For so many months i have been thinking about doing the big chop to get my curls back after all the heat damage I have caused to it. But I never had the courage to actually do it. Instead I carried on damaging my hair, which occassionally trimming my hair and of course dying it. Not making the situation any better.
So the thought carried on making its rounds in my head, but the courage didnt quite come. So I decides to watch videos on youtube when I was home alone.. One video, two videos, three videos.. and so forth. When I got to the ninth or tenth video, I startad to think, "well it is only hair and will grow back again. Just healthier". So me and my computer wondered to the bathroom. I watched one more video then decided to wash my hair and then revisit youtube.
So after washing my shoulder length hair, I looked in the mirror and just saw my damaged curls. So without thinking twice abou the next move i was about to do, I just cut my hair. And cut and cut and cut. After cutting most of my hair, that I when I realised what I actually just had done. And I LOVED it!
After about two days, I did'nt feel like there was a huge change so I took the shaver this time. But before I did, I went to Youtube again and Google. But then the thought of it is just hair, I went back to the bathroom (without the computer) and took the shaver. 22mm. But still not much difference. Standing in the bathroom I was thinking to maybe go down to 18mm. Then the nerves came up and I was in doubt. I couldn't ask S because a two year old will say yes or no and have no idea what they answering sometimes. M was at work. But I did it. I went down to 18mm. And I felt great about it. That is when I felt like I really did have a big chop and the best feeling in the world. Especially when it is getting warmer in Denmark.
Now I am really going to take care of my hair.
And the only oils I use is Coconut oil.
It was been about 1,5 since I did the second cut and I can already feel that my hair is growing and is healthy. And the curls are definitely already sprouting out.
