Soooooo I cut my hair again lol.
What was supposed to be a simple trim to start taking off some relaxed ends (mentioned in my previous post), turned into a mini big chop with all my relaxed ends gone.
So my hair has gone from this
Not gonna lie, that’s a huge improvement. She literally “fixed” my hair. It’s so much easier dealing with this hair than my previous hair.I just wasn’t expecting that much to come off. But hey, I’m happy.
Next issue to tackle: Low Porosity Hair
I stumbled into transitioning when I missed my hair appt for 3 months. I was in school learning to do nails so I had my hair done by the girls studying cosmetology.
I wasn’t getting any relaxer treatment. I had been doing so since I was 10. My hair really thick and I struggled to maintain it. My hair was constantly getting shorter and shorter. So i wore a ponytail all the time. The damage hair by my ears stuck out so I wore a band.
As I neared graduation from beauty school I saw waves in my roots again. I had seen them before but I always treated them to make them straight. This time I wanted to leave it alone and let them keep growing.
There was plenty information on transitioning and big chopping.
I was obsessed with curly hair photos and videos. Every time I washed my hair I wanted to check if it had grown. So a few months later, I cut my hair. I looked like a young Halle Berry. However, my stylist treated my hair again. So I had short relaxed hair…a step backwards.
Since the back of my hair was shorter, that grew out faster. But I eventually treated it again.
6 months later here I am. The back of my hair is now natural while the front and top is still in transition. I have been trimming it back regularly slowly getting rid of the treated hair.
My hair is very healthy despite this which I’m happy about.
