I originally cut my hair for the Big Chop about two months ago. It was to make more of a fashion statement rather than to go natural, although that is my long term goal. It didn't really put me into shock or anything because this wasn't the first time I'd cut my hair completely off. It was back in 2008, when I was 17. My goal then was to go natural.
I can say that I'm much more pleased with the outcome 3 years later. I'm still in a debate with myself to see if I want to keep it short or let it grow out. I will keep you posted!
