We, women, hold faith, confidence, and success in our hair. Sometimes, hair is security; a safe haven to hide from our insecurities and our troubles. When I did my big chop in 2012, it meant more than cutting my relaxed ends to join natural forces. I was letting go of insecurities and pain. I was not a confident woman growing up. I was bullied often and did not believe in my own beauty and what I was capable of. I had too many people calling me ugly and when I wasn’t being insulted, I felt ignored or misunderstood. My confidence improved in college, but I was still holding onto traumatic experiences in my past. I grew an interest in being natural because I saw incredible change in many women once they made the switch. Not just in their appearance, but in their spirit. I just felt a new aura and it compelled me to put down the creamy crack. My transition lasted a year and half before I decided to cut all my straight stringy strands. But I cried in regret for days. I felt small and unattractive without hair to hide behind. After a year of being natural, I permed my hair again. It took three attempts to go natural and stay natural. Why? I believe that I was harboring too much pain. Every big chop relieved some of it but not enough. My third big chop... that one was the ONE. That is because I was actually ready to change my life. I was done being afraid of growth, change, and being seen for who I truly am. I was completely open to shedding every insecurity and mistake that held me back. Since, I’ve become an improved version of myself and I continue to grow every day. Just like Violet in #NappilyEverAfter. My big chop was a milestone. #BigChopStory Make sure to watch #NappilyEverAfter, only on @Netflix! #sponsored
