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!

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.
