Big Chop

     Yes, the title is correct. I - BIG - CHOPPED.  But it was so unintentional.  Here's what happened:  I took my braids out. Applied conditioner to my hair first, then detangled.  Instead of washing my hair thick ol' transitioning hair in a downward motion, I used all 10 fingertips & massaged my scalp & washed my hair in every which way I wanted to.  I was washing my hair as if  I had a fresh relaxer!  I didn't catch my wrong doing until after I finished shampooing & couldn't understand why my hair was all tangled- then it hit me!  At this point, I was sleepy & my arms were tired. So I cut & hacked my way through the tangles with a pair of shears.  The right side of my head, in the very front was completely chopped down to the natural hair.  I lost good sleep that night..

     The next morning, I woke up & cut to the point of no turning back.  I figured that I was going natural anyway & I didn't plan on being a long term transitioner either.  I went to a hair salon to for them to finish the job for me to all the relaxed ends completely off.  I also got a wash, deep condition & coil style.  I'm not feeling the coil style.  It's not me. Fortunately, I purchased a wig that I really like & will feel comfortable in.  I'll wear the wig to work & my own hair when I'm out with my boyfriend.  He loves my hair like this.  The brother keeps suggesting me to get dreadlocks.  It's too funny.  Anyway, my hair picks are below.  Go easy on me. :-)

On my way to the salon, to get the rest of the relaxed ends off.
All done now. Not feeling it but hey...
