I know you read the title and thought "What is this woman rambling about now?" Well, this is my first time blogging about this so I am just going to come out and say that I did the big chop. Even though I was already natural, but I had a lot of heat damage. I didn't want to admit it, but yes, I had it.

Now my new journey is will consist of getting my length back AND thickness, as well as overall health. 
Heat damage at it's worst. No curl pattern at all
Sorry for the rough picture but it was a random kind of night. It was 4 am and I was awake debating if I was really going to cut it off. After the back in forth in my mind, I started slowly chopping away, and guess what? My curls started popping. 

So I straightened my hair for the last time. I just couldn't resist. I had to have a picture to look back on.

I miss you hair. I really do. Sigh
Again, I fought with myself and finally did it.

The final result

YUCK!! I was embarrassed. I mean, I look horrible. But everyone else loves it. The first thing I did was buy some extensions and wrapped that up quickly into a bun. I am trying so hard not to straighten my hair at all but I am curious as to where exactly it is. 

Since I chopped on August 30th, I have been finding new ways to style my hair. I thought there was no hope but I did find a few things to do with it. I hope you all stick with me during this journey as I will now have to post weekly to keep myself encouraged to leave the heat alone. Wish me luck!
