I did the BIG CHOP!

doctoramorenadoctoramorena Registered Users Posts: 44
After 6months of transitioning I did the BC! I have mixed emotions right now...I feel free but at the same time a lil self conscious of the new look. However, I've got supportive friends (can't say that about family yet) and have received positive comments so far.

Thanks to NC for the advice and encouragement!

    Love the do! I just chopped mine today, and haven't had it this short since college, and even though I like it, I'm feeling self conscious about what others might think....How is it going for you? It looks great!

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply, for I've been extremely busy with school and life these days (but who isn't lol :lol: )

    Anyway, I appreciate all the kind comments. Allicat...your hair looks gorgeous! My hair is doing so-so these days. I'm still trying to find the best products for my hair. I'm struggling with styling and managing my hair, but I know I still made a good decison.

    Thanks again everyone!
