The Big Chop

It's okay to start at the beginning... Again

I have been wearing my hair in it's naturally nappy state for two years now. I have loved and embraced my hair. I have nurtured and cared for it. It has in a sense been my child. I longed to see it grow and mature. Every inch of new growth was a new discovery. So I was definitely a little sad when I realized that I didn't like my hair anymore. It was no longer enjoyable, I didn't like styling it, and nothing had that awesome newness. It all felt very BLAH.

So I decided to cut it and start over. I've never been the type of woman who was emotionally attached to her hair- it's probably in part because I was raised by a man- so I cut it. Easy, simple, pain free, and not as "deep" as some people make it out to be.

I can definitely draw a comparison to the idea of letting go. When something is no longer serving us or bringing joy intone our lives, it's okay to simply remove it.

Because It's just hair.

Kisses,

Joelle
