INSPIRATION | Big Chop to Stop Cancer

I'm so excited to see this, but sorry that I didn't see it prior to Sunday when I cut my hair. I definitely would have participated. If you're thinking of cutting your natural hair or know someone who is, PLEASE READ!

(via ZuriWorks - Andrene Taylor)

The Big Chop to Stop Cancer invites women to use their hair as a statement that goes beyond personal aesthetics. We invite women to “big chop” to take a stand for the health and well being of their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters. We invite women to be fearless and big chop. Each big chop promotes lifesaving cancer screening and early detection.
All women, regardless of race, ethnicity, and hair type, are invited to participate in the Big Chop to Stop Cancer Campaign.
Our hope is to unite women for the greater good – saving black women’s lives from cancer.
Stylists, salons, and individuals across the country are invited to participate in the Big Chop to Stop Cancer with ZuriWorks, Johnny Wright, and other celebrity stylists.
Find out how you can help women who face the challenging road ahead of cancer treatment and recovery with dignity and joy.

Natural Hair|The cut AFTER the BC

I've decided to cut my hair after my last post. For several reasons.
1. I needed a change
2. My hair was growing out in an awkward way where I couldn't wear it completely out w/o looking like I had a mullet.
3. I had breakage from over-doing it with protective styles last year. (I didn't take a break for 6 months)
4. I've been seeing so many fly hair cuts lately!
5. I'd rather have healthy, short hair over broken and unhealthy long strands, any day.

Natural Hair... WOES??

Hey, ladies 'n gents.

I'm coming to you today in the most honest way: I'm so over my hair. Yes. It's true. No, I don't regret being natural and no, I don't want to relax or straighten (I've been natural for 4 years now). What does this mean? I'm not sure, but I think I am really just BORED with my hair. It is in a weird grow-back stage where the length is awkward (really long in the back, shorter in the front). I got my hair cut in layers last Sept/Oct and initially it made my hair fuller and yielded great twistouts. I also got color then. However, now it's growing out and not laying right and every twist out turns into a high puff because I'm never happy with it. Smh Over it, I tell you! Another thing: I think I have become dissatisfied with my hair after wearing so many protective styles over the last 1-1.5 years. Now, I'm brainstorming ways to "keep it interesting" and am strongly considering cutting in. I don't even know how I want it cut but I need a major change. And the sooner, the better.
