Tales of the Big Chop: Ronda
Labels: Tales of the Big Chop
Ok my story began in a very odd and unexpected manner. I didn't do my big chop on purpose but rather out of necessity. I lost my job in March of 2008 and had an enormous amount of time on my hands, too much time. I was at home one day and kept looking at my hair and it seemed uneven to me which I didn't like so I decided to cut it my self and even it out. As I was cutting I realized I had basically ruined my hair and even cut it to the scalp in a couple of places so I had big patches of hair missing..it was a horrible mess. When my husband came home I hid it from him for a while under a scarf, eventually I showed him and he was like what the heck did you do. I had no idea what to do to fix it, he said well let me take the clippers and see if I can fix it. He ended up shaving one side all the way off; which is now in style LOL, I was not feeling it especially since I knew I'd have to rock that to job interviews. So, I told my husband just shave it all off and thus began my journey. At first it was a bit overwhelming since I'd never had hair that short in my entire life but then it grew on me and I got loads of compliments. Initially I put a texturizer in it but that started irritating my scalp the same way perms had and I decided to leave the chemicals alone and go all natural it only took one time to come to that conclusion. I kept it shaved for a long time getting it cut every other week for about 8-9 months before deciding to finally let it grow out, my hair is now past my shoulders when straight.
