I’ve been natural for about 5 years. About
two months ago, I decided to go into a Great Cuts to get a trim. My
hair was not pressed out or anything. So what happened as a result of
this? An unexpected big chop! Eeek! I screamed and was a little upset
at the stylist. But at that point, what can you do? My hair was
already on the floor, literally. I went home and washed my hair.
Feeling my tiny coils made me feel some sense of renewal. I got out of
the shower feeling better about my hair. All of my friends
complimented me on my hair saying how wonderful it looked and that my
unexpected haircut looked… planned.
Two months later and I couldn’t be happier that this cut happened. I
have more confidence now. I have learned to embrace all of me all over
again and it has been a delightful experience. My hair is growing
back healthier and fuller than before and I love it more now than I
loved it five years ago. It’s amazing what a pair of scissors can do!
My cut may have been unexpected and unwanted but sometimes the
unexpected is just what we need!
