Finally Did My Big Chop!!

KinkyQuirkyKinkyQuirky Posts: 41Registered Users
Hi, all! I just wanted to share some pics of my big chop! There are some texture shots too :) It was done at a salon this Saturday. I transitioned for 5 months and have 2-3 inches of new growth. I planned to big chop on 12/31/10, but the new growth became too much. I can't believe all of this was under the relaxer! I have school tomorrow, so I'm a bit nervous about what people will say. 90% of the girls at my school are relaxed, so I'll stick out like the biggest sore thumb But ah well, haters gonna hate, right? :p

    Congratulations and welcome :hello2: Your hair is cute. Good luck in school tomorrow and don't let them get to you, just wear some big loops and shiny lip gloss and you will be the envy of all of them :)

    Okay, so I must have PMS, because I almost cried when I read this. Anywho, I'm glad you had a great day at school and people liked your hair! :occasion9:
