It’s been just over a month since I did the big chop. I can tell you without hesitation that I have not regretted it for one minute. It is the best decision I have made in a long time. I am so in love with the ease of getting ready. I am so in love with not having any hot hair on my neck. I am so in love with playing with my curls!
Sometimes I see women with long hair and I feel a little sorry for them. I want to run up to them and tell them to let go of all that hair and cut it off. Mind you, I don’t think there is anything wrong with long hair, weaves, wigs, etc. But I want every woman to know the freedom of a TWA. Walking outside and it starts to rain? Shake it off and keep it moving. Want to go swimming in the morning but have a date in the afternoon? Wash and go!
Okay, okay. I realize I may be a little overly enthusiatic about the whole short hair thing. It’s just that for years I was a slave to my flat iron. I spent 45 minutes in the mirror every single morning getting it right. And that doesn’t include time spent washing and drying my hair. I truly don’t miss it at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not planning on having short hair forever. As a matter of fact, I have already noticed a lot of growth in the past 4 weeks. I can already pull my hair into a little ponytail. I couldn’t do that a month ago. I credit the complete lack of heat and the nourishing products from Original Moxie.
I’m about 8 weeks away from my birthday. I am eager to see what kind of growth I have by then. As much as I love having short hair, I really want to see what kind of versatility I’ll have when I have a little length.
