Hello :)
So basically my issue is that I'm not sure whether to classify myself as a long transition-er or say that I've already done the big chop. I cut my hair as a style ( picture one ), not for any purpose of going natural but I've recently decided to transition to natural in support of my close friend and just for more self empowerment. ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1377807112.346755.jpg . That is a picture of the back of how low my hair is/ was, I've cut it even short before I began transitioning. I'm only six weeks post relaxer. This is a picture of the front: ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1377807175.642690.jpg . So I went from ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1377807212.176825.jpg to the length I have after the cut. I'm not sure if that's considered a big chop. I don't really want to do long transitioning which is why I'm really considered with the classification. I've cut out heat all this week and plan to keep that going, I've bought products and plan to deep condition and do my first protein treatment to restore my hair from all of the heat damage and chemical relaxation. Thank you for your help!

    I use to go up to 10 weeks between relaxers - average time 8 weeks.

    Also styles with shorter or shaved parts have been rocked for years.

    So IMHO you are neither yet.

    If you did cut off all your relaxed ends then you would have clearly done a big chop.

    So basically I have not done a big chop but it won't really take long for me to transition ?? ^ I guess I'm just being difficult about it. *shrugs TY

    Oh nevermind I think I understand. I am not yet classified as long transitioned or big chop... I'm basically a "Long" transitioner unless I was to cut all of my permed hair off which I have not. Of course lmao

    You know what you have to start doing? Quit worrying and have patience.

    In 6 months you will be thinking about what products work on your x length natural hair.
