and should be apart of the "other" community you referenced. If someone asked about your hair, then "SHARE". If no one asks you about your hair, don't worry; you can pretend like you are being barraged by negative comments and respond with a witty rebuttal like "because I want to" and don't forget to stick out your tounge or cross your arms as a sign of victory ( you might want to add a naaa naaa boo boo to make sure the haters and non educated people get the message)
