How my Big Chop journey started.

Friday 13th

We had a girls night out today. Someone asked how my big chop journey started so, here’s how it started. It’s a Friday, and there is no way this thing on my head is going to keep me from having fun! Today is Mei’s birthday and she has organized this super cool soirée.

Yes, I know, because I helped her do it.

There is going to be music, good food, wine, pool partying, and so many other entertainments. So, I’m not just going to have fun, but since most of the organizing was done by yours truly, I have to go and receive my glory!

I am so proud of myself.

After all the stress and almost giving up, and now it’s all set, and the D – day is here, and it is almost time to savour all of my hard work, I totally forget that it’s a mess up there; a huge mess on my head.

What am I going to do with it?

I’ve spent the entire day doing last minute calls and making sure everything is going as planned and now this?

There are still few strands of long relaxed hair, while the rest are short and looks almost natural. It has been manageable for some days, but as the days past, it has became unbearable. Tying to figure out my next move, with all of the stress and the fact that I am running out of time, in this very moment, I am so done. I am exhausted, and I am letting go.

I’ve grown my hair for almost a decade, and it has grown nicely. It was long, full and had a lovely texture, but because I relaxed it, it looked dyed. A darkish brown and somehow, it seemed like after 6 years of flaunting its glorious beauty, it was beginning to die. It kept getting worse and now it looked dead, so I decided it was time to say good bye.

I picked up a scissors, and I cut it all off. Yes, I did a Big Chop
