Should I chop?

inquisitorinquisitor Posts: 3Registered Users
Ive been transitioning for 6 months but my hair doesnt process very well so only like 3-4 inches of my hair came out straight and the rest was very under processed (texlaxed? ) Now that I have new growth my hair (3c) is literally curly, then straight, then curly again. It looks very silly and breaks from the straight part. I can't manage the three textures. Should I just chop?

    It's your decision and nobody can tell you what you 'should' do. If you're saying you can't manage your hair as it is, then I think the answer is obvious :) do what's right for you and what you feel comfortable with
    3B. Med porosity. Med thickness. Med density.

    The only other possible choice, if you really don't like your hair as it is, is keeping it always in a bun or something until it grows out enough for you to big chop without having hair too short. But if it's breaking where it's straight, I think you already have your answer. :/ unless you cut it it's going to keep getting worse.
    A 2C, wishfully thinking of being 3a. Sometimes I get there. CG since October 2013, Eurocurly (just for a few months more!), completely low-porosity now. SBL, wanting elbow length.
