What It's Like After Big Chopping for the Second Time



1BlessedNatural: What It's Like After Big Chopping for the Second Time



Hey, my blessed naturals,
I hope you are all having a great 4th of July weekend! It's been 3 weeks since my second Big Chop, and it feels great! I enjoy having a short hair care regimen. Sometimes, I do miss my hair, because I'm so used to having it. The one question I've gotten a lot is what will I do differently, and the answer is plenty! Most of these things are covered in the 6 Mistakes I Made as a New Natural article.

The main thing is that I now know what products work well for my hair, so I will not be so much of a product junky this time around. I stick to my same shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, and oil.

Also, there is not as much anxiousness about my natural hair, because I know what to expect. Through my first Big Chop, I learned how to retain the length of my hair. I know how my hair looks long, short, curly, and straight. I know what happens to it when I use certain products, so the curiosity I had after my first Big Chop is no longer present. However, the enthusiasm and love for my natural hair is still there. Get me?
