Another one takes the plunge… A good friend of mine name Betty Gathers had been contemplating the “Big Chop” for some time. She’d watch videos, read blog posts and ask questions, educating herself on the process. She’d call, we’d talk about it and she’d go back to watching more YouTube video’s of individuals who had done the “Big Chop”. After going through that process for a while, "She finally did it"! And here are her thoughts and a few questions I asked about her hair and her journey to the “Big Chop”.
Mrs Betty's "Big Chop" Thoughs
Me: What made you decided to get Sisterlocks ® in your hair?
Mrs. Betty: Well, I started with regular locks initially, and then took them out. I tried taking care of my natural hair again but didn’t know how to properly do so. You see, my natural hair texture frizzes really bad… After not being able to tame it, I went to Sisterlocks ®. (She had Sisterlocks ® for Seven Years)
Me: What made you decide to do the "Big Chop"?
Mrs. Betty: I was just ready for my hair to be loose. I wanted to feel my hair and embrace it… I just got “that burning desire” to do it!
Me: Are you excited about your new hair journey?
Mrs. Betty: Yep!!! I am… I’m excited about learning my hair texture and how to properly take care of it.
Me: What advice would you give other women who are contemplating the “Big Chop”?
Mrs. Betty: You need to really educate yourself, be around supportive people and be confident… And don’t worry about what somebody else is going to say.
I guess Mrs. Betty had decided that enough was enough and made the “Big Chop”! She did it after much research and soul searching… Making the “Big Chop” is a “Big Decision”! For some, it’s a “Big Relief”, and for others, it’s the start of a “New Beginning” with learning and embracing your natural hair texture. Whatever your decision is for making the “Big Chop”, Celebrate It!
