I BC'd my hair myself. Right now I am in shock and I am slightly happy. I am scared mostly. I even almost cried which I haven't done in a long time. I don't know how I am going to tell my parents right now.

I am going to get a camera tomorrow to take some pics.

    I called and told my parents. My dad took it extremely well and I feel a storm brewing with my mom.

    Now I'm happy and I do feel free. It's much better to do my hair. Yep I pulled a Sunshine75 alright!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! :occasion9:

    I know it feels like it's been a long time coming for you, so I'm happy for you that you were finally able to do it. :D

    Don't worry about the mixed emotions. It seems like it's the "normal" reaction. It was mine too.

    Pretty soon the sick feeling will pass and it will be nothing but good feelings!!! But those will probably come after you've shown off your new, 100% natural, 200% beautiful hair. ;)

    There might be some negative reactions. Sometimes people become very attached to our appearance and the image that they have in their minds of how they think we should look. Just know that their reactions do not accurately reflect how attractive you are! They're used to seeing you a certain way, and when you change your appearance, it upsets them. But don't worry. They'll get over it. And you'll be all in love with your new look very quickly. I'm sure of it! :D

    Can't wait to see your pics! :)

    WOW, I just did the same thing yesterday...Maybe not a total "big chop," but I went from almost waist-length to just above shoulder length. It's the shortest my hair has been in years.

    I knew it was now or never. I was going to make a salon appointment but I knew I was just procrastinating. I knew I had to march into the bathroom and grab the scissors and just do it while I had the guts to.

    Just got sick of my overprocessed, damaged, dry hair weighing me down. I considered cutting it short-short but decided to just cut off the yucky parts, so this is what's left. I want to start fresh: No more relaxing, no more beating up my hair with hat styling, no more worrying about damage.

    Like you, I did it myself. And like you, I'm torn between feeling sickened and feeling totally liberated. My "new" hair feels soft and healthy and is bouncy, but I am horrified at losing my length. My long curls were kind of my trademark...even though the last few months they have looked more like a wrecked-out haystack.

    I've only received one comment -- a friend of mine said "Did you cut your hair?" and I said "Yes, it's a little shorter than I planned" and she said, "Well, it looks...(loooooong pause)...not bad." GACK!!!! I think she's just not used to seeing me without my witchy locks so I don't take it personally.

    Think about how great it feels to start over, though -- to have a fresh start. To heal your abused hair, to give it a fair shot. I figure, if I still totally hate my hair natural (when I've never really given it a shot because I would always give up and relax it), I can always go back to straightening. But for now, I'm going to try this. That's what I keep tellling myself, it may work for you too...Good luck to both of us!!!:toothy4:.

    Moons,

    OK - the fox is cute... but I want to see your hair!

    I'm glad you're getting used to your new do. And I'll bet it's much healthier, too!

    Mom's still asking me when I'm gonna "fix" my hair again - AKA relax it again.

    "Dagnabbit, Mom! I'm almost 45!"

    Congratulations again! :wav:
