I Wanna Chop It Off!

Ahh! This is getting so hard now! I'll be six months post this week and it is getting so difficult to detangle and style my hair. I had a long, hard, deep think yesterday while fighting to put my hair in bantu knots about why I was doing this, why am I transitioning so long, why is my curl pattern not what I remember...I refuse to touch my hair for the next week. I'm afraid I'll cut it off before I am ready, or go buy a box of caustic soda! Anyone feeling like this?!?!

    1/11/10 was the date of my 6 month post relaxer and I decided to Big Chop. I feel that I did jump the gun on my decision:-( Don't get me wrong, I love my natural hair, but I wish that I waited a little and got some more length. Right now my hair is 2 1/2-3in before shrinkage and I'm just not feeling the length because I have a full face and short hair does not compliment me at all.

    Right now i'm rollersetting my hair to add some length and fullness. Back to be patient again...sigh...
