To be honest, I planned my big chop. As I was counting my weeks post relaxer, I realised that on my birthday I will be exactly 30 weeks post relaxer and it was my 30th birthday – that felt like the right time to do it. I went on my birthday weekend away armed with my hair scissors and a few hair products for post big chop maintenance that would tide me over till I got back home.
I decided to do my rollerset which I postponed at my last wash day, the reason for the rollerset is to stretch my new growth (I am 13 weeks post) and get a straight/sleek look for my hair this week. I parted my hair into 4 sections and applied L’Oreal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Masque with Restoring Serum as my pre-poo. I covered my hair with a shower cap and pre-pooed for 30 minutes with heat.
