I did not transition to being all natural, meaning grow the perm out of my hair. I big chopped in stages. Being that my hubby cut my hair, I placed myself in his very capable hands and he decided to cut a little at a time. No, my hubby is not a licensed hairstylist but he cuts his own hair and our sons. He just has a good eye:-) These first pics are from my relaxed, long hair days: The black headband was covering up all the new growth that I hadn’t touched up/permed and was considering NOT touching up! 🙂

I was soooo anxious and excited to see my natural hair I told him to cut it completely off. I was tired of dealing with 2 textures even though it was much shorter than it had been. So this is with he did next:
I eventually got tired of those “strings” hanging in my face and had hubby cut those off as well. This is what we ended up with:
I absolutely love being natural. I’m having a ball learning my hair. I so look forward to the day(s) each week when it’s time to (re)do my hair. I love experimenting with different techniques and products. I am not a product junkie and have not tried a lot of products but I think I have found my staple products and a semblance of a regimen. I’ll share all of that in upcoming posts.
Did you big chop or (long-term) transition?
