Day 4: Big Chop Thoughts/Plans/Nerves

IMG_2134 I'm an impulsive person. So impulsive that when I finally decided that I am DONE with my relaxed ends and don't want to be bothered with working with two hair textures, I almost made an early appointment with my stylist to Big Chop. However, she's pretty far away from me, and I had no means of getting to where she was on such short notice, so I had to take a step back and think...

And the more I thought about it...the more I realized the Big Chop is perfect for me.

I have NO patience for transitioning. I'm 4 days in and already losing my mind. Plus I'm insanely curious about what my natural hair looks like underneath all this relaxed mess. I've been hearing a lot about different hair types, and while blog descriptions were helpful, I felt like I needed a visual. Luckily, I found this YouTube video:


If this is accurate, my hair is definitely Type 4. I'm hoping it leans towards 4a, because that seems easier to style than 4c, but I've already decided to love my hair no matter the texture, so I will find a way to make it work.

At the same time I am nervous, and anxious to just get it over with. I have no clue what I'll look like, and hope I still feel feminine after it's all over. I'm very lucky to have the support of family and friends in all this, so I know they'll carry me through on the inevitable bad days.
