    She may be scared that your hair is going to take a long time to grow back, which is understandable. That's the reason why a lot of women choose not to cut it. Instead of cutting it, maybe you should consider getting braids or twists. Senegalese twists or box braids are cute, low maintenance, and it can help the growth of your virgin hair. Hope this helps
    Hair type: 4b/4c
    Last perm: February 2011
    Big Chop: October 2011
    Reason for Transition: 1. perm chemicals are my hair's arch nemesis 2. desire to restore health and growth

    I have to agree with liyah. I'd just let Mom's desire take precedence. I'm currently wearing box braids and I love creating new styles for them. Another style I'm loving is getting my hair cornrowed into a ponytail and wearing one of those synthetic ponytails from the wig store. Try to understand where your mom is coming from and wait for your curls to grow out to her liking.
