My first big chop was very dramatic, I planned it for months beforehand and everything was orchestrated and coordinated. My second big chop on the other hand was very last moment and a quick decision. My hair has been going through a lot since I had my daughter, I wrote about my postpartum shedding here and a filmed a video for my Youtube channel. I became tired of the stated of my hair and just went ahead and chopped it all off, the last time I had hair this short I was in varsity.
What regimen sis? lol! i’ve been doing the bare minimum to my hair. I wash it a few times a week using what ever shampoo or conditioner is in my shower. I haven’t been deep conditioning at all and my hair is already telling me know that it’s lacking some moisture.
Not active retaining length
I am currently over putting in effort to retain length, I have been doing it since 2013 when I found this world of healthy hair and I am tired. So now I’m just doing the bare minimum and breaking all the rules and it feels good! I feel I’m enjoying it because I know that whenever the time comes when I want to retain length again I have the know-how to do so.
Even though I am not actively retaining length I am still protective styling using wigs. I’ve fallen in love with wigs over the 10 months and I love how I can use them to change up my look. I am currently wearing wigs to work during th week and I wear my own hair out over the weekend.
So that is the current status of my hair and my second big chop, I will keep updating if anything changes but I am really enjoying the low maintenance, low fuss state.
