I Big Chopped!

This isn’t anything new as I cut my hair about a month and a half ago, but yeah! I took the plunge and big chopped.

When you’re a lady and you cut your hair, a lot of people ask why, so I’ll do y’all a favor by giving a proper explanation as to why I decided to cut my hair… Happy?! Lol!

I experienced a pretty bad case of postpartum hair loss, roughly three months after giving birth to my baby I started noticing my hair strands come out when I combed and brushed my hair. My once healthy, thick hair became brittle, dull and pretty much lifeless. What devastated me most was when I developed bald spots, that was it for me.

After much thought I decided to shave all my hair and start over afresh. I did the “BIG CHOP!”
There was no point in holding onto hair that was destroyed and far from causes of postpartum hair loss was damaged anyway from heat/straightening and coloring.

Let me throw it back a little, when I was sixteen I shaved all my gorgeous hair, my friends in high school were not pleased, at all, one of them (name withheld) went to the extent of instructing me never to shave my hair again! Haha! Smh!… Going bald doesn’t feel all that weird to me because I’ve done it before. I sorta kinda missed my hair the following morning though and posted this on Instagram ha!

A couple of days passed and thank goodness! I got used to my new look.

I absolutely love the fact that I don’t have to go to the salon anymore, I find so much joy in that! You have no idea!… I especially used to hate siting for 3 to 4 hours straight at the salon when getting a protective hairstyle like braids! Sheesh!

I’m currently on a mission to find a way to feel more comfortable and love my hair until it reaches the length I’ve always been aiming to have. I need to figure out what works and what doesn’t work for my hair as well. Once I’ve established a regimen that works 100% for my hair I’ll be sure to share it here.

It honestly feels good wearing my hair short. It feels like freedom guys, it’s like having a clean slate and getting a chance to take care of my hair the proper way from the beginning. Shaving my hair was the best decision I ever made.

I realize now that when I cut all my hair, I didn’t just let go of my beloved hair, I also let go of so much more… My emotional baggage, disappointments, insecurities, betrayals, rejections and so much more. I learnt about letting go. Letting go requires you to surrender and surrendering requires faith. Surrendering doesn’t mean you lose control, it means  you are in control, balanced and at peace with any outcome. Letting go means you place value on what’s important to you and what’s not. Letting go brings you closer to new and better things.

I’m sure most of you are familiar with Coco Chanel’s quote that says, “A woman who cuts her hair, is about to change her life.”

A woman’s hair truly holds so much more meaning than we are actually aware of, I mean our hair can tell someone who we are without having us to utter a single word. Crazy!

I want to end by mentioning this, If you’re thinking about cutting your hair or if you’ve recently cut your hair like myself, regardless of anyone’s opinion, your hair shouldn’t be a representation of your beauty… I know, I know, for most women, hair is a large part of what defines their beauty and they’d even be more than ready to pay for countless products to have it healthy and bouncy, but really, as I was saying you shouldn’t allow anyone to define your beauty, besides it’s you who has to look in the mirror to see yourself and more focus should definitely be put on inner beauty as equally as it’s put on outer beauty.

Special thanks to my sister Dorothy for taking my photos, thanks a lot sis, you can make a great photographer! 🙂

I hope the new year started off well for y’all! Thanks a lot for reading.
