Hair Story

I didn’t really plan on big chopping my hair or going natural, it was an ‘accidental’ BC. In between my (dangerously tight) weaves, I noticed that my previously thinning edges had now balded severely and I didn’t have enough to start my weave at the front of my hairline. It looked really terrible. I have pics on my blog, as a cautionary tale! Knowing the damage I’d done, I still convinced myself that all I needed to do was get my ‘ends clipped’ and take a short break between weaves. CRAZY TALK! I explained to the stylist that I just wanted ‘my damage cut off’ and I walked out with a short, fluffy TWA. I guess she listened Ha ha! It wasn’t long enough for a weave, and it was too short for me to braid. I didn’t have a choice but to figure out what to do. That’s when I Googled styles and stumbled upon CurlyNikki and the amazing online natural hair community. It’s one of the best mistakes I’ve ever made! My official ‘unofficial’ Big Chop day is November 9, 2011.
