    Try wetting you hair and seeing what part stays straight. Which ever does that's the relaxed ends and that's what will be cut off if you decide to BC. If its not a lot of relaxed hair left you don't need to BC . Just keep getting Trims and you'll be au naturale before you know it

    :idea1:you wanna know what i did?

    doesn't matter cause i'm going to tell you anyway XD .......i guess you could choose not to read the rest of this comment.......but i bet you wont XDXD

    anywho. i waited.....and trimmed............then one day i was in a really good mood and had just found my sicissors and CHOP.

    it all disappeared into the garbage XD i had a few :banghead: moments and then a few OH LORD WHAT HAVE I DONE!

    moments, but i can't help but love my twa XDXD (even as it freezes in the winter...)

    i mean, it seemed like a great idea at the time...:idea1:

    hehe. do whatever feels right at the moment XDXD how much natural stuffs is showing?
    3C/4A mix (Seriously it's all over the place)
    Hair is kinda fine and kinda thick.
    Super short, I'd like definition but styling products don't like me

    lol, i did read the whole comment, and ur so funny :) lol, i asked my mom if i could big chop and she said no we will "gradually" trim it, but she never takes me to get trims ! i was thinking i cud do it myself, i have about 4 inches of new growth, i have 3b, 3c, 4a, and, 4b in random spots but it blends well i dont have a whole lot or 3b or 4b so im mostly a 3c 4a ... what did ur parents say when u did the big chop? did they know ? where that angry ?
